      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!

    • Paris Visite vs. 10 t+ Ticket Carnet

      Paris Oct 4, 2015 at 11:18 PM


      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'd much prefer the one in the city, but it doesn't have parking (hotel says "Public parking is available at a nearby location and charges are applicable." Can anyone tell me how far away such parking lots are and how much they charge? We would only need it for one overnight.
