Looking for Frederique Bach

I am trying to find an old friend from LePuy en Velay.  Her name is Frederique Bach.  I did a French exchange with her in about 1990, she would have stayed with my family in Sutton, Dublin, Ireland. 

At the time she was friends with Max Mejean, Florence and had a boyfriend called Jean.  If anyone has any information please email me.  I would really like to get back in contact with her.

How to get to Sainte Enimie (Gorges du Tarn)

I will be traveling to Sainte Enimie in September, flying out of JFK in NYC.  Does anyone know the best way to get there once I land in Paris?  Is it better to fly to Montpellier or take a train?  Once I get to Montpellier, how do I get to Sainte Enimie?  Is there some other city I should fly into, or to take a train to, instead of Montpellier?  This will be my first trip to Europe.  I am not going through a travel agency as I will be doing volunteer work in Sainte Enimie.  Any advice you can give will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

Georges Braule

I met Georges Braule on a school trip to France at Easter time in 1964.We stopped at a school in Avignon and that is where I met him. He went to do his national service in 1964 and served in the French navy. We wrote to each other for 2 years. He must be around 60+ now and I would love to know if anyone thinks they know this man

I have often thought about him and wondered what happened to him.

Thank you ………..

Public transportation in Burgandy

I will be traveling witrh my wife to France in late September.  We will spend a couple of days in Paris and then take the train to Auxerre.  From there we have to travel to Baye, on the Naivernais canal, for a week's voyage north to Mailly-la-Ville. 

It seems next to impossible to find transportation information, including costs, for travel within Burgandy.  Specifically, where can I get  bus schedules and prices for Auxerre to Baye, and for           Mailly-la-Ville to Auxerre?  I would prefer to travel by bus, but failing that, how much must I budget  for for a taxi for each trip?

Any advice will be gratefully accepted.

Long Lost Friend !

Hi everyone, just wondered if anyone could help me locate a long lost friend from France, last known area was Montellimar.

Name is Thierry Despesseux, not sure on the sir name spelling. His father was called Jean.

Last saw him in a village called Ponte Barret just outside Montellimar, his parents were teachers at the local village primary school. Thierry went to a senior school in Montellimar.

This was in the mid seventies so quite a long time ago, lol.

Any help in locating Thierry or his family would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards

Sean Chester
