Hi Dl,

You will have a great time. We have been 3 or 4 times and it gets better each time. Never been to America Disney but I believe that is in a different league. (bigger better oh please don't get me started on americans )

If you are pulled over by the police be polite and try to speak a bit of French if you can, it really helps.My advice is to learn the basics.

We have French friends from many years of visiting France one of them is a policeman and just like the british police they don't like the cocky ones (who does). If you make the effort you will have no problems at all. They don't like having to deal with the language problem any more than our police do.

Contrary to popular belief they won't stop you just because you are a Brit.

Make sure your paperwork is up to date and you will not have any difficulties.

Have a great time. (we are going again at easter)
Currently in planmeca's garage:
Renault Laguna 1.8 16v x 2 and a lot of other things. could really do with a tidy up to be honest I'll do it tomorrow
