Should I stay or should I go??? (...to France)

Jump to last reply

We are supposed to be flying to Charles Degaulle on June 14. AirBnb non refundable lodging. No travel insurance on the Paris portion of our trip. I have 2 bulging discs in my lumbar spine, so it was never going to be an easy trip.

After 8 days in Paris, we were to take the train to Aix, then rent a car and do Provence and the Côte d'Azure. Return the car in Nice, then fly to Rome. After a family wedding on Amalfi coast, we were flying back to Paris for one night to get the Air France flight back to US.

In view of the floods and the strikes, should we can the whole thing? We will lose thousands of dollars, and miss our nephew's wedding.

But a nightmare experience is not something I need right now with a bad back.

We are staying in the 5th Arrondisement. I would greatly appreciate opinions from those who are there now.

Milles Mercis!
