  1. Re: Beneath Paris’ City Streets, There’s an Empire of Death Waiting for Tourists

    Yeah, we were going to see it some years ago but it was teeming down with rain and the queue meant we would have been standing in the rain for a long time. So we got back on the tourist bus and went...
  2. Re: le Viaduc de Millau - the tallest bridge in the world

    After our first short 3 week visit, we learned that all you had to do was to attempt to speak French and then they would know you were an English speaker and had at least attempted their language....
  3. Re: le Viaduc de Millau - the tallest bridge in the world

    It's even more impressive when you see it in Millau. It was one of the items on our bucket list of things to see last time we cycled in France. Although we couldn't cycle over it (it is a motorway),...

    Re: John Lennon

    I remember what I was doing when I heard about his death. I was listening to the radio.

    By coincidence, I was doing the same thing when I heard about Diana's death. Eerie isn't it?

    Re: No fences in Europe

    We noticed the same when cycling through Middle Europe. I think many farms in France did not have fences as they grew crops instead of animals. There were some fields with fences and gates but...

  11. Re: How often do you sign another contract with ISPs, power companies etc?

    I've told Spark to stop pestering me to do this. I want fibre as my next upgrade, not an interim wireless. I also don't think 4G covers my area of town.
