Tips for Teens Traveling in France

As we mark our first anniversary in October (go team!), new guest poster Jennifer L. brings a different, and very welcome, perspective to Travels With Child.  Call it a young-person's-eye view.  Call it important information for parents and teens to have.  Or, do like we do, and call it awesome.
