It's been a whirlwind month for Ben and Woods, and I'm happy to say that we're settling in nicely at our new home at 97.3 The Fan.  Frankly, we were all ready to go a couple of weeks ago, but I just haaaaaad to take my honeymoon, albeit a much-delayed honeymoon.  My wife Hannah and I had the chance to spend 12 days in London and Paris, and even though I'm paying for it now with some serious jet lag and plane flu, it was totally worth it.  Thanks for being patient with us while I knocked this trip of a lifetime out.  

We started our trip in London, and other than the Tower of London, the highlight for us had to be meeting actor Andy Wagner (aka David Wallace from The Office).  We were sitting in the sauna when my wife said "Hey look...it's British David Wallace" to which I replied, "No babe...that's ACTUALLY David Wallace."  We sat in chairs by the pool and watched him swim laps for about 20 minutes and as he was toweling off, I approached him.  I've never been known for my timing, but he couldn't have been cooler.  He wrote us a really nice note on Dunder Mifflin stationary and left it at the concierge desk for us.  It was pretty amazing for two massive fans of the show, and his character in particular.  

We cut our trip short in London because basically after the Tower of London and Abbey Road, every pub kind of looks the same.  With two extra days in Paris, we really took advantage, and thanks to the help of some Bird scooters, we were able to cover 13 miles in the first day.  Some highlights were: The Eiffel Tower (obviously), Sacre Coeur (best view of the city by far), L' Entrecote (they invented steak frites here....ridiculous meal), The Musee Rodin, Shakespeare and Co (best bookstore in the world).  ​Paris was absolutely electric, and I couldn't recommend it more.  It's a city that has to be seen to be believed.  If you're going and need more recommendations, please hit me up on Twitter at @thestevenwoods.
