Excellent Motorway Travel and Traffic Sites

There are some excellent sites for travel information in France. They allow you to print route itineraries and also some let you plan which service stations to stop at en-route.

The Society of Autoroutes http://www.autoroutes.fr/accueil.html

From “Autoroutes du Sud de la France” ASF there is a website for routes to and within the South of France: http://www.asf.fr/control/index.aspx?alias=Internet2007Anglais.home

The North and East of France has the organisation “sanef” which has this website : http://www.sanef.com/fr/index.jsp

For Paris and Normandy Routes http://www.sapn.fr/index.php

Has anyone else found any better sites, particularly covering the West of France ?

Counting Down to Summer !

wine at twilight at the campsiteAre you counting down to your summer holiday already ? Have you counted the number of days and hours ? What are you looking forward to doing ? I’m looking forward to that moment when you can sit back in the evening with a glass of wine and listen to the quiet campsite around you with sounds of birds and the sun setting. I’m also looking forward to reading some of the books I havent had time to read so far this year. And I’m looking forward to a bit of sightseeing and making plans for where to visit this year.

What about you ? Have you managed to get your holiday booked up and what are you looking forward to ?

Volcano

Volcanic Ash cloud

Well its not a strike this time but volcanic ash of all things, which is being carried in the atmosphere from an erupting volcano in Iceland ! This has stopped flights today from the UK and some of Europe until 7 tomorrow morning. However it looks like the delay might continue. So if you are flying in the next few days you will need to find out more from your airline.

Looking for a good restaurant in France ?

This is an excellent site which has reviews and ratings as well as price range for restaurants in each area of France. So get planning for your holidays !
“avis” is French for an opinion and you can see restaurants which have been rated by a lot of customers so the reviews should be pretty genuine. Certainly the reviews for the restaurants we have tried seemed pretty accurate.
Bon Appétit !
