1. My stay in Orleans
WeatherThe weather in Oleans can be a little bit more extreme than stated in the prologue above.
The summers get up to 32 degrees easily and the winters can get to -5 degrees.
However a 2 year stay here was surprisingly uneventful weather-wise.
HolidayWent to live on and off with my partner so I expereinced more than just a fleeting view of this wonderful city.
Places RecommendedThe city is spending an inordinate amount of taxpayer%u2019s money on beautifying the old city buildings that have long been neglected since they were bombed during the war.
The old paved streets are being re-cobbled with all the original cobbles and the tree planting is prolific with flowerbeds that are being beautifully staged on the side roads.
There are also many wonderful cafes, clubs and bars in the main city centre and along the river, and also a wonderful meat, dairy and vegetable market hall in the middle of the main shopping area.
I loved it there and have found the trams extremely useful, cheap and frequent.
