Who has been to France, precisely Paris?

There is a saying in Nigeria, which says, "See Paris and Die !"

Is there anybody in the house who has been to Paris or other cities in France ?

Lets hear from you.

For me, i don't think i saw what i expect.

I will share that soon.

I spent my honeymoon in Paris in '07, and was there again in February '09, passing through on my way to Barcelona. Spent a night.

We stayed at the Berne Opera in the 8th Arrondissment, not far from the Opera and the Galleries Lafayette (Hausmann Boulevard).

Visited everywhere basically, including the Eiffel, Champs Elysees, the Louvre, Notre Dame, and Euro Disney. There is one ride at that EuroDisney that can give you a heart attack!! The space rocket thingy.

Paris is a cool city, not so expensive, comparable with most of the Eurozone. Shopped at la Valle Village, one stop before Eurodisney. Wasn't too bad, really.

We plan to visit again for a second honeymoon sometime in the future.

i love the lord's chosen charismatic revival ministries. what god is using that man of god (pastor lazarus muoka) to do is misterious.god is indeed the god of the chosen. why pastor lazarus muoka is pulling crowd is because of the holiness he preaches. and god was with him. if anyone cares, let him or her visit the lord's chosen and find what i am saying. a trial will convince you. god bless us.

The British/French Govts operate what they call Juxtapose Border controls whereby UK Immigration officers check all Rail/Sea Port entries into UK from France and the French Immigration officers check the same routes (that includes Waterloo )into France from UK.

Who said that French immigration officers don't speak English ? The average French immigration officer speaks at least an additional language, thats why they get paid langauage allowances in addtion to their salary,the same applies too to UK immigration officers

Cool i schooled in Paris for 3 yrs. Paris is a great city and Parisians (i didnt say French) are great charming and kind people. There are a great many places to see and visit.

Paris might be expensive but there are places for everything that anyone can afford depending on da size of ur pocket.

Paris, la cite de mes reves!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, French is not my mother tongue and I'm not claiming to speak it perfectly, on the contrary. You on the other hand give the impression that you are capable of teaching French.

Get of your high horse and use English, you won't make such a fool of yourself.

If on the other hand you want to improve on your French, better find some French speakers on-line and converse with them in French. I won't be able to help you because my French isn't good enough. As you seem to be residing in Holland as well, we could carry on the conversation in Dutch, that is my mother tongue, after all.

The link is for Schengen countries. Which allows the visa to be used within those countries. The argument here is free movement within EU.

Even  British Citizens are subjected to check within Europe.

English people are pompous, they will never allow French Authority to be at Waterloo but ironically there is UK post at Paris Nord.Note French immigration officers are always uniformed, hardly speak in english.

Lets go back to the topic jare.

Within the EU there are no immigration checks for e.g if you're travelling from France to Germany or to Belgium, there are some exceptions e.g the UK still retains its immigration checks.

Regarding French immigration checks at Waterloo, that may have changed especially after july 7 but as of 2003 when i used Eurostar, French Immigration were at Waterloo while the British were at the French end and checked you when re entering the UK.

Schengen treaty

Mr Ijebu, are you saying , no immigration check within EU ?

There's mix-up in in your statement regarding french authority in Waterloo.

I got to Paris via Eurostar.

The dissapointment is their International Rail station. It does not look so. No security check(immigration et la). Out of train, then to the city straight. just like that( As at December 2003).

To be continued....

Well, to all my people out there, my mother is french and I was born in paris, the worst part of it is that I left Paris for nonsense Naija at the age of 5, I cant remember something about there except for pictures I have.

I couldnt even beleive myself whenever I c my mum in Photographs, cos I lost her 13 years ago.

The Only memory of Paris is only Photographs and some basic knowledge of the French Language. Nigerians bail me out b4 I burn out this country one day, cos anytime I look at my photographs I am always in a sad moment.

But before then, I will tell every body on NairaLand before its being burnt.

Seun, no vex for the language, its just all about expression

Paris is a wonderful city to visit, especially in summertime, but, as with most of these things, you need enough money to enjoy yourself. And if you don't speak French, you won't get the service you expect.

Don't go to the suburbs, it isn't safe and you'll get depressed in a heartbeat. Stick to the center.
