Going to France and Belgium today. It's been a long time since I've visited the mainland.

Re: language
I used more than usual, but I ended up chickening out most of the time. I'm too shy! I will work on building up my confidence for next time. :)

Going to France today, myself, from Barcelona, via absurdly overpriced rental motorcycle. Should be fun!

I'm not a motorcyclist, but that sounds like a blast.

I'd love to visit Barcelona, that's on my list of cities to see soon. Perhaps this year if I'm lucky. :)

Barcelona did not quite meet my expectations, though I'd still say it's worth a visit.

Corsica, however, greatly exceeded expectations. Incredible scenery and roads, and some of the local food is excellent. Wild boar stew, the cheeses, the seafood, the right bottles of wine. All great.

Merci, it was fun, if brief. :)

I probably wasn't that far from you.

Both in one day?

Never made it to the mainland back on my London trip in '90. I made it to Ireland and Scotland, though.

Have fun!

Yes, well we just nipped a short way across the Belgian border. :)

I've still never visited Ireland or Scotland, hoping to change that soon!

Ah, the lives of the jet set -- crossing paths all around the globe! ;)

Enjoyed your France post, I recognized a lot of it as the Loire Valley and Normandy is where I've travelled the most in France. Where in Belgium will you be? I love Antwerp, Bruges, and Ghent.

Ah yes, such a hard life. ;p

Maybe one of these times we'll actually get to meet in person. Let's say, New Delhi, sometime in '08? :)

We'll be in Namur for a weekend of international intrigue (read: dorking out boardgaming with a broad international contingent), and possibly Bruxelles for a day, since we'll be so close.

I wish! We only briefly went over the Belgian border, fueled by a quest for beer. :)

If you fly over, taking you to France and Belgium is the easy part. ;)
