I am in the middle of a five week long visit to Europe, originally set up for Spain and France. My plans call for me to take the train Mar 23 from Barcelona to Montpellier, then Lyon, then Strasbourg, then Paris, and then on Apr 3 fly from Paris to Madrid, from where I will return to the US a few days later.
I speak enough French and am comfortable enough with travel that a change here or there won’t matter. But if rail and intercity bus are affected I will be miserable, as I could not afford to use a lift service or rental car as a replacement (particularly given that I’ve already purchased tickets for all rail & flight).
Those of you who are far more experienced traveling in France, please let me know your thoughts. I accept I may forfeit what I’ve spent on the rail and flight in France, but at least I would hope to be able to cancel lodging if need be.
FWIW I am fine traveling anywhere else over those 13 days, but if France is out then I would like to start planning the alternative, too.
Thank you very much.
