I've asked this question before. The response I got was to check the school schedules. I did...man it is so confusing. Too many countries, too many schools. PLEASE HELP: This will be 15 yo DD & my 1st trip to France & DLP. She turns 16 in March 2010. As I understand it, 16 is legal to drink alcohol in France. Is that correct? She has diabetes & so, I'd prefer she see's how her body reacts while she's w/ me. Instead of @ some school party w/no adults. So, from April on, when is the best time to visit. I'm trying to give her a great experience, but need to do it rather inexpensively. So, off season & cheaper flights is prefered. But, don't want to freeze to death either. Thank you for all your help. Also, any hotel or hostel tips for Paris & then near DLP. Also, if you could recommend a really good travel book.
