    • Which taxi serice should I hire from Orly to Paris?

      Paris Nov 28, 2015 at 5:46 AM

      Hello all,

      I am planning to have a Paris trip within a few days. I have travel schedule that I have to land on Orly airport and then go to the city from there. But as I am not familiar with the city and the transportation system, I am planning to rent a taxi from there. So, I need to know about the taxi services in Paris. Is there any meter manipulation practice does the drivers conduct? How is the fare rate? Where and how to book them?

      I went through the internet find a good taxi service but there are many options available. Among them, a service named Taxi in Paris grabbed my attention primarily. Please guys, let me know your experience in the city of Paris.

      Thanks in advance.

      Carte Vitale question / Strasbourg / Alsace

      France Nov 24, 2015 at 2:32 PM

      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.

    • Restaurants for New Year's Eve in PARIS?

      Paris Nov 26, 2015 at 7:08 AM

      Hello! Me and my husband will be traveling to Paris for the New Year's. I've read a lot of reviews, advice and articles about choosing the right restaurant for the New Year's Eve — and I'm a little afraid to rely on some paid commercial articles offering Top-10 restaurants... The thing is that we do not want an overpriced, super-famous, crowded place. We don't even want any show, no Moulin Rouge or other type of cabaret. We'd love spending this evening in a very cosy, traditional French restaurant. Candles, small, good food, good wine, may be jazz/live music but not like a concert. Budget is around 80 EUR per person. Might be slightly more. I'd very much appreciate your advice.

      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.

    • 48hrs in Bordeaux - Wine tour, hotel and more

      by antuantuan Online Now Apr 13, 2015 at 7:52 AM


      I'm planning a weekend (from Friday night to Sunday night) in May.

      One of the things I'd definitely want to do is a Wine Tour. St Emilion seems to the most recommended choice both in terms of quality of wines and scenery. Now the main question would be whether it'd be worth doing a 1 day tour or just an afternoon one. What would you recommend? Also, small group or private?

      As far as the hotel is concerned, I have short listed the Grand Hotel and the Burdigala. I would get a fairly similar package for either at a similar price. I quite like the contemporary look of the Burdigala, but the Grand Hotel seems quite iconic and I love the fact that they have a spa that we could use. Any advice?

      Lastly, any other recommendations to make our 48 hours even more special?

      Was wondering if someone could advise on the protocol surrounding chateaux visits by bicycle?

      Not sure what the dress code is when visiting these Chateau... Will they perceive it as disrespectful when arriving on a bicycle and dressed in jeans and short-sleeved shirt?
