    I guess if you stare at a model of Hitler long enough you become Hitler.

    Ahh. I don't suppose I really thought of the north as cold but I've not been further south than Arras (in France at least). Reminds me of this Dutch girl I met in Rome who figured I'd be a sensible person to complain to about it being too hot.

    Never further south than Arras :eek: it happens to be around 30 minutes away from where I am heading to, Nœux-les-Mines (well just outside of Nœux-les-Mines)... not been to Arras though, might go this time as I have more freedom with the car and all that :cool:

    Rome hot? please that isn't hot enough

    Hehe. Well I've not really travelled in France on my own - Arras was a school trip since we were going there and to the Canadian memorial at Vimy Ridge. I've somehow managed to skirt the Hexagon by going to Germany, Belgium, and the Romandie. I'd like to go to Normandy and Brittany though but may try in the autumn rather than in the summer.

    Well it was the mugginess as well as the temperature that I couldn't really deal with. The same in Budapest, lovely as the city was.

    Well do travel France on your own, after my year abroad (if I end up in Paris) I fully intend on taking my dads car and driving down to Cannes and back, will be a great road trip as I will be able to stop at more places than when it was me and dad

    Bretagne & Normandie are nice places in the summer... everything closes on a Sunday though it is worse the further North-East you go :lol:

    Mugginess?

    I'd be at SNCF's pleasure! It's more the case of having the time to do it to be honest. Having spent 7 years doing various degrees, I need to find a job. But at the same time I'd like to get my French back up to scratch and shake off the Quebecisms that I picked up in Canada.

    So I've heard. My idea of a good trip is walking a lot, visiting sites of historic interest, and generally seeing places so in that sense sunday closing really doesn't matter. In any case, riding around on trains is a great way of passing sundays.

    Good luck with SNCF and getting somewhere on time

    You picked up Québecisms, get out :mad:

    Walking a lot, historical sites :eek: that is not a good holiday

    I'm sure they cannot be any worse than First Great Western or ViaRail who landed me in Montreal fully 10 hours late on a train that takes 24 hours anyway! That was an experience. Quebecisms and I cannot for the life of me say anything other than Bruckselle (Bruxelle). Lounging around in the sunshine is my idea of hell...
