In fact, Charles de Gaulle airport is where a man spent 18 years living in Terminal 1, which is the true story which Tom Hank’s The Terminal is based on.
I’m a huge fan of Thailand and everything it has to offer. Even though things have changed recently there, I look forward to getting back as soon as I can.

If you manage to make it to northern Thailand before I do, these are the trips from Chiang Mai I’d recommend.
