I'm in the thick of travel planning for next summer. Our idea is to fly from LAX to Paris to spend a few days in the city and a few days at D-Day sites and then to fly to Scotland to see the land of my love's ancestors for a week or ten days.

I've done much research as to sites we'd like to see in each place ( and will post shortly so you can all pick it apart!) but could use your practical advice now regarding getting there.

Do you prefer red eye flights or no? Specific airlines one way to Paris and another airline coming from Glasgow or Edinburgh? We could fly into one or out of the other... makes no difference at this point. Airlines to completely avoid?

What other travel things should I be thinking about before I decide on a specific itinerary? I know travel.driving times in Scotland are more than what is listed on google maps... I've read many threads here in putting together my ideas.

What did you plan well?

What do you wish you had done differently?

if you live in France or Scotland, what advice do you wish you could tell all travelers to your area?

Thanks in advance!
