Hello everyone!I was hoping to get some advice for the best family and expat friendly ski slopes not too far from Paris for a quick weekend trip. Nothing too fancy or expensive-ideally just easy enough for beginners to handle (me and the kids!) but challenging enough for others in the family (hubby), no crazy see or be seen apres ski atmosphere needed (Chamonix?) just a relaxed, fun and nearby resort (that last drive to Germany almost killed me) would be great!Any advice from my Expat forum friends would be very much appreciated! : )Kiki

Less than one week to go! Does anyone know if any bars will be opening specially to show the games - some of them will be on pretty early in the morning so I am a bit doubtful! I know they will all be shown on French TV but I prefer watching in a bar as the atmosphere is much better. Thanks

Trampoline for sale. 4.6 meters (15 feet) in diameter. 125 Euros. Ready to go today. My children have enjoyed this for 2 years. Better than a babysitter.

outdoor ping-pong tables in Paris Hi, I could not find a list of places with public, outdoor ping-pong tables in Paris. I know there are tables near the Luxembourg park and near the Gare de Lyon. I thought there were a lot more tables in little corners of squares and minuscule parks in Paris? Was I wrong? How about in the suburbs? And just to confirm, what is the etiquette? Are you supposed to wait for as long as it takes if someone else is using the table? Thanks.

I am taking a very special lady from the Uk to Paris for her first ever visit to this city and am looking for recommendations for what to do to really impress her and make her first visit memorable. She is a real Romantic and is excited about going to Paris with me ( we have only recently met so it is an ideal date), we are in our forties. She plans to get the Eurostar from London and meet me at the Station (under the clock probably - lol!) We plan to spend an afternoon, an evening and then the next whole day in Paris and the only criteria so far is that she wants to visit Paris' most famous landmark , The Eiffel Tower.Now I thought maybe perhaps the Eiffel tower on the first afternoon and perhaps Montmartre and Sacre Coeur that evening ? I remember about 10 years ago going to a Restaurant in Montmartre called La Mère Catherine, and then sitting on the steps of Montmartre as the sun was going down with my now (ex) wife. That is all I know of Paris !So, I would love to hear your recommendations for ;-A nice hotel , affordable not too expensive, but not a back street dive either, and preferably near a metro station ! Where to take her ? ( she is just as happy walking, along in a nice area as she would be visiting any of Paris' attractions ) , so much to see in such a short time ! But as I don't know Paris where would you go for Romance and to get a taste of this exciting City ?A Restaurant recommedation for the first evening ! Romantic but typically Parisien please ! Any advice, help to make this special would be much appreciated and we plan to go in July !! Thank you in advance

I'm looking for other similarly qualified players for weekday singles or doubles play at municipal courts in Paris, especially in the 17th arrondissement. Court fees are cheap (7.50 euro/hour) and I can make all reservations online. I enjoy playing tennis for fun & fitness. I'm not very proficient. Also, I speak very little French.

I've read the articles on Angloinfo regarding registering a caravan in France, but wondering if anyone has any practical information. I live in Yvelines, near Aubergenville and am trying to register a 1995 Abbey caravan.I need to get a Certificate of Conformity from Alko (I think, as they are the chassis maker although the caravan is an Abbey). I am struggling to find contact details for Alko in order to request the certificate - any ideas?I will also need a local caravan repair centre to carry out the required alterations, gas pipes, lights etc and also to do a service - any recommendations?I would love to hear from anyone who has been through this process, especially with an older van. Feels like I am banging my head against a brick wall at the moment.

Hello all! I've started up a new running group in Paris, Paris Fit, and we've just finished our first training season. More than 30 or our members have trained for and completed the recent Paris half-marathon and marathon. We are a marathon and half-marathon training group designed for runners of all abilities--from beginners to advanced. We are an English and French speaking group (and plenty of other languages as well!) welcoming people from different countries. Paris Fit is dedicated to creating an enjoyable, non-intimidating, and motivating training environment that allows each member to successfully accomplish their goal of 21k or 42k. You don't have to be a runner to join us--only a positive attitude is required. Anyone is welcome! A new official training season to prepare for the Paris half and full marathon in 2012 will begin in October. Until then, we are organizing various runs and training for other races. Come out and join us! Even if a marathon or half-marathon sounds a bit daunting, we start out small and let you get there at your own pace. Find more information on our website: www.parisfit.net or on our Facebook page. You can also join our group on Facebook or Meetup to interact with other members and get updates on upcoming events. If you have questions or comments, post them here or contact me at info@parisfit.net.

Just discovered this site and for what I have seen here so far, I'm pleased with the happy accident. Its also my last hope to find a pub or bar in Paris that would be showing it live. There's got to be some place out here that holds some love for this English game.

GREAT weather spare a thought before picking every spring flower you see - bees and bumblebees are in need of their nectar after the rude winter we have had - always alarming to see Parisians leave the forests around Paris with carboots full of spring flowers.

Hi I wonder if anyone can help. I have recently moved near Aubergenville from the UK and have brought my caravan with me. It is currently sat on my drive and I understand that I need to have it registered in france before I can use it over here? Does anyone know where I can get it registered?I am also looking for somewhere to store my caravan as it is very difficult to get it on or off the drive. Are there any caravan storage places nearby or does anyone have some land that they would let me store the caravan on for a fee?I am also looking for any caravan shops near Aubergenville?Many thanks...nice weather is making me want to get ready for some exploring!!
