Hi everyone,I am currently beginning the process of moving away from Lyon and back to my home country of Scotland.In moving back to Scotland, I do not have furniture, but just a lot of smaller homeware stuff (dishes, glasses) and clothes, and other household items like a large keyboard. I am unsure about hiring a van and driving back to Scotland solo, and I don't want to hire a removal company for a smaller amount of stuff, but I hope there might be other options. Does anyone know of any companies that might (for a good price) help me ship my belongings back to the UK? It doesn't have to be my final destination (Edinburgh) but somewhere in UK would work.Thanks for your help everyone!Helen

Greetings everyone!My partner and I are moving to Lyon in a few weeks. We will do the temporary housing thing for a couple of months, but starting July 1 we need a new appartement.We currently live in San Francisco, love the city, the restaurants, the park, the dog friendliness, etc. . .Which neighborhoods would you suggest to to find a traditional "old"-style appartement, close proximity to restaurants, parks, easy dog walking and an interesting diverse environment? The last time I was in Lyon was in the 80s and I don't remember anything -- plus the needs have somewhat changed from being a teenager to now being in my mid-40s. . .Any feedback as to what neighborhood to check out would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading!

Most American banks don't have the chip which is really annoying, I was wondering if anyone has purchased a prepaid card or a traveler's card. I'm only in Lyon for 5 months so a bank account is an option but I was hoping I could find something easier.    any suggestions?

Hi we have broken down in Lyon on a Valentine's / 20th Wedding Anniversary weekend away, and need to get the car back home to Libourne (or somewhere close). Can anyone help.  Our insurance covers getting us back  home, but not the car.  Any suggestions or referrals will be very welcomed. Thank you in advance.

The Foreign Affairs Committee is conducting an inquiry into FCO Consular services. They “want to hear from as many people as possible who have had to seek help from a British Embassy, Consulate, or High Commission when travelling. Whether you had a good or bad experience, we’d like you to tell us about it”.  To facilitate this the Committee has started a web forum to receive users views and is open now until 11 February. It can be found at: http://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/foreign-affairs-committee/news/consular-services-web-forum-launch/  FCO Consular is keen to support participation in the web forum and encourage people who have used our full range of services as they consider all feedback to be valuable.

Hi. My name is Paul and I have just moved back to France after being away for the last 12 years. I am trying to get all my paperwork sorted out but am being asked for my carte de sejour. I can not make them understand that I no longer need one and that my passport (Irish) is all the ID that I need to work here.  If anyone can tell me where I can get something on the internet to print out and show them or has any other ideas that may help me I would very much appreciate it.    Paul.

I wondered if anybody knew of a driving school with any english speaking instructors that they are able to reccomend? I'm based down near Vienne but easy to get into Lyon with teh train. Many thanks Phill
