    • Baggage storage in Paris

      Paris Dec 3, 2016 at 10:04 PM

      Hi guys,
      I am heading to Paris in January. On my last day I do not need to be at the airport until about 5 o'clock to catch my plane to Sydney. I obviously want to make the most of this as a sight-seeing day(possibly Disnayland) but will have my luggage with me. Does anybody know of any storage lockers or something I would be able to take my big bag to? Does the airport have lockers for rent? Or does Disneyland have big storage cubes? Or would some hotels offer baggage holding even when you have checked out?
      Thanks

    • Solo woman traveling in Paris on New Years Eve

      Paris Nov 28, 2016 at 10:57 AM

      I am a 54 year old woman who will be arriving in Paris Orly airport on Thursday, December 29 at 5 pm,
      and flying out of DeGalle airport on Sunday, January 1 at 11 am.

      My questions...

      1. What area in Paris should I stay in?
      Since I really only have two days I would like a great location to walk to things in the area and as a base for sightseeing. I would be so grateful for decent, hotel and restaurant suggestions in that area?

      2. What is the best/easiest way to get from Orly to "that area" at that time of day?

      3. Are there any good one day tours?
      I would probably book that for Friday or Saturday, and spend the other day on my own exploring the area around my hotel.

      4. What is there to do on New Years Eve? I don't drink but would love to know what would be safe for me to do alone that night.

      Thank you very much!

      Can anyone suggest a day-trip from Paris?

      Paris Nov 11, 2016 at 7:32 AM

      I will be visiting Paris in a few weeks. I have been to Paris numerous times and know it very well. Equally, I have taken many day-trips from Paris and have been to all the obvious places (and even beyond). Can anyone suggest a new place I might visit? I am looking for a place within a two hour radius by train.

      I like quaint places, and/or places that has a old worldly feel to them. I enjoy visiting places with a riverside setting as well e.g. Moret-sur-Loing. 

      Here is a short list of day-trips I have taken:

      Amiens, Auxerre, Beauvais, Bourges, Châlons-en-Champagne, Chantilly, Chartres, Compiègne, Dijon, Fontainebleau, Giverny, Moret-sur-Loing, Orléans, Provins, Reims, Rouen, Senlis, Sens, Tours, Troyes, Versailles.  

      I have not listed other places I have visisted that are further a way e.g. Caen, Lyon, Metz, Nancy, Nantes, Rennes etc.

      At the moment I am thinking of visiting Meaux (because there is a cathedral in Meaux), but I would like to have a few other places on my list. I thought of trying to get to Avallon and/or Loches, but it appears there aren't any direct (or very few direct) trains to Avallon or Loches.

      Many thanks

    • Alsace and Black Forest

      Alsace Apr 14, 2016 at 5:06 PM

      Hi
      In July I will travel to Alsace for 6 days / 7 nights.

      I think it is best to base in Colmar and rent a car to visit the nearby villages and go to Strasbourg where I will take the return flight.

      I would like to visit the Black Forest.

      I appreciate suggestions to the following questions:

      - How many days should I devote to Colmar Wine Route?

      - Give time to go to Freiburg, Lake Titisee and Triberg in the Black Forest?

      - The roads will be safe in the Black Forest? The distances are short, but travel times indicated on Google Maps are too long for short distances indicate.

      - How many days should I stay in Strasbourg?

      I am very grateful for your suggestions.

      Thanks very much

      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.

      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?

    • Base at Kaysersberg or Turckheim?

      Alsace Jun 18, 2015 at 7:08 PM

      Hi there!

      My boyfriend and I will be travelling to Alsace region in the last week of November. We will be training from Paris to Strasbourg or Colmar, and work our way north or south. The places that we hope to visit are Strasbourg, Colmar, Villages (Eguisheim, Riquewihr, Kayersberg, Turckheim), Europa-Park and Frieburg. We have about 10 days, and will be renting a car from Strasbourg or Colmar (depending where we arrive from).

      Our current itinerary is as follows:
      Day 1: Paris-Strasbourg (Arrive in noon)
      Day 2: Strasbourg
      Day 3: Strasbourg-Rust(Europa-park), arrive in the evening
      Day 4: Europa-Park
      Day 5: Rust-Frieburg (Arrive in noon)
      Day 6: Freiburg-Kayersberg/Turckheim (Arrive in evening)
      Day 7/8/9: Explore Egusheim, Colmar, Riquewihr
      Day 10: Colmar-Paris

      Will the above plan be ok?

      Also, will Kayersberg or Turckheim make a better base from Day 6-10? We are looking for a place hat is less touristy, has several restaurans and a market/grocery store nearby so that we can cook, and with friendly neighbours of course!

      Thank you very much!

      I have a plan to travel from Paris to Colmar via Strassbourg and stay one night at Colmar. Could anyone recommend the best route to get there? I will take a train from Paris to Strassbourg, and then direct to Colmar.

      1. Should I travel by Bus or train from Strassbourg to Colmar? Which one is better in terms of budget and time wise?
      2. If I choose the bus, Where can I find the bus timetable and fair?
      3. For return trip, which one between bus and train is the best to return to Paris in late afternoon? Do I need to take the train to Strassbourg and then take the train to Paris? Or any direct bus or train to Paris with lowest cost?

      Thank you for your kind assistance.

      Walking to Struthof

      Natzwiller Jun 17, 2014 at 2:57 PM

      Hello! I am visiting the museum and former camp at Struthof, as part of my research about the interplay of collective memory and war museums. I am very excited about this visit, as I have heard the site is a must-see, but am finding the logistics difficult.

      After talking to the local tourism office, I've decided to take an early-morning train to Rothau. From there, my plan is to walk to the camp. The tourism office gave me some instructions about which hiking paths to take, but I was wondering if anyone here had any advice. I am ready for a long, relatively difficult walk, but just don't want to get lost out in the woods. (I know I said "I never want to leave Alsace..." but I didn't mean it that way!)

      We arrive in Strasbourg by train at 11am on a Tuesday from spending 8 nights in Paris. First time visitors to France. We wont have a car. What can we see and do in 2 days in early August in Strasbourg? Are there 1 day cruises up the Rhine? Can we cross into Germany easily by bus to a quaint little town, or would you say that Strasbourg is very similar to boarder towns - maybe even prettier? We will of course walk around Le Petitte France and take a water cruise around the island.

      The day we leave Strasbourg, we pick up a car and drive to Colmar for 3 nights. What can we see and do along the way to Colmar ?
