"New Travel Pages and Tips" Personal Page by Beausoleil
I've added a lot of Off the Beaten Track tips and haven't listed them here. Just check Off the Beaten Track, particularly in Paris. We were there for a month and had time to really explore.
Prices on the Paris Metro went up January 1, 2015. Check Paris transportation tips for new prices. Fortunately, the Batobus didn't raise fares. The Metro is still a bargain.
On our one-month anniversary trip, we found one new restaurant that was really nice, La Bonne Excuse on rue de Verneuil in the 7th. Highly recommended.
I update things we revisit or recheck information like prices but my cue is when someone rates a Tip/Review. That sends me a notice and I then review it to see if it is up to date.
New Travel Pages:
We've revisited Paris twice and I have a few new tips there.
Spent a month in Ireland in September 2013 and I'm working on that. All the Ireland pages are relatively new.
We're home now, but we were headed to Provence with our daughters so I made up a PACA (Provence-Alpes-Cote-d'Azur) Page with information about Provence for our daughters so they could start planning. We all plan several days so we each get to do something we truly want to do. Kind of takes the stress off Mom too. I'm in the process of doing Tips on Provence . . . and updating older tips.

I am always talking about and recommending the Plus Beaux Villages of France so decided it was time to write a tip. I've posted pictures of PBV in different parts of France and a web site where you can find all 156 of them with photos.

We made a pilgrimage to the Viaduc de Millau and loved the boat trip underneath the immensely high bridge. It was an impressive experience. I put the information under Millau since it is better known than tiny Creissels where you actually catch the boat.

Someone was asking about a beautiful, non-touristy place to stay with a restaurant, bakery and some shops and in the Dordogne region of France. There are several Plus Beaux Villages but they are all wall-to-wall tourists so I suggested Daglan, absolutely beautiful with no tourists at all. Then I typed Daglan into the VT Search Window and discovered no one here has written a Daglan Travel Page . . . so I did and here it is: Picturesque Daglan in the Dordogne by Beausoleil
