Changing Trains in Paris

If you are travelling by train to France this summer for your camping holiday then you may find you need to change trains in Paris. An excellent website which tells you how to do this is :

The excellent rail service in France with trains taking you in a matter of hours to the South of France (journey time London to Nice is now about 6 hours !) is definitely worth considering among your travel options.

Motorhoming in France

If you are looking for some excellent places to stop for one night while motorhoming in France then have a look at the sites mentioned in http://www.france-passion.co.uk/

They are situated all over France and included places such as farms and vineyards.

The only requirement is for you to use Aires (motorway stopovers-see book below) to empty your septic tank and fill up with water as the France Passion sites do not offer these facilities.  And another “requirement” which I am sure you will willingly take part in is to buy and try out the local produce and specialities of the area.

Learning French

In my French class today we listened to the “France Facile” ie “Easy French” news !
The website is http://www.rfi.fr/lfen/statiques/accueil.asp
Its an excellent site. Apart from anything else it gives you a very extensive understanding of news events. However its also possible to look at the script of what they are saying, so that you can follow the French. So now we should all be able to hold a discussion about current affairs in French when we go on holiday !
