      Local "Gewürztraminer" more acidy and more expensive than in Rh-Pfalz?

      Alsace Sep 24, 2015 at 10:57 PM

      Tried several. In France all were bought at LeClerc + Auchan + Norma + Aldi.
      In Germany from a local farm.

      Not sure why, but my Alsatian wine experiments weren't as successful as "farm experiments" in Germany.
      Maybe because I should compare apples with apples and not with (sour) grape?

      I.e. buy the wine from a farm?

      Had a similar experiment few month ago in Hungary (Auchan Hungary wine versus farmer).
      It was a day and night difference.

      From CDG to Saint-Michel Notre-Dame taking the Taxi or the RER train & questions.

      Paris Sep 16, 2015 at 10:42 AM

      There will be 4 of us arriving at CDG airport and traveling to a hotel near the Metro, Saint-Michel. Using a taxi as compared to the RER train, what would you recommend? Comparing convenience, cost, time and anything else? Also, when I look at a map it seems that the Saint-Michel Notre-Dame RER station is a different than the Metro Saint-Michel which is walking distance from our hotel. According to the map the RER station is a bit longer walk or are the really the same underground? We would be arriving mid day. Thank you.

      transfer time needed

      Paris Sep 28, 2015 at 3:12 PM

      Hi all

      We're looking into flying to South Africa.
      We have found a very favorable price flying from Düsseldorf to Paris CDG.
      The transfer time is 1h35 minutes.
      Do you think this will be enough to go through the necessary checks and still be on time for our connection to Johannesburg?
      Since the tickets has departure Dssd and destination Jnb and this transfer time is what KLM calculates, I guess this should be enough?
      Never been to CDG yet, so I don't have a clue how chaotic or organised things are around there ...

      Thanks for your input!

      Which Town is best as a base. Avignon? Arles? Aix? St. Remy?

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur 16 hours ago

      Hello Friends,

      Hope you're all well! We are taking a short impromptu trip to Provence and would love some advice.

      We will be making a loop from Torino through the Tunnel of Frejus to the area somewhere around Avignon where we will stay 3ish nights to explore the area.

      Would you give me some advice on which town would be the best to use as a base? We will have car so that we can explore during the day, but we'd like a town that is interesting in its own right with restaurants, shops and sites.

      I will be visiting Paris next year for 3 days and will be staying at Nanterre (near the RER station Nanterre Prefecture-Zone 3). I will be making around 10-12 trips during my stay in and around centre of Paris and will also be going to Disneyland and Bateaux Parisiens river cruise (4 Euro discount with Paris Visite card). Please let me know if the Paris Visite card for 3 days, Zone 1-3 (for 26 Euros per person), will be cost effective or not. Or should I go for carnet of 10 t+ tickets for 14 Euros.? I will have to commute through RER A for most trips to Paris centre, & I believe the t+ tickets are valid only for RER on Zone 1 and not on Zone 3.

      Awaiting reply on priority.

      I will be in Ajaccio on 10, 11 and 12 June. I had planned to do day trips with Authentic Tours after reading rave reviews, but they are already booked out and my only hope is a cancellation. Most disappointing. Can anyone suggest another reliable company to take me on day trips? Is it possible to hire a private (safe) driver? I definitely want to go to Bonifacio, and was also considering Corte, and Piana and Scandola, but I'm open to suggestion. I don't want to drive myself. If I leave things until my arrival and just go to the tourist bureau, I'm worried I might miss out altogether. I'm happy to do train and boat trips too, as long as they are day trips from Ajaccio. Looking forward to hearing your suggestions.

      Planning a trip for two to Corsica, we would like to see the beaches and towns, and the mountains, and are willing to spend a week or so in one location before travelling to another for a few days. Neither of us can drive and we haven't been able to find any obvious bus/train routes that might take us inland. Is there anywhere at all where we can find the best of both worlds, or is there any public transport that might get us from one to the other?

      Itinerary Advice

      Corsica Feb 5, 2014 at 1:58 PM

      I'd love to get your input on our itinerary. Are we missing anything we should see and do? And/or are the distances we're travelling too far to make this a nice vacation?

      We are a family of 3 traveling to Corsica and Italy over the dates of August 22nd - September 1st. We fly into Nice and will take the ferry to Ajaccio. We spend 2 nights at the Radission Blu hotel and will not rent a car for these two days instead opt to visit on foot. Is this doable in this area or do we need a car to get around? If we don't need a car we planned to rent on the day we depart Ajaccio and drive through Sartene stop for lunch do some hiking along the way and take our time. We'll stop oi Bonifaccio and then look for a hotel in the Porto Vechio/Bonifaccio area. We'll spend 2 nights in this area with our rental car so we can driver to beaches, hikes and the like. We plan to take a ferry from Porto Vechio to Naples (if there is one) and then spend 3 days along the Amalfi coast. We then take the train up to Rome where we'll spend the night of September 1st in a hotel and depart for home on an early morning flight September 2nd.

      Any comments or suggestions are welcomed.
