    Lyon is brilliant.
    Paris I didn't mind to be honest, but the nice parts are expensive and then it tails off quite sharply in the cheaper arrondissement's.  The people are also generally rude and have that standard Parisian "up ones own arseishness" about them that major capital cities attract. Elsewhere the people I found to be very hospitable, despite what most English people say about the Frogs.
    If you find yourself on the south coast go to the smaller fishing villages and beaches rather than the major towns and absolutely do not go to Marseille. It's the khazi of Europe. Although if you find you're down that way smaller towns like Cassis and Bandol are worth staying.
    The further south you get, the amount of English speakers reduces.
    Lille and the towns closer to Belgium you get, the beer improves.
    Enjoy the food!

    I lived over there for 10 years.... my thoughts would be
    Alsace, it is great, wine, beer and food all cheap and plentiful....you wont get much chance to practice your French though....they speak a messed up version over there.
    Marseille and Paris are dumps, just don't go there, not even worth a day trip to either place.
    If you want a big city, go to Lyon, it is awesome.
    Hire a bike and ride around the country, most drivers are nice and respectful to cyclists.
    Nice isn't nice
    St Tropez is pretty cool, but not as nice as Monaco.

    Mrs is a veggie, which, by extension, almost means I am. She is a great cook and can honestly say I don't miss eating meat on most days.
    Lots of pasta, risotto, curries, salads, tagines, fish and seafood... Indian/Mexican/Levant cookbooks are good for non-meat containing recipes.
    Emphasis on the veg as the main ingredient actually gives you a new appreciation of how good veg can be, rather than a sideshow to the main event to be fair. I was never a massive meat-eater before we met anyway, but I don't miss bacon, can live without burgers... but you can't replace beef gravy or a steak, which I still enjoy from time to time.
    Genuinely think it makes you a better cook as find you get a bit lazy when you've got the flavour of the meat to get you out of jail if you happen to have made a bland sauce.
    Will get some pictures up next time I've been at the stove.

    You're more than welcome to draw off my experiences of travelling around France and I really hope it helps.
    When we were 19 my mate and I, having saved 500 quid each, decided to work our way around the world for a few years - starting with France. So we drove my piece of crap Seat Ibiza down to Dover, abandoned the car forever on the roadside, and got on a ferry. We actualy laughed when we saw that the ticket included a free return journey if it was within 5 days. We weren't coming back for 5 years or more!
    We travelled on the trains (which are excellent) first to lille, then to arras and then on to Paris.
    It was in Paris that we embarked on a huge bender and woke up the next day in a hotel called La Belge (that stank of piss) having spent pretty much every cent we had.
    Within 4 days we were back in the Seat Ibiza, ringing my brother up to pay for some petrol over the phone, and on our way home. We slept in a car park in Canterbury for 2 nights so we could at least tell our mates that we'd managed a full week.
    Anyway good luck with your experience and if you want any more advice you know where I am.

    Drivers who don't accelerate on a motorway slip road, Meaning as they attempt to merge into the traffic in the inside lane, they're not matching the speed of the vehicles already on the motorway. So as a result they are a danger to themselves, other drivers already on the motorway and a pain in the butt to the driver who as followed them down the slip road. As they too try to join the motorway safely.
