Website fail: Nice Tourism

It's nice to travel to Nice, but can be confusing when the websites aren't working well...

For example, I clicked on the Restaurants tab for "Nice Cuisine" (traditional cuisine for the area) and the page returned a search result with no listings.

I did not do a search, and yet the Restaurants page only brings up "no results" on it's page.

Fortunately, it's not hard to find a good "traditional cuisine" restaurant in this area! :)

jeanbouteille.fr = "I have 1 bottle"

Only available in one store, I hope this product/concept will spread quickly throughout France, and perhaps move Westward to the United States.

Called Jeanbouteille.fr, which stands for "I have 1 bottle" in French, the concept is where you can refill this specific bottle with wine, olive oil, vinegar,  juice, soda and beer.

 Not only using quality, bio, products, it's good for the environment by reusing glass bottles.

Okay jeanbouteille.fr, bougez vers nous!

Treasure Hunts a reality in France

As read in my favorite English newspaper in France, The Connexion, there are specific rules over ownership of hidden or buried treasures. Basically you are entitled to 1/2 of it with the owner (if it's not on your property). This article was prompted by a discovery of 16 bars and 600 coins builders found while working on a project. The value is €900,000. 


Not only is this good information, but I doubt we'd read these kinds of articles in a newspaper in the United States. So much of the USA is already dug up, stories of buried treasure I think must be at least 100 years old.
