    • 4 days - Villefrance or Beaulieu-sur-mer??

      Beaulieu-sur-Mer Yesterday

      Can't decide between these 2 lovely towns, these are our requirements:-
      1. easy to get in and out of the town by car, so that we can see the mountain villages and other places on the coast
      2. good local bars and restaurants (don't have to be fancy) to enjoy at night and just walk home to our accommodation
      3. nice local beach, clean water, private or public that we can enjoy without having to travel far from our accommodation. (or a very short drive)
      Would love to hear from local experts or those who have stayed in both towns? Thanks so much in advance.

    • personal shopper

      Strasbourg Dec 23, 2014 at 5:06 AM

      I was just in Strasbourg last week at the Christmas markets. I purchased some items at the Cathedral Market at a vendor right by the tourist information shop. I want more from this vendor, but she didn't speak English and I paid with cash. Have tried the Strasbourg tourist dept and got no where.

      Does anyone have any ideas or know of a shopper for hire (in the US, we would call them personal shoppers) ? thanks

      Transport from Mezt town center to Parc des expositions de Metz

      Metz Dec 2, 2014 at 4:29 AM

      Hello all,

      Im planning to attend a function at Parc des expositions de Metz or Mezt Expo in November 2015. I did some readings from posting and blogs in planning this trip (my first trip to Europe, anyway). But there are few things that i would like to confirm to...

      1) is there any bus or shuttle bus that going up to the Metz expo from the town center? and the cost too..

      2) which area is the best place to stay in Mezt for low budget/backpackers traveller? i've looked at Auberge de la Jeunesse de Metz.. but im afraid it would be pretty far from the public transport... for a non-french speaking tourist like me

      your kind replies are highly appreciated. thank u. :)

      Paris Museum pass over 1st of May

      Paris 2 hours ago

      We will be arriving in Paris on the 29th of April next year and we'll be there until 4 May. We only realised yesterday that 1 May is a holiday and most sites will be closed.

      The Paris Museum Pass needs to be used consecutively. If we buy a 4/6 day pass on the 29th, does that mean we cannot use it after 1 May as we won't be able to use it the the 1st because most sites are closed?

      Bus line 72. Hotel de Ville

      Paris Yesterday

      Hi everyone.
      I will be staying very close to Hotel de Ville and I´m planning on taking the bus line 72 from Hotel de Ville to the Eiffel Tower because I want to be on the surface and do some sightseeing instead of travelling underground.
      I checked out the route plan and on RATP and the stop for hotel the Ville seems to be the end of the line, so I want to know if I can board the bus there as well as the exact location of the bus stop.
      Thanks!!!

    • New Year's Eve in Rennes

      Rennes Dec 15, 2014 at 9:52 AM

      Hello. I am taking my partner as a surprise for New Year to France and we are arriving in Rennes early-mid afternoon on the 31st. We are staying in an apartment, so as to give us a choice over eating in or dining out.
      A few questions, therefore :

      1) We are arriving in to Dinard airport on the morning of the 31st – what is the best way to get from the airport to Rennes ? I understand there is a bus from Pleurtuit or are we better getting the train from St Malo ?
      2) What time are shops open on the 31st (in case we need to buy groceries to cook our dinner that evening) ?
      3) Will restaurants be very busy (as it is New Year’s Eve) and should we therefore book in advance ? (Also : any recommendations ?)
      4) What should we seek out (and what should we avoid ?!?) as midnight strikes ?
      5) Any other suggestions or thoughts on what we should see or do.
      Very many thanks in advance.

      Hello,

      I am currently thinking of going to Taize for 2 weeks by myself. However, I wonder the following:
      1. Is it a good idea to Taize by yourself? (i.e. not in a group?) Is it to join other people in workshops, talks, meetings?
      2. Is it possible to during 28/12/2014 to 11/01/2015? On the online registration page, it says there are meetings all year, except from 25/12 until 06/01. What does this mean? Is Taize closed then?

Hubby is still apprehensive about driving in France and is worried about what it is like getting off the ferry in Boulogne, we went there on a day trip about 19 years ago and the roads were so busy. We will be travelling to the Compiegne area. Is it still busy, or will we be ok getting out of Boulogne on to the main road?

Also can you recommend a hotel - centre of the town is best. If its out of town it should have a restaurant within walking distance (preferable a choice of restaurants as I am a vege!).
