I am rewarding myself with my first-ever trip to Paris, the last week of December - which means I'll be there for New Year's Eve. What's the best way for me (and the conditions below the fold) to ring in the New Year? [more inside]
We're contemplating a short family trip to Brittany between Christmas and New Year, but have no cultural context for how shut down rural and small-town France is likely to be at that time of year. [more inside]
I'll be in the 11th in Paris in a week. I hear there's top shelf yums to be had there. Who's had them? Where should I has them? Bonus for good bars (not too swanky, not crowded, not loud, not smoky).
What should I do/see during my two month stay in Vannes, France (Brittany)? [more inside]
I have never traveled outside the U.S. and am terrified about this specific part of the trip. I anticipate being at least a little jet lagged when I arrive, so I want to make sure I have a plan in place. Advice?
Your recommendations, please, for eating out in Marseille. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. Panisses at l'Estaque to moderately fine dining. Any kind of cuisine—doesn't have to be bouillabaisse. A bit of an explanation for what's good about the place you're recommending would be great. [more inside]
I'm traveling to France this September with my mother and we're going to be there during the Fête de la Gastronomie, which is great! Except that I don't know what we should do or how we should do it. [more inside]
Am looking for recommendations of a house or other no-shared-walls place to stay, in Paris and/or surrounding area. It's key that we rent something like a house because my 1-year old screams loudly at night and we don't want to disturb neighbours (has happened in the past, in a hotel). More below! [more inside]

inertia and I will be spending a week and a half in Paris at the end of May. I’ve read the relevent wikitravel and tripadvisor pages and I’m familiar with all of the main tourist attractions. But we’re not sure what we should go see. She’s been twice before but I’ve never been. Give us all of your off-the-beaten-path Paris-related travel recommendations! [more inside]
In late May, I will spend a week with my family in Italy (Rome, Florence, Venice) and then I'm going by myself to the Loire Valley to gawk at castles. Where should I stop for a day or two in between: Nice, Marseille, Lyon? [more inside]
We are finally going on our (rather belated) honeymoon, and we've decided to spend several days in Paris and the Loire valley. I think we've got the Paris bits down, but don't have a whole lot of info on the Loire area - can you help us? Oh yeah, and we're going to do it all by bike. [more inside]
I'm going to Paris this week. I need a haircut. Something fashionable. I barely speak any French. Where should I go, and how do I handle the language barrier without leading to a terrible haircut or uncomfortable situation with the stylist?

A friend of mine may be spending this summer interning in Paris. I'd like some help with helping her plan the best summer internship ever. Snowflake details inside. [more inside]
I've always had luck picking the brains of the well-traveled Meta-fites! I will make this as short as possible. We have 4 or 5 days to split between Besançon and Colmar, France. However, I am not having much luck finding useful information. I've heard that Besançon is less touristy and that Colmar is beautiful. If any of you have been in these cities, I would appreciate hearing your opinions on the experience. Basically, which of the two options should be the longer stay?

This April we're going to Reunion Island (South Indian Ocean, SW of Mauritius). The good thing is that it's well off the beaten path for US tourists. The bad part is that it's well off the beaten path for US tourists, so it's somewhat more difficult to research than most destinations. I'm looking for recommendations and advice. [more inside]
