Any general advice for traveling in France? I'll be in Bordeaux and Paris for 2 weeks for a conference and a little sight seeing. I've never been to Europe, and I speak no French.
My conference is all in English and pre-booked so that shouldn't be a problem. I do have to get myself a train ticket from Bordeaux to Paris on a Friday, but I imagine this will be pretty easy. I've also called up my banks and I have most of the financial stuff squared away.
Anything I need to see? Any advice for not getting screwed over?
