perpignan aerport

Add to this that if one goes through 'the gate' then one can NOT return to collect luggage. This happened to me as I went to check if my taxi was there and 'Security' would not let me or others back through 'the gate' who equally had made the same mistake. This of course took nearly 45 minutes extra...

isolated internet connection

Ex-clients tried running their safari business with a 'querty' telephone connecrtion by WIFI from SFR. They found it very diffcult. Their connection from England in the office kept breaking up. However this may not be relevant to your request.

moving to France

I suggest you check out the English newspaper for France with various booklets on various subjects including Tax, Health, and buying a house.
i.e. www.ConnexionFrance.com. Tjhe booklets are under 10.00 euros.

I ended up with a department of the Mairie in Argèles owing to an accusation by my neighbours. I understand the department meets once a month to sort out neighbour arguments and other topics. It was sorted.

perpignan airport

I find it a bit bezare that there are few north of England flights when Lancaster /Perpignan was one of the first twins in this area to be established. Perhaps this connection could be put to better use to establish more flight connections all year round.

perpignan airport

Oh please let Perpignan become bigger and better for those who prefer to fly a/r from it forwhat ever reason. Easier access, preferred airline, better times and dates etc. Let's not moan and counteract all that has gone before and has been said on this subject.

airport input

I would propose more connections with Ireland i.e. Dublin, Belfast, Shannon through Aer Lingus, Ryan air, etc. All year round for both the French and Irish. As I already posted on the last flights to Dublin there were 3/4 French.
Another would be yearly connections with Manchester.

airport + flights

Hopefully extend the Aer Lingus seasonal flights from March to the end of November like the first year when they reopened their schedules. My last flight this season was full of French coming back here only 1/4 of Irish. So would help the Irish economy as well as the summer one here.

Vote for Stephanie Roche for Fifa goal of the year. She plays for Peamount Untied in Ireland just south-west of Dublin, a good football team of both males and females though not exactly Man. U or Chelsea!! Still give it a go!!

I totally agree with Tia. Maybe it is too late to actually report the incident as such but at least go to the cops and advise them of what took place.
How come there are no 'decent men (in this part of the world) '!! adding their views per usual.

English newspapers are reporting a surge in scam rental property owners. Future renters are being warned to phone owners to make sure it is a genuine property advertisement. This is being done a lot with one particular well-known property advertisers site. Cheques are being cashed etc. monies lost.
