    I am preparing a next round of blog posts based on my France vacation in July 2014.

    Please let me know, if you would be interested to ask questions or comment on these topics:

    – Paris – apartment living on active Rue de Lappe (near Bastille)

    – Driving in France (130 km/h) and Spain (120 km/h). Can you “turn on red” in France? – Note special blinking yellow arrow. Diesel is called Gazole in France.

    – Food in France and Spain. France: Meat and cheese are everywhere – tough choices for vegans. Spain: “Patatas bravas” – it is fried potatoes; Fresh fruits as a desert is common in Spain.

    – Booking.com – your perfect ally – We booked on the mornig of day of arrival in accordance with our plans for that day. There are plenty of options for under €100 a night

    – Credit cards (MC, Visa) with a chip, but without a pin are OK. American Express is not widely accepted. Swipe or insert the card

    – French words and phrases on your iPhone
