Hi Magali and Eric,

Welcome to the forum. A member asked questions just yesterday about cruising in France, in particular the canals, also a dream of mine. I'm sure your knowledge of the area will be a great asset to the group.

Regards

Bonjour !

La France est l'un de mes endroits préférés dans le monde. Nourriture, vin, les gens, paysage.

Salute skipmac,
Welcome to the site and great to have you aboard. How are you in translating stuff English to French? We've good pals who I still struggle to email to as my written French is just useless - and the electronic transalations they say are worse than my own efforts. I do not write to them every month, but would be great to have someone to edit my words........
JOHN

Hi Swagman,

Slight misunderstanding, Eric is the new guy from France. I'm the old guy from Florida and I can barely speak English, much less French.

But still nice to hear from you.
