I'm a citizen of the world- a global gypsie. As an Entrepreneur I travel for work. My passion as clock artist takes me to quaint places for inspirations. My travels have taken me to remote places in Europe and US. Being from India traveled in Asia as well.
India you can do 100$ or blow 1000$. Stay in decent hotels. Use Yates.com or MakeMyTrip.com to book your hotels. So u can budget before you go. Food n local travel is cheap. So u can rough it with 20 25$ per day almost 10 years ago
We're traveling to Paris in August and have been told the French don't like tourists who don't speak their language. Is this correct?
If you don't speak a work of French may be an issue. If you learn to greet and attempt to speak french (even if you know just 10 words) they will ask you if you speak English and help. If not they shrug shoulders and walk away. almost 10 years ago
I'd use any web booking sites. Like Www.hotwire.com if u want to pay 20$ more for knowing the name then expedia or Travelocity almost 10 years ago
