Plus I'm a little self conscious about not speaking a word of French; typically I'd at least like to pretend to attempt to converse in the local languages of the places I travel. With me only connecting through CDG I haven't really had the motivation to pick up French.

@MarLim thanks for that detailed writeup! I feel much better about this connection!
I understand - I was being a bit of a smart ....

ETA: I haven't gone through CDG much because I try to route through AMS whenever possible. It's more expensive, but worth it, IMO.
