Where I stayed
From the rental agency, I have a home number and a cell number for the owner. So, I found out that to get out of the US, you dial 011 + the country code, which for France is 33 + the number. Then I had to figure out, with DH's help, that you don't dial the '0' in front of the 1 or 6. It's a 1 if it's a regular number, 6 if it's a cell phone in France, but there is usually a '0' placed in front. The cell phone number wouldn't go through at all. The home number was someone else's home! Acccckkkkk!
At first a woman answered who did not speak English. I pretty much got that she was not the person I was trying to reach, but was at a loss. I asked in French if she spoke English. Non. But she gave me over to a gentleman who did. It appears that others had called for the apartment owner there before, but that was definitely not her number.
I emailed the agency and can only hope they respond quickly!
Secondly, I had emailed the shuttle place that is supposed to transfer us from the airport to the apartment (and vice versa when time to go home) yesterday because I have not received a confirmation yet and I should have by now.
So not only am I beginning to freak out about not being able to get into the apartment, I'm beginning to freak out about GETTIING TO the apartment.
Mon Dieu! What a nightmare!
