It's my neighbor country and I've never been there, except for some place near the borders many, many years ago.

Yes - this is a country next to your and you are so different - Spaniards and Frenchmen as it seems to me.
It is very interesting.
Well... of course I also remember that Catalunians are right claiming their distinguishing from Spaniards:)
nice afternoon:)

I've never been there although I have relatives in France. My uncle went and didn't like it. Everything was expensive. Dog's waste was everywhere. He said Paris is not as romantic as it's told.

I read in the traveling magazine last time there was a tour called A Da Vinci Experience in Paris, London, and Edinburgh for seven nights and costs $1,659 per person. You'll get to, let's see (flipping the page), visiting sites from that book-- the Louvre, Westminster Abbey, historic Rosslyn Chapel and more.

Man, if I have enough money and I could go.... :cry:

Maybe Paris is dirty but I think it would be CIVIL (may I use this word?) to see dirty Paris. I would like to know why Frenchmen killed their kings at last and for ever. I mean - I think I know why but I have to compare my version with French version:)
or maybe I will go into mountains? still some time to holidays:)
nice day:)

I guess the decision wether to go or not has already been made? :wink:

Though you know it may be troublesome just now... According to my own experience paris is really nice! and romantic anyway! i regret i spend not much time there and didn't do enough shopping (actually, only perfume was bought) I wish i could come back... 8)

Personally I think that Paris should be cheaper than London.
Though who knows?
:roll:
I will go - I will compare.
If I go of course.
Cause maybe I will change my mind and do something different like going to Ireland for example. But I think in my case visiting Paris should be cheaper than visiting Ireland cause it is closer to my home. And you - the most "funny" is that while travelling Europe you can travel it in the same time you travel through Poland. Really:(. We have such awful roads here:(. I have to complain a bit.
EU help again!

i read that paris is expensive but don't forget that it's a capital and if we compare with the orthers capitals, paris stays reasonable.

Moreover concerning the clearliness I find Paris very clean, don't you?

Finally, concerning the beauty of this capital, do you know many city with a monument in every district ?

Hi nice people,
first little correction of mistakes in my earlier letter
- while writing -And you - I forgot to add And you KNOW. Without this word all sentence seems to sound really strange.

Of course I make many other mistakes but you should forgive me. I am not any native speaker.

Here I am sending you pack of pictures from Paris...
have a great time admiring them on-line...
Pictures from Paris

I would like to go to Paris and to see Mont Blanc one day. It is my dream:)

oh
i don't know the reason why all of u are so serious when talking about France
maybe that's right
because one of my friends travelled there and said that there were many dog's waste( can i say so ) :D but it is still a beautiful and civilized country
and when i was still a chid i always had a dream of travelling there .
But hearing all of u saying so i just think maybe France isn't as beautiful and romantic as i always think of it .
what is your opinion ? :?:
