How do the French do it?
Careful! If May is that delightful weather and time of the year, it is also known as the month when French people have the most public holidays and do take breaks for extended weekends. As a consequence, prices for accommodation and tickets surge around the 1st, the 8th and the 30th of May… You’ve been warned 🙂
