      How many nights for Cahors?

      Cahors Oct 29, 2015 at 9:12 AM

      On our slow journey from Collonges la Rouge, we're considering a stop in Cahors. We've looked it up and it sounds great, but when people are doing write ups of their own town they always make it sound great. So this question is for those of you who've been there--is it worth two or three days?

      Carte Vitale question / Strasbourg / Alsace

      France Yesterday

      Have tumor(?) issues. Have no Carte Vitale due error of German DAK. Spent countless time to get all the paperwork, only their (DAK) EU form whatever-number is missing, asked already twice: "we will send you it within 10 days".

      The "10 days" passed at least 5 times.

      Still, no EU-form-whatever (and thus no Carte Vitale). In the mean time the doctors in Karlsruhe and Budapest want me to see a surgeon "sure is sure, you probably do not have a cancer - but ethically we may not tell you anything else, just see a surgeon"

      It's not a pleasure to see a surgeon - but:

      1) How should I proceed with French authorities? The doctors want it to be done soon (even that I recall the tumor or what-not) being there for good number of years (if not for most of my life, but not 100% sure)

      2) Any decent oncologist / urologist in Strasbourg?

      3) How the French system works anyway? (Have no idea, except that I need that Carte Vitale what somehow I can't get even that I have a suitcase of papers - one from DAK is missing and they keep screwing it up)

      Sorry, it's not about the travel - I am just kind of busy with all traveling, working, IT stuff, family and other things, have no time for crap like dying or so, neither mood, just in case... would appreciate some help. Thanks.

      Land borders open?

      France Nov 17, 2015 at 9:32 AM

      What is the situation on the land borders with Germany? I am stuck in Hungary (as we know, French government officials asking for extensive paperwork for anything). I was complying with all the paperwork requests from the French government (and this is not very fast in Hungary or RU either).

      While doing so we had the tragic events first with the airplane, than in Paris. The newspapers in Hungary report that the borders are closed - but now I have to travel back (by car) and have no idea, what is going on.

      Will try to call the French Embassy but if any local in Strasbourg and / or Karlsruhe would tell what is the situation on the ground that would be helpful. I live in Alsace.

    • Help with transport to and around Arras to see family WWI graves

      by TennGerry Online Now Feb 27, 2010 at 1:00 PM

      Last item on husband's short 'bucket list" is to visit the graves of 2 young uncles, 15 and 17, who died while serving with the Canadian Expeditionary Forces during WWI. Although the location of the graves is known, I don't believe any family has ever been there.

      May 2010 will be our first trip ever to France and need some help with transport. From the UK four of us will travel to Calais by ferry unless taking Eurostar to Lille would be a better choice. Is there any way to arrange train and bus transport from Calais to rural Arras, Ficheux and Sains-en Gohelle over 3-4 days? If that isn't possible any suggestions on car rental, places to stay, eat and ideas on making our way to the gravesites. We will have a GPS with Europe maps with us. BUT what is the driving like in France?
      Thank you, stalwart, knowledgeable souls of VT
