Won't this be a bit confusing?

Nope. If you read through the posts it's obvious which refer to which subject. And it'll be obvious in future, even in the unlikely event that two holidays are discussed at the same time, because conversations are multi-linear in nature. So if you want to talk about Frankfurt, for example, just quote the post/person you're addressing. Simple, easy.

I feel like I'm less likely to get a result of people answering my question as people don't see straight away if it's somewhere they've been before, instead they have to trawl through the thread to find out where people are asking about, which some won't want to do. But oh well.

Lucky Charm are you working there if you are away for that length of time?

I've been to most of these places travelling by car with my husband but it was a few years ago now. All I can say is that as you can speak french go into the back streets to eat/drink and don't sit in the "tourist" places as you will get ripped off. South of France can be terribly expensive.
France is a lovely country and we have spent many holidays touring. We always used to ask locals where to eat (I can speak some French but not fluent) and we found some amazing places to eat. We always found the French very friendly if they saw you were trying to speak their language would help you in the supermarkets etc. to get what you wanted.
Have a great time - wish I was going back but it is too long a journey for us now from Edinburgh by car so we always fly to places now but you can't get into the little country places the same as you could by car.

Yeah I'm working as a language assistant in a French primary school. I'm very excited :D .

Unfortunately I won't have a car :( can't afford the upkeep on an assistants salary and anyway my driving is awful. I will have to do lots and lots of walking, or b*y a bike!

Congratulations, Lucky Charm that is an excellent job to get. The French love the Scottish people so I am sure you will enjoy the work. You are young so I would get a bike and get out into the lovely countryside when you are there. A french baguette, some pate or cheese and of course some wine - and the world is your oyster!!! o/

Holiday ideas for beginning of September?

#19 Post by Beate » Wed Jul 29, 2009 6:46 pm

I have taken the first week of September off which is the one with the Bank Holiday Monday and I have to go away so we can get a bathroom renovation - has anyone got any clever ideas? The English weather is not too brill at the moment but then we aren't beach bunnies anyway, and I am not sure I want to experience the delights of Ryanair again to get anywhere. I need cheap-ish but with culture please, no club holidays in Ibiza for us! I thought about Bruges but apparently there is not enough to do for a week, and Scandinavia, which I would love to do, might not have good enough weather in September?

Still think Belgium is good idea. You could go to Ghent or Brugges and Brussels itself has lots of interesting places to go.

Me though, I would go to Poland, lots to see, cheap and cheerful there but you have maybe been there a lot already?
