      Quimper pottery lover needing recommendations & Hotel

      Quimper Aug 1, 2016 at 8:52 AM

      I'll be visiting Quimper in the spring of next year. I'll probably take a train from Angers. I'm looking for recommendations of a mid range, small authentic hotel which would be walking distance from the best area to shop for Quimper pottery. Love the antiques. . . not sure of pricing. Would love to see lots of versions of this wonderful pottery.

    • Hiking around Chamonix in mid-October

      Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Aug 13, 2016 at 4:08 AM

      Hi guys, I will be in Chamonix in mid October for 4-5 days. Hoping to do some easy hike around the area. It's the first time that I'm visiting hence would appreciate any information.

      - Will there be snow in mid October? Any easy hikes where the trails would have snow?

      - I've read that waterproof hiking shoes are required for October? Do I need to bring one or any trail running shoes will suffice (non-waterproof)?

      - The weather forecast tends to show between 5-15 degrees celsius for mid October. But I'm not sure if this is taken from the town or from summit or in between? What kind of temperature can I expect if I'm looking to do some hikes. Any trail hikes from Aiguille du Midi stations?

      - Any other recommended activities for a first time visitor? Greatly appreciate any information.

      Thanks in advance!

    • Versailles including night show

      Versailles Aug 21, 2016 at 12:21 AM

      We are wanting to see the whole of versailles or as much as we can! We are going on a saturday 10/9 which we know will be busy but we are willing to put up with this as we would like to attend the night fountain show and the royal serenade also. My question is should we just buy tickets for entry with the shows included and only go during the night which is a tour that includes an hour beforehand to walk around and see the palace OR should we buy separate tickets for entry and for the night show and then just spend the whole day roaming around seeing everything and then see the shows and make our way back?

      Also recommendations for best way there and back from paris please.

    • 2 Days in Paris - First trip - end of September

      Paris Jul 30, 2016 at 11:14 PM

      My wife and I are heading to Paris Sunday Sept 25th - Tuesday Sept 27th. We fly into Frankfurt, Germany Sunday morning and will be taking a train to Paris around noon that day. We have booked a place to stay with Airbnb centrally located by The Eiffel Tower. My wife wants to see the Eiffel Tower and my number 1 thing to do is the Louve museum. I have looked into a guided tour with the Louve museum as to bypass some lines but have also been told that we are going during off peak times so shouldn't be as busy. Also I was thinking of going to the museum first thing Monday morning with the guided tour then staying and exploring more of the museum that day. Then possibly walking over to the Arc de Triumph. Exploring the Eiffel tower Sunday afternoon and evening. Any suggestions for us as we will only have about 2 days there? Any local restaurants in that area that are a must to eat at? Also any better time for the places we are wanting to see or anything else close we can squeeze in? Thank you for your help and answers.

    • UK flyers?

      Paris Aug 5, 2016 at 1:35 PM

      My friend has never flown before and is coming to the USA in late August. As a complete oversight (A regrettable one I fear) he booked a connection for his return flight home at CDG with a connection time of 1 hour and 25 minutes (!!!!!) His return flight itinerary is LIT-ATL-CDG- BHX. Since his connection time in Paris is so tight, I’m worried about any additional things he may have to do before boarding. This is booked on one airline and not a cobbled together itinerary. My question is would he have to reclaim his checked baggage and go through immigration in Paris? I know he will have to do this on his flight into ATL as his first port of entry, even though he has booked with the same airline for the whole trip. BUT since the UK is not part of the Schengen agreement, it seems to me he may have to do this again in Paris. If he does have to do that (Claim his bags, go through immigration, recheck bags) then his connection time is entirely too short and he needs to get a game plan for what he may have to do to deal with it.
      Thanks in advance

      Transport from Mezt town center to Parc des expositions de Metz

      by arissyam Online Now Dec 2, 2014 at 4:29 AM

      Hello all,

      Im planning to attend a function at Parc des expositions de Metz or Mezt Expo in November 2015. I did some readings from posting and blogs in planning this trip (my first trip to Europe, anyway). But there are few things that i would like to confirm to...

      1) is there any bus or shuttle bus that going up to the Metz expo from the town center? and the cost too..

      2) which area is the best place to stay in Mezt for low budget/backpackers traveller? i've looked at Auberge de la Jeunesse de Metz.. but im afraid it would be pretty far from the public transport... for a non-french speaking tourist like me

      your kind replies are highly appreciated. thank u. :)

      Hi,

      I'm researching a future trip and plan to spend a day exploring Metz before leaving in late afternoon. I seem to have found a website that says the (central) train station no longer has lockers. Is there anywhere to store luggage nearby, or might one of the hotels allow me to leave my suitcase there for a few hours?

    • Landrefang (or Laudrefang?)

      by cathy9510usa Online Now Apr 5, 2013 at 11:06 AM

      Research for my great-grandfather lead me to a site where a handwritten note said he was born in Landrefang. I googled this term and can't find anything but a street named that in St Avold, plus a mention of this town in a US Military record from World War I. I do see a Laudrefang near St. Avold, though, on my large-scale map of France

      Does anyone know if Landrefang and Laudrefang are the same place, or if not, where Landrefang might be?

      Thank you very much for any help you can give.

      In lieu of that what is the fare between Lux. and Trier and Lux. and Nancy or Metz? I could not find a Luxembourg rail site to get this info.

    • finding an appartment in Metz

      by theloniouszen Online Now Aug 26, 2006 at 11:58 AM

      Hello, I am starting a teaching job in the Metz suburbs in October and will be living there until May. I think the custom for finding an apartment in France is to pay a bunch of money to an agence and get a list of appartments, then pay 2 months rent security deposit, etc. Is this what everyone does, including students? I'm American and I'm used to not having to find an agency, just going out and picking up rental guides for free. How do most students in town end up finding apartments and such? Is there any areas or districts of Metz that are better/worse than others for safety/crime? Anyone have any good apartment leads?

      Thanks!
