Snaking

Struggling to break through the language barrier? Maybe we can help. Heard, seen or said something that made you giggle? We'd love to hear about it.

Snaking

Just out of curiosity, I looked up the web page for the Ibis Styles hotel which has just opened on the northern fringes of Port-Vendres.

It offers both a bar and a snaking, which seemed briefly like a fun new amenity until I realised that it was just "snacking" mis-spelt. What is the language of Molière coming to when people can't spell basic french like that?

Incidentally, it's €85 and up for an excellent view of the Lidl car park. Though in truth you could do worse: PV isn't overstocked with tolerable hotels. Though I hope for myself that I never need one again.
