The best source for Galapagos travel information comes from Galapagos Islandstravellers and locals!We believe the above statement by the word. Guide books can become obsolete,hotel and vacation information can be biased, trip journals show only what atraveller has done, etc.
I am wondering if anyone has any information on the best stretch of the Loire to kayak over a 3 day period? As we will have to hire kayaks, I am aware of a couple of kayak/canoe companies and they are offering Blois to Vouvray or Le Cavereau to Amboise. Is it worth searching for other stretch of the river to kayak as the plan was to visit wineries on the trip and I cant remember if there are any there since its been 5 years since last visiting there. Thanks Robert
we want to start doing some longish walks at the weekends - so was wondering if other forum readers wanted to share their favourites. It's be nice if we could find some routes that will take 3/4 hours and with somewhere nearby that we can go for lunch, or even have a picnic afterwards?

Good Afternoon. I have some guests arriving in August who would like to go overnight carp fishing. We live near Boussac, 18 / 23 region. I would be very grateful if anyone could tell me of any good lakes they could go to for overnight fishing within a reasonable distance? Also how to book a bay on the lake and how to get a licence? Thank you
Bonsoir tout le monde, this is my first post as I only heard about Angloinfo last weekend and I've lived in region 36 for 6 years! I don't think that British ex-pats are so numerous in the Centre Region as some other areas but wondered if any, within a reasonable distance of Chatllon sur Indre would be interested in joining an Indoor Bowls Club for winter get togethers? I used to live in East Anglia, which had a long tradition of lawn bowls in summer, often in the grounds of country pubs and indoor bowls in winter in village halls. It was something that I missed when moving to France and after a chat with Le Maire of my village decided to try and introduce it in our spacious Salle des Fêtes. Over the past two winters I have invited everyone to come and 'have a go'. The Maire was very supportive, giving the fully heated Sales des Fêtes free of charge and announcing the dates at the New Year get together but although a few came to begin with it is pretty obvious that their hearts aren't in it and they are all very sweet when we meet in the village with their excuses why they couldn't make the latest session. Please don't think that I have tried to foist a British sport onto a reluctant French populace. Winter can be quite a lonely time for many in my village and I remembered how convivial the indoor bowls evenings were on the Norfolk/Suffolk borders. In the event that I can't start some sort of gathering with a British bowling nucleus ( I am still hopefull of some local French involvement - I'm sure you've noticed that they tend to be attracted by a well attended gathering) then I shall use the auspices of Angloinfo to offer all the equipment to anyone wishing to install a two carpet set up in their local Salle des Fêtes. Visit Youtube Short Mat Bowls if you have no idea what I'm rambling on about. Best regards Peter

Does anyone know of campsites around Tours which are open all year. We are doing a charity motorbike ride from Newhaven/Valencia beginning of November and need somewhere to pitch three tents on the evening of 3 November - plus there is a motorhome for the film crew - is there a special parking area for motorhomes around the area. Or has anybody got a field - money will be tight so we don't wanty to pay 5* prices. Thanks for any info.
