Warning : travel to Paris

When you travel to Paris, please don't take train from airport to downtown. There are so many .... many gang crimes in train. After we left airport station, gang crime people get on the train. They were three to five people to one group around you. The whole train was full of gang crime people. It was too late to go away. I lost everything on 25 Jan, 2015.

Hostel vs. Air BnB

Hey guys,
My boyfriend and I are going to be spending a week in Paris this summer before I start my study abroad program in Angers. I therefore will have a little more luggage than I would like. Is it preferable to stay in a hostel or an air bnb? Which would be safer for my luggage? How do they compare costwise? Also if anyone has suggestions on places that they've stayed I would greatly appreciate it!

GR 20/Hikes/Beach Corsica

Hi,

We are looking into hiking possibilities on Corsica and would like to find some good 0,5 - 2 day hikes. We are not experienced hikers, but we do like some challenge and are up for anything if we are rewarded with nice views at the end. However, we prefer to do 1 day hikes so that we can relax and do something else the next day. Is there any way to do a 1-2 day etappe of the GR20 or do you have to do the whole route? Are there other possibilities we should look at?

About us: we are 26 and…
