just about packed and ready, and very excitied .... but just adjusting trip at end, which is fine as am hoping itinerary will be a bit flexible if I want to stay somewhere a bit longer. Am female traveling alone on trains. Many thanks to all who have helped. Suggestions still very welcome.
14 days in beautiful Paris from 11th Feb
fly to Barcelona 1 week
train back into France - 3 days Collioure
7 days Avignon - visting local towns
3 days Carcassonne
4 days Perigueux - day trips to Bordeaux, Les eyizers etc
3 days in Blois - chateaux, hot air balloon!!
3 days ..... was to be Rennes, but after reading reports on Rennes, am looking to change to ? Dinan, or St Malo, Mont St Michel. Will be a bit of a trip on the train from Blois (voyages-sncf site is great)
Fly from Paris 2 days later.
whatever the outcome, it will be an amazing trip of a lifetime ..... for 2 years anyway : ) cheers.
