1 day trip from paris to amsterdam

my graduating class is taking a trip for a week in May. I want to know how much is a train ticket from Paris to Amsterdam. I have looked on Euro rail’s website but WOW really does it cost that much.

Nice to Rome with an in-between...

On my “Mini EuroTrip Summer 2009” there is a leg of the trip that i need transportation help on. We would like to do Nice and then take a ferry to Corsica. From there we want to see Capri. I GUESS we would also take a ferry there… Then, somehow get to Rome.

Is going from Corsica to carpi to Rome doable?!? I am so lost lol

I would really appreciate any help

First time - Is it true that I should only speak English?

Wassup everybody, I am going to be visiting France & Germany in a few months. It will be my first time outside America, so I have been asking all my friends about it. They all said that I should at least try to speak the language of where I am visiting, and I did get a book on how to speak French.

Au-Pair France


I am going to be an au-pair in Biarritz, France for 3 months this summer. I have a EU passport along with my Canadian passport. I was just wondering if anyone has any idea on whether I still need to get a wokring visa or not? the agency i am working with says i should be ok because its only 3 months but i plan on staying for an extra 2 weeks to travel around spain and france, so i dont want to be left hanging at the end of my trip.

Has anyone been an au-pair in France before?? any advice??

general advice: flight from California to anywhere in Europe - summer

Hello everyone!

Sorry if this is a hard question to answer – but I’ve been looking around this board and can’t seem to find a consensus that will answer my question. I’m looking for a flight from anywhere in California to anywhere in Europe for these dates: outbound mid to late June and returning mid to late July. So far the best I can find is $717 on Delta. This seems like a pretty good price – should I go with this, or does this season promise even cheaper fares for this time period??

Thanks for any help!
