      old writers club in Little France

      Strasbourg Jun 29, 2015 at 3:20 PM

      As you walk towards Little France ( from ? NW) and just before the half timbered houses begin there is a vegetarian olde worlde cafe. There were pictures of some famous writers on the wall of the stairway leading to an upper floor. Apparently some rich benefactor had put forward money for a writers club to have its meetings there. I think this was in the 1800s or early 1900s but could be earlier. I can't remember the name of the place or the full history. Anyone help?

      Walk from Les Baumettes to Calanque de Sormiou

      Marseille Jul 7, 2015 at 5:49 AM

      Can anyone tell me if there is an obvious walking path from where the number 22 bus drops you in Les Baumettes down to Calanque de Sormiou? The path I can see on Google maps looks obvious enough but, although we are fit enough to pick our way over rough terrain, we don't want to guess our route down and up again. We will be on foot but I read in information that, in the summer months, people have to walk some distance from car parks down to this area anyway. (I think this is pertains to the road from the other direction) Any first hand information out there?

    • beach fishing?

      Boulogne-sur-Mer Jul 26, 2015 at 4:45 PM

      Hello! We were wondering if there are any good places for a spot of beach fishing? We are planning to visit in summer, and fancied a bit of spinning for Bass or Mackerel. I have studied the satellite maps, and we are happy to go anywhere from Dunkirk down as we will be driving. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Sarah

    • Going to Metzingen

      Strasbourg Jul 9, 2015 at 5:37 AM

      I'm currently staying in Strasbourg and I'd like to go to the Outlets in Metzingen to profit from the summer sales. I don't have a car though so I'd like to know which is the best way to get there for like a day and then come back.
      With a quick google search I found this company (http://shopping-shuttle.eu/) that seems to do something similar to what I want but I don't know if people can advise me, or tell me if they know this Shopping Shuttle

    • Unique Places

      France Jul 26, 2015 at 9:39 AM

      Hi,
      We are planning a 7 day driving trip from Barcelona to Oradour-sur-Glane, in west-central France.
      I'm not asking for an itinerary just some ideas of what other interesting unique points of interest that may be in the area.
      I'm not so much into wine tasting, shopping or other typical tourist sites,these can be found in any travel guide.My interests are more towards historical,abandoned,ruins and relics of the past.Any suggestions would be most helpful.
      Thanks..
      Richard.

    • Apartment in Fabron

      I am thinking about booking an apartment in the Fabron district and wondered what the public bus service was like; which bus will take me to the town centre and how long will it take? If I want to travel to Cannes or Monte Carlo should I take the train or the bus ? If I use the bus where do I get on in Nice? Any information would be much appreciated.

    • Where to stay

      Roquebrune-Cap-Martin Jul 9, 2015 at 1:52 AM

      Our daughter is performing in the Grimaldi Forum in November and so we want to come to stay for the weekend and watch her. The question is, with a tight budget, do we find a cheap hotel in Monaco, or go to somewhere nearby, like Roquebrune? Any recommendations? Just for me and my husband, 1 night. Thanks.

    • MSM and WW2 Normandy Beaches -One base or two?

      France Jul 6, 2015 at 3:17 PM

      Apologies if this question has been asked (in some form) a thousand or so times already.
      Just fantasizing about a 9 day trip to France late September. DEFINITELY want to see Mt St Michel and full day at the WW2 sites. We would take train from Paris and pick up a car at most convenient suggested location.
      FULL DISCLOSURE: I have a tendency to underestimate distances and, as a result, end up on endless - albeit often enjoyable - drives. Is it practical to keep one base between MSM and the Normandy beaches without subjecting my wife to 4 hours in the car? also, I HATE tolls roads.

      We would budget 4 or 5 nights in the West and the rest in Paris (with, likely, Paris at the end of our stay).
      Any suggestions, guidance or opinions solicited (and appreciated, in advance).
