So, I'm splurging on a Christmas gift for myself, and will be coming to Paris (for the first time ever!) for the last week of December. I'll be pretty much staying put in Paris the whole week, with maybe one day trip if time and whim permits.
And THAT means, I will be in Paris on New Year's Eve. And so I'm trying to figure out what to do with myself that night. However, so far all I've seen for ideas is to either stand in the crowd at Trocadero and watch the light show at the…
was required to get some pills after doc visit. went to a local pharmacy handed in the prescription the order taker simply sat down to a terminal typed in some info. behind her a vending machine simply popped out the order. no waiting for 20mins first time I had seen that.

We arrive with Turkish Air at Terminal 1 at 10:25am and depart with Air Canada from Ternminal 2A at 1:05pm. I am having trouble understanding how to get from Terminal 1 to 2A as it looks like there are 2 separate shuttles involved, but I am not sure how they work. Could someone explain the procedure and also what to expect in the way of passport control and immigration. Usually we stay in a transit area when changing flights but I assume this will not be the case as we have to go between…
Hiya! BF and I are traveling from Paris to Porto and will save a good amount of cash flying out of Paris-Orly vs CDG. Is it relatively easy to get to Orly from the city of Paris? Looks like it's about a €40 taxi or so? How much travel time would you recommend we allot?
Thanks so much for any advice!
My wife and I will be traveling to the Pyrenees/border region of France and Spain this coming June and we're seeking some advice on where to visit. I'm an old hand at the Balkans/Eastern Europe/Turkey/UK and I've spent a good deal of time in Spain, but France is a big mystery to me.
As it stands, we're planning to start out in Barcelona. We've both been there before, but because we're coming from Washington State, we're thinking about very likely staying two nights so as to get over jet lag…
I have just checked into an airbnb flat in Pantin, France. My wife doesn't feel safe here - definitely a rougher area of the suburbs of Paris - my mistake for not doing a better job researching the place to see if it was a good fit for us.
I am now looking at a couple of other locations in the surrounding area. Can you please throw in your two cents about the areas of:
Particularly about safety and cleanliness? Any help you can offer…
I like adventure travelling (like walk/hiking/trekking) and prefer to visit less populated places and like to be close with nature (except some iconic places like Eiffel tower etc). I am starting from London and planned to spend 1~2 day in Paris.
Could anyone please suggest some other good places to visit during my 8-10 days holiday in December (from December 24 to Jan 2) in France and or Belgium. Thanks
I will be coming from Barcelona and have a couple of days to spend in one city in the south of France before heading to Paris. Which is best out of Montpellier, Marseille, Aix En Provence or Nice or another city if you reckon it is better (=
I am a 19 year old Australian by the way.
I arrived in Paris a couple of days ago and notice that practically all the stores I've seen have autumn fashion (makes sense of course because it's autumn!).
However since I come from the Southern Hemisphere I'd love to find some summer clearance stuff if it's still out there. Can anyone recommend a good shopping area for this. I don't want designer but I don't want cheap chain store stuff either. Good quality women's wear. TIA.
