After having travelled to France so many times, I’ve accumulated many tips to save you time and money. Whether it’s your first time or 10th time in France I believe there are lots of things that you can learn from my (good and bad) experiences. They range from renting a home in France to deciding whether you should get the Paris Museum Pass. I also write about problems on the road—speeding tickets, toll roads, and roadside assistance— and how to deal with them.

To help you plan your next trip I’ve included:

  • links to posts that will help you if it’s your first time to France
  • advice and money-saving tips
  • a link (Travel Map of Posts) that will take you to a Google Map with the locations of all the places where I’ve had unique experiences or seen interesting sites in France. Click on a city and it will pop up with a link to a post.
  • links about accommodations: what kind of accommodations to consider and where to stay. That list only has places I’ve stayed at AND I recommend.
  • a link to my Past Travel Itineraries, where you can see the places I visited, stayed, and ate at. The more recent trips have much more detail because, in 1978, my first trip, my journal wasn’t too detailed. They will provide you with the routes I took and some of my most favourite experiences.
  • a link to a collection of posts that are about some unique sites to see in France
  • a link to a collection of resources that can help with your trip-planning
