I've always found Wunderground to be pretty useful for travel planning. You can look up the almanac data for any given day. This link has today's data for nearby Biarritz. In addition, their travel planner has the ability to look up the historical weather for a given stretch of time. This link shows an example of the data for Biarritz from October 1 ...

History. When the railways were first built in the 1840s parliament wouldn't allow them to build in the city center. The underground was the solution for how to get between one station and another (as well as how to commute in London). So historically through tickets between different companies using different main London terminii included the connecting ...

Turkey is listed by Air France as one of the countries requiring this type of information. The Air France list is slightly different from the Wikipedia list (itself based on an info page from Air Canada) but the latter does not claim to be comprehensive (“these countries include […]”). I guess this is called “APIS” by analogy with the US system and other ...

Customer Relations Team Eurotunnel UK Terminal Ashford Road Folkestone CT18 8XX They will reply within 3 working days with an acknowledgement.

In the first step you would take the email you received to the police and tell them your story. If the police in your country are looking for someone and you provide them with a good reason to believe an absconded person is in France, they will know what to do. There is a global computer network connecting police departments in participating countries; ...

I had to do the same thing. I just walked into a couple of cell phone stores in Paris - Vodafone etc and asked a young person (many of them speak English) for a prepaid SIM card that included 1GB of data. Ask them to set it up for you. English wasn't perfect but it worked. 99% of international airports have cell phone stores and more often than not have ...

First apparently this line is indeed operated with TGVs and voyages-sncf says that there is a restaurant coach on these. I found the exact menu but in French (and with bad quality graphics). In short, they offer a choice (I mean there are multiple items of each type) of hot dishes and cold sandwiches, desserts, cookies, hot and cold drinks, usually packaged ...

These TGVs have a different menu to the regular domestic French TGVs! The menu is branded as "b2in", and features the logos of both SNCF and RENFE on it: A pdf of the menu can be found here on the Elipsos site - if that isn't the exact one as found on the TGV last weekend then it's very very close to that! It largely contain the same kinds of things as ...

As Tor-Einar Jarnbjo correctly pointed out (+1), Schengen visas cannot generally be obtained from within France (or, in fact, anywhere in the Schengen area). It's sometimes (but not always) possible to apply for a residence permit from within a Schengen member state. In France, there are some exceptions (and as a PhD student, you might qualify for one) but ...

It's possible to have several visas in the same passport (e.g. an expired visa and a new one), even two unused visas with different periods of validity or back-to-back visas valid over a long period. On the other hand, I don't think consulates would generally issue overlapping visas but none of this is relevant to your travel plans. Whether you have one or ...

It's very likely that the only recourse you have here is to contact them, give them the time, date and details of what happened, and you may get an apology or some cash back. Maybe. They're contactable both by phone, and by email on their site: (+33) 03 20 40 40 40 (local call rate) Mondays to Fridays, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to ...

According to a list provided by Air France, Turkey is one of the countries that utilizes APIS. Wikipedia's list is probably just out-of-date.

On voyages-sncf, the standard booking tool does not provide a field for your "Code Avantage". However, if you go for advanced search, you will find, in the section for the passenger details, a "Promotional Code" field appearing. I know it is not straight forward.

If you go to the voyages-sncf webpage, you'll see there's a field called Code avantage. Just type your code in, and the associated discount should be applied.

Based on the end of the line, I would say that seating on the left side is best. You would be on the lake side in Nantua and Sylans. I don't recall the first part of the journey (on the LGV Sud-Est) as particularly scenic. Upper level is nice on “Duplex” rolling stock but do note that many Lyria-branded trains are in fact single level. Furthermore, since ...

It turns out it was a scam to garner money from me, what I wasn't expecting though was that my "friend" was the scammer. She was shaving her hair to tell people she had cancer She was mutilating herself to say she was agressed She took some drug to make her breasts make milk so she could say she got pregnant from rape She had proper dressing to hide her ...

I tend to use WeatherSpark to look up historical data. Their main mode is kind of interactive browser (which is fun to play with by itself), but they also generate averages reports for all places their system knows about. It's a little hard to pinpoint accurate location from your description, since Basque Country seems to more eagerly jump to Spain parts in ...

Wikipedia's pages for towns, cities and regions often include a "Climate" section which generally includes average and record temperatures, rainfall and so on. Also, I'm sure you know this but remember that the climate at the top of a mountain is likely to be very different than that at the bottom.

You'll want to see the post @Karlson linked to in his comment for all about how to get from Nice to Monaco/Monte Carlo by bus or see sncf for a train connection. In order to travel onwards to Venice you might look at going by train - since all the high speed trains seem to have been abolished on the eastwards leg from Monaco you'll have to go to Ventimiglia ...

SNCF's TGV page has a section about the TGV BAR/Restaurant which you might want to look at. They offer both snacks but also full meals - e.g. the page mentions: Several suggestions are available for a wide range of prices: Menu Bio : €11,90* Menu Gourmand (entree, main course, drink) : from €8,90 to €12,90* Menu Malin (sandwich, drink, ...

Advance Passenger Information System or APIS gets inserted into your booking either by yourself or if you booked through a travel agent. It is usually inserted for all international travel. The information used is basically your passport number, place of issue, nationality, gender, name and surname all of which can be found on your passport. I think the ...
