    • Summer holiday

      France Jan 11, 2017 at 3:11 AM

      Sorry to hear this site is shutting down.

      I had an incredible summer honeymoon in Switzerland thanks entirely to commenters on this forum. I'm really grateful.

      This question is very broad but I thought I might get lucky again!

      Hoping for a may/June family holiday this year.
      Traveling with a three year old and a one year old.
      Beach, hotel, pools, nature, good food, a nice little town nearby.
      We really want it to be child friendly with food and drink readily available but not too big a complex.
      Also considering Italy and Greece, I'll post over there too.

      Many thanks if you have any thoughts!
      Emma

    • Provence France1 week extra

      Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Jan 16, 2017 at 11:47 AM

      I will be ending a tour of southern France on a Thursday - end of Sept 2017. The tour will include: Pont du Gard, Arles, Les Baux, and Nice. I will have 7 days (following Thursday night) to get back to Paris for return flight.
      What would be a good trip? I have not seen Monaco, Antibes, Cannes, Marseilles, Aix en Provence, Vaison la Romaine. I would not mind going to Orange again. Prefer TGV rail over driving, but could rent a car for short trips.

      I'm keen to visit Villers Bretanneux while in Paris. I can catch a train to Amiens but need to be able to get to VB for a visit,then go to the Australian war memorial about a mile away. Any suggestions. I don't want to pay the E300 for a full tour of the Somme region. Driving isn't an option

      Paris with kids

      Paris Jan 13, 2017 at 6:23 AM

      Hello Paris experts ;-)

      We'll be attending the U2 show in Paris on July 25 and want to add a couple of extra days in and around the city.
      I don't yet know where we'll be staying.

      Our boys - who will be 9 and 11 by then - will be joining us. In fact it was their idea go along to a show and then our oldest one decided he wanted to see the Eiffeltower ... And what's a mum to do then but to buy tickets for the Stade de France then ... anything to keep the young ones happy (and now I can 'blame' them for the trip ;-) ).

      We'll likely arrive there around noon on friday 21st and leave for home again on wednesday 26th.

      Do any of you have a suggestion as on what kids might enjoy doing. The Eiffeltower is a must. Besides that: they don't mind a museum (as long as it doesn't take an entire day), they like history and they're not fussy about walking.
      I've read something about the sewers tour ... do you think that's worth doing with kids?

      As always: thanks for your input!

      Any must sees or must eats?

      Carcassonne Jan 11, 2017 at 6:22 PM

      We will be spending a few days in Carcassonne in May-June and have things pretty well sorted out. However, it would be nice to hear from you if you have any suggestions for things we should not miss. Also, restaurant recommendations would be welcome for Carcassonne, Narbonne, Beziers and/or Collioure.

      Thanks - this could well be my last question before VT gets the deep six.

    • Going to Taizé in May 2016

      by Anikapa Online Now Nov 12, 2015 at 10:55 AM

      Hello,

      Is there any group who is going to Taizé from 15.05 until 22.05.2016? For me it would perfect if you or your group is from Bonn/ Cologne or any other country near by. But also if you life a little more far away, i would be thankful if you write. Unfortunately it's not as easy as in holidays to find a group ;)

      I would be very happy, if anybody answers me ;)

      Greetings Anikapa

    • Is it possible to go Taize by myself from 28/12/2014 to 11/01/2015?

      by PieterWillemen Online Now Dec 25, 2014 at 7:03 AM

      Hello,

      I am currently thinking of going to Taize for 2 weeks by myself. However, I wonder the following:
      1. Is it a good idea to Taize by yourself? (i.e. not in a group?) Is it to join other people in workshops, talks, meetings?
      2. Is it possible to during 28/12/2014 to 11/01/2015? On the online registration page, it says there are meetings all year, except from 25/12 until 06/01. What does this mean? Is Taize closed then?

      Thank you very much!!!!!
      And Merry Christmas to you all!

    • other forms of transportation to Taize

      by EvelineZwikker Online Now May 12, 2014 at 2:58 AM

      Hello there,  I am traveling to  Taize at the beginning of  July and arriving and leaving on a Sunday. Now it so happens that my flight does not overlap well with the bus transfer or  train and so I have a layover of more than 5 hours. Are there any other buses going to Taize except voyage clunuysois . I guess it being a Sunday, the train and bus service is very limited.

    • Visiting Taize in June 2008

      by nichantal Online Now Apr 23, 2008 at 2:54 AM

      Hi. I am planning to visit Taize in June 2008 and this will be my first time in Europe. Is there a schedule/guiding tour for visitors during that period to which I can subscribe? How about accomodation? Is it better to stay outside the community or does the community has available rooms for rent..

      Thanks for your help, as I am really looking forward visiting Taize this summer.

      Since I am a "mature" adult, I'm wondering if older adults can attend Taize workshops or attend the chanting services offered. Also does one need to stay in Taize a certain amount of days in order to truly benefit from the experience? Thank you very much. suzanne

    • VISITS TO THE SURROUNDING AREA

      by MightyMoe Online Now May 28, 2005 at 5:06 AM

      The Welcome Team has implied that we (3) are "requested not to leave the camp" while we are staying with them...we want to be a part of the community but since this is our 1st time in Burgundy Region, we want to 'explore' our surroundings when we feel that we want to slip away in our rental car. Do you see any objections to this? was the WT's suggestion only a suggestion or do they 'frown' upon comings/goings (reasonably, of course) of the pilgrims????

      A friend and I are planning to visit taize around the 24-31st March for Easter Holidays. We have been going through loads of stress and desperatly need a break from it all. I have heard taize is a beautiful quiet place but most people have been during quiet months and did not think us wise to go for the EASTER holidays. My friend is a teacher so can only go now, has anyone been during this time? please what are your opinions?
