Things to remember:
Ask for non-carbonated water. If you don't you get the tonic stuff. Yuck
Take lots of money!
Use Etap Hotels where possible. Very cheap, very clean and great breakfasts.
Go with teenagers at least once. A totally new experience to go there with 2 grandsons. A whole new perspective and I feel 20 years younger. I laughed more than I have for years. Teenage boys are the greatest.
