Useful local words: 'Ça câille', '...quoi' (filler at the end of nearly every phrase), 'Ah la la la la la', oh and 'BAH OUAIS!!'.
What not to pack: Shorts and flip-flops...it's not always very hot in France.
Couldn't have done without: An openness to new things and a friendly smile.
Word of advice: Don't rely on others to sort things out for you, be a pest and make sure you get all the necessary information directly, DO NOT leave it up to someone else to get back to you on anything, only you have your best interests at heart.
