Overnight Luxury Bus Between Los Angeles And San Francisco

One-way fares on Cabin start at $85, and it takes about eight night hours. That’s city center to city center, and a comparable airline trip isn’t that much quicker nor cheaper.

Although the actual in-air flight time is only about two hours, consider getting to and from the airport, parking, security check-in and tarmac delays. The total flying journey takes about the same time as the bus ride. And without the private, stretched-out sleep comfort and California dawn window views.

Paris, France: Viewing Fire Damaged Notre Dame Cathedral PDF Print E-mail

Q: We’ll be in Paris later in the month and want to see all the famous sites, including Notre Dame. Of course, we know about the terrible fire, but even if we can’t go in, we’d like to visit the historic church. Mrs. PLB, Boston MA

A: You can wander on sidewalks near the cathedral, but the entire structure is surrounded by tall steel fences while extensive repairs are ongoing. It’s difficult to see much from close-up. If you want selfies and photos, the best way of viewing the entire cathedral is by going over to walkways on the other side of the River Seine. Sadly, it could take years for full restoration.
