Lebara is sometimes tricky due to some 3G thing depending on your model. If you are open to Vodafone and Orange, even though they are more expensive, maybe they would be a solution...

Generally speaking, TGV tickets are bound to a specific train connection. Higher fares (pro ticket) allow free exchanges and refunds but I think you are still supposed to do it prior to boarding (even a few minutes before, traditionally with dedicated machines in the station's concourse but there is now a mobile app as well) rather than just showing up in ...

You cannot. I was doing a study abroad in France with the same visa and an OFII stamp associated with it. I was specifically told by the Consulate in Atlanta that I had a leverage of 5 days either before or after the official duration of my study abroad program. Thus, legally, you do not have permission to stay in the country after the exchange program is ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

I actually ended up buying the sim card from LEBARA on Amazon (I am not affiliated with the seller nor Lebara compary in any way). Despite what says on the package, you CAN activate it from outside of France. It was a rather easy procedure using the internet, you can also top up and buy some Internet and/or voice bundles on their website. There is an English ...

Assuming you went by train (I'm not sure if the same rules apply to the car-train) you should be entitled to 25% refund if you were between 1h and 2h late at arrival, according to the European Rail Passenger Rights. That website also states you should claim that refund from the railway - many have some online forms for that, Eurostar has information here. ...

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 ...
