Hobo Advice

This advice is entirely based upon my short visit. Therefore, I will only discuss rural parts of Southern France. Paris and things like that shall not be discussed since I have never been there.

  • Visit in a non-tourist season

  • See the Alps

  • Go to small towns instead of the bigger, famous cities

  • Indulge on local food and avoid restaurants marketed towards tourists

  • Learn some French (it will make things much easier)

  • Try cheese and wine (in this case, they do live up to the hype)

  • Go to bakeries. You will never be disappointed.

  • See medieval buildings and architecture

  • Public transportation can be expensive and confusing. Prepare yourself.

  • Go to a local open market and buy a crossiont. I know it’s stereotypical but trust me on this.
