      Paris Yesterday

      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.

      Booking online impossible

      by Elweb Online Now Jul 14, 2012 at 5:07 AM

      Me and my wonderful, sexier half, plan to stay for a couple of days in Montpellier, starting 30 july 2012, in the middle of the night. We've already searched the internet, off course, and found some nice hotels, but there are some problems. Since neither one of us trust the banks, we don't keep money there, so we lack credit cards, making impossible the booking of rooms... So, my question is: does any of you visited Montpellier and managed to stay anywhere OTHER than hotels? Or at least, knows a hotel that doesn't require credit card on booking online? And, for sure: any VT members living there, or visiting in the same period wants to share a few minutes, just for a photo? :D We don't bite!

    • Montpellier airport to SupAgro 2 place Pierre VIALA

      by shjap Online Now May 23, 2012 at 12:40 PM


      I would like to know, what is the cheapest way (apart from taking a walk:))to get from the Montpellier airport to the 2,place Pierre Viala and then to 205 rue Croix de Las Cazes.
      Also, is it permitted to stay at the airport overnight, as my plane would most probably land by the midnight (though haven't booked a flight so far) and on the next day early in the morning I must come at secretary’s office at the student residence - 205 rue Croix de Las Cazes to register. I'm reluctant to pay some extra money booking a hotel to stay there just for a few night hours.

      On this forum I've been advised to find a taxi company, as the SupAgro is about 75km away. It can't be that far, perhaps 7,5 km were meant? Google map on shows that the distance from the airport to 205 Rue Croix de las Cazes is aprox.12,8 km. Is that true? and are there any coaches or trams running that direction from the airport?

      By the way, is Les Hameaux residence and 'Cité des Elèves' situated at rue Croix de Las Cazes, a safe place to live?(I mean this urban district).

Also, are there any buses that ply from Avignon to Montpellier at night (since there don't seem to be any trains available) or should we take taxis?
