Happy new year from Europe
« on: January 04, 2010, 04:02:07 PM »
Some members from the French section of the forum asked me to wish you all a happy new year in North America.

Here are their posts:

If you need any help to translate what they said or will say, let me know. ;)

Let them know that we Americans also wish them a happy New Year, and that the American Mustang members are totally behind helping them achieve their goal of owning and maintaining an American Icon in the Ford Mustang.  Looks like you have some French speaking Belgians on here.   I spent a few years in Germany and frequented Belgium and France on several occasions.

I have one offer for you guys. If a Mustang enthusiast wants to go in the South of France for a few weeks, one member is ready host you at his place. ;)

If it is anywhere near Carcasonnes, France in the walled city, it would be a great treat to have a French family to host you.  The Southern France area is quite a beautiful part of their country, and a place on this earth you will want to visit before your demise.

Yes, he's at about 40 miles from Carcassonne but he says that Narbonne is much more nice, fun and not very far. ;)

It's within train riding distance in one day, so take advantage of this opportunity if you are traveling to Southern France soon.  It is absolutely beautiful country with lots of history.  The rumor is that King Charlemagne was in the walled in city of Carcasonnes, and the Spanish attacked the city.  There was a siege for a few months and the city was running out of food.  So, the king ordered that the rest of the corn be fed to a pig and that he was thrown over the side of the 3 walls that had been built over centuries, and the stomach of the pig burst open to reveal the corn.  So, the Spanish figured that the city had plenty of food, so left without  breaching the walls.  This could be fact or fiction, but that's the story. 
I spent some time in this area a few years ago, and stayed in the hotel inside the walls of Carcasonnes.  The light you see is from my camera flash, and not the sun. 
Another historical city to visit is Rothenberg, Germany.  It's another walled in city in Southern Germany.  Traveling in Europe is a unique experience, and you can get to just about anywhere by train.  You can get a Eurail pass at your local American travel agent for pennies on the dollar for what it would cost you if you bought individual tickets over there.
