StCirq - their really is no reason for you to be such an online bully. Why even post that comment? Wouldn't you just rather go about your business than waste your time?

No one said anything was a big deal.....

OK JillDavis, there is no reason to be rude to Melen.

I don't think you realize that St. Cirq is one of the gods who sits on a cloud above Mount Fodorville.

Sensible advise is sometimes not recognized as such.

My question -- truly curious, not snarky. More 60 threads / 1300 responses about the same trip. How do you even keep track of all the great advice you've received.

I know I couldn't keep all that info straight . . . .

Now I've gone and committed the sin of using the verb instead of the noun! It was obviously that extra glass of wine. Off to bed before I make another faux pas.

janisj - As a school teacher, knowledge is power and with every new post and response, I have learned something that I didn't know about before. So, every time I post a new Europe thread I am so thankful that I did. I have no regrets. I have learned to ignore the people that havent been taught the saying "if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all." It is almost like some people are the Fodors police and they keep track of things. It is so amusing to see how people spend their time. On the other hand, I have spoken to so many wonderful Fodorites as well that have been so kind. So, as in life, you will always come across people like this and you must choose how to respond.

I give back to Fodors by responding to people that post questions in the States forum since I have a lot of travel experience in my own country.

I appreciate your advice along the way Janis. Along with history traveler and Thin and countless others who respond with USEFUL information instead of non-purposeful information.

I actually love the sarcasm on this board - it fits my personality. One of my favorite sayings is: "if you don't have something nice to say then don't sit next to me!!!"

Anyway, Jill, thanks for your kind words and have a great trip and don't sweat the things that don't work out perfectly.

One of my favorite travel memories is me standing on a train platform, watching the train leave with my mother, my backpack, money and passport. Meanwhile, someone is "urging" me to enter the immigration building at the station. Germany is not the place to be if your papers are on a departing train! LOL

St. Cirq's comment was not rude,rather a helpful note to tell you to relax and enjoy Paris as it is.Serendipity is the best word to describe how the best things can happen when traveling. Sometimes there are lines, sometimes no lines. Adjust to each day's situation. You'll have a better experience in Paris approaching it that way. If you buy a museum pass, you won't have to be concerned with wasting time on lines. Walk right in to the beautiful Rodin or d'Orsay too, see Napoleon's Tomb, etc.. Paris is a beautiful walking city and hopefully, you'll have time to explore it that way.

"<i> . . . they keep track of things. It is so amusing to see how people spend their time. </i>"

Nope -- don't worry, I didn't count anything or devote any time. I've just seen so many of your threads (and posted suggestions on a few of them) so I clicked on your name to see how things were going -- and there are 3 pages of "Topic Activity" - 3 X 20=60 -- all of 8 seconds to figure that out.

I just hope (sincerely) that you aren't getting so much info-overload you are going to miss best parts of being there.

Janis....I wasn't referring to you. You have been ever so helpful! Thanks for all your words of wisdom.

In my book, there is no such thing as information overload because I pick and choose which information pertains to what interests me. It has been amazing all of the information I have gotten that I wouldn't have known otherwise.

Speaking of information, I was wondering if you knew the answer to this - can I print my tickets from home from the voyages website? The website for the man in seat 61 states this "In some cases, online tickets can be printed out at home, but not always." I am trying to go from Cannes to Nice St. Augustin.
