I happen to be taking the same TGV line (Paris -> Nantes ) this week-end during the strike!
First and foremost, you should double-check that your train is effectively cancelled (if so, you must have received a mail from the SNCF).
If you did not receive anything, you're good ! Your train departure will probably be fine.
If you've received a mail ...
I have heard countless examples of people getting multiple entry visas in other situations or even without asking for one but in principle they are intended for regular professional or family visits, not as a convenience for tourists (cf. article 24 of the Schengen visa code). It's also intended for travellers who have proved their reliability and this is ...
I suggest you travel normally as though nothing is happening but take with you a lunch bag containing water and some food...as well as a blanket in case you need to wait couple of hours in an SNCF station.
Then hop on any train heading west from Paris (toward Nates trains 1st head south from Paris). If your train departs from Gare Montparnasse then you ...
Taxis would typically be happy to do it but you might have to phone a taxi operator directly. If you have trouble finding a taxi then looking specifically for this service ("taxi longue distance") on Google turns up many results. I personally know taxi drivers who provided this service (sometimes to deliver a parcel rather than a person). Private drivers can ...
SNCF's website suggests the following alternatives during a strike:
Car rental with Avis (a traditional rental service)
Car rental with OuiCar (a service allowing private owners to rent out their cars)
Ride-sharing with BlaBlaCar (a long-distance ride-sharing service)
For the first two options, there are 10% discount offers available on SNCF's ...
Here're the possible countries, that are not part of Schengen countries, one could go with Schengen visa.
UK visa matters if you're returning back to UK after the trip.
There are no information one way or the other on the Strasbourg Christmas Market site.
Conventional Wisdom would suggest that you should be prepared to pay cash; but I would not be surprised that (most) vendors accept cards.
Worse case scenario will be to hunt an ATM.
It would depend on the total amount of liquid in the chocolates and whether the passenger could fit them into the standard clear plastic bag required when passing through security.

The third bullet is the important point.
Can I enter Germany as my first entry point now ?
It is 100% OK to enter through a different country to the one that granted your visa. This is totally normal and fine.
Are there any stamping issues associated with that during the Immigration check in on Airport?
No. You have a schengen visa and you're entering ...
Can't really answer for how to change your ticket or if you will be allowed on board with a ticket for a different train, but from Augsburg to Paris, you have the following alternatives you can still book (and thus possibly exchange your ticket for?):
Augsburg 03:57 (in the morning, or night rather) - Stuttgart 05:36 // 05:54 - Paris 10:05
Augsburg 07:05 - ...
Below the present (Friday, 6th December 2019) summary:
tickets valid until the 11th can be rebooked free of charge
but only for the same connection
it does not state how or where to do this
unused tickets can be reimbursed
no trains to or from France on strike days, which is expected to be extended
At present (3 PM) it is unclear if this strike will ...
You can travel as long as your D visa is not yet expired, or after you receive your carte de séjour regardless of whether your visa has expired. In both cases you can spend 90 days of every 180 days in Schengen countries other than France and you can also leave the Schengen area.
To travel with the carte de séjour you must carry it and your passport.
Better late than never is probably the best advice that can be given.
Since it can be done online, just do it, print out the sent pdf and take it with you.
Validate your visa
If your visa bears the mention "Dispense temporaire de carte de séjour"
You have nothing to do.
If your visa bears the mention "Carte de séjour à solliciter..."
Guadeloupe (like France's other overseas départements: Martinique, French Guiana, Mayotte, Réunion) is in the European Union. Therefore the EU freedom of movement rules apply: as an EU (and more generally EEA) national, you can visit for a short time, and you can settle if you're economically self-sufficient (to summarize the rules at a very high level). An ...
Yes you can use your visa free entry the first time and your visa for the second visit, I have done this numerous times being a Swedish passport holder we can enter once every 30 days visa free and if more I apply for a visa for the second visit.
No you cannot have two over lapping visas single entry as soon as your second visa becomes active your previous ...
Please check the explanations on this site vietnamsvisa. If you choose a single-entry visa, you are allowed to enter/leave Vietnam only once in the allocated period, after which you have to apply for a new visa.
So to answer your question: Yes, you could apply for 2 single-entry visas for your purposed trip. I don't know anything about the second question ...
I have a valid récépisse and I know this is not a valid document to
travel (back) to France
A recipissé is a valid travel document, given:
The visa you are expecting AND had allows you multiple entries to
It is an application for the renewal, and not
first application of a Titre de séjour.

The World Health Organization's website has a PDF summarizing what each country requires in terms of yellow fever vaccinations: https://www.who.int/ith/ITH_country_list.pdf
According to that PDF, France and Spain do not require (as of 2013) a proof of vaccination:
Compare France and Spain with a different country that, like France and Spain, is not ...
CDC suggests booster vaccines every ten years. Given this, and the fact that CDC doesn't mention avoiding multiple shots, I'd go to a doctor, present the case, and simply ask for a second dose and a new certificate. That is probably the quickest and most efficient way of solving this.
Inform the doctor that you have the vaccine previously, how long ago it ...
This may be quite dependent on the region and the location. Stores in northeastern France for instance used to be more restrictive on trading hours, not sure if that is still the case. The larger the city, and the more central the location, the better the chances for extended hours.
I would expect:
most to have regular hours on the 24th (or maybe close a ...
