We just returned from a 12-day trip from France. Leading up to it I peppered this forum with many questions. The responses were always insightful, thoughtful and generous. We greatly benefited from it. This trip report is paying it forward — my thanks. Here you will find our impressions, our opinions. Hope you find them of use during your trip. The observations below are from an American’s viewpoint)

Mobile Phone in France
- Having a phone with data plan is definitely handy. Whether it is for driving/walking directions or looking up restaurants or train schedules or any number of other things.
- If you have an unlocked phone you swap out your SIM card with a French one (currently 40Euro gets you an ample data plan for 2 weeks).
- Download maps of areas you plan to visit before your trip. That will save on the data usage.
