Walking: 2021!

Best wishes for the New Year to all Walkers! I am thinking of restarting walks in March, depending of course on the Covid situation and rules in place by then.  Please let me know if you would be interested.

Driving Licences and Import Taxes

I know many of you have already applied for your French driving licences before Brexit.  A couple of the rules have slightly changed since 1 January 2021 and I attach the details as to what is now required which I hope you will find useful.
With the help of Rick the  EU taxes and other Charges is now in PDF format which I attach as many of you were interested.  Wendy has now sent me some information which shows the additions on an item costing under E80,  she said:
” My husband had a package delivered this week- it was necessary to pay €22 in TVA ( on something costing €77.95 ) + 17.50 in charges for tax collection by the delivery company. This might be useful info for members.”
Thank you Wendy, it gives us an idea of what we will need to pay on items ordered from the UK.
That’s all for the moment, keep safe,

The following pdf files open in a separate tab.

Tinsel! It must be Christmas

You wouldn’t be able to tell from the weather that it is winter.  You couldn’t tell from the bars and restaurants that it is Christmas, they are all closed! 

Vous ne pourriez pas dire d’après le temps que c’est l’hiver. On ne pouvait pas dire aux bars et restaurants que c’était Noël, ils sont tous fermés!
