France Travel Blog Tips and Hints:
- Make an effort to learn some French phrases; French was once considered the language of culture and politics in Europe and the locals don’t like to speak English!
- Watch out for pickpockets at attractions, particularly of items left in your car. Carry valuables with you.
- Sweets for breakfast are quite normal, so tuck into that chocolate croissant with glee!
