We're going in a few weeks. Feeling nervous too. But you have to weigh up the dangers and get a grip.

It's a big place. I'd go.

travailtotravel Fri 15-Jul-16 23:31:20

I would go. We cannot stop living our lives.

ABloodyDifficultWoman Fri 15-Jul-16 23:31:45

I'd go. There are few places guaranteed safe these days. France will be on high alert with extra security. Go - it's as safe now as it ever will be

QueenLaBeefah Fri 15-Jul-16 23:32:55

I'd go. Can't let the fuckers win.

I'd go absolutely. Was in Paris during Charlie Hebdo and have been back many times since. In Paris last week and going to S of France in August.
Wouldn't occur to me to stay away. But then I'm a Londoner and go on tube several days a week without worrying.

I'm going tomorrow.

What happened yesterday could happen anywhere. Which is to say I would go to France, it's a huge country

I'm going on Thursday. Driving on my own in my campervan. I can't wait to go.

Northernlurker Fri 15-Jul-16 23:40:17

I would go. I would feel anxious if going to the cities though, but I'd still go.

I'm going to France on holiday later this month

When I posted similar last April about going to Tunisia after the Tunis attack, swathes of people posted to say IWBU to think about cancelling, it was probably safer than ever etc etc.

Tell that to the people that went In June. sad

VelvetSpoon Fri 15-Jul-16 23:44:35

France is a lot safer than Turkey at the moment imo.

The attack in Nice could happen anywhere, as easily in UK as France. I don't think it would stop me going on a pre booked holiday.

Parky04 Fri 15-Jul-16 23:44:38

Of course I would go to France. Turkey though is a different kettle of fish!

Yes I would.

Anything could happen in this country at anytime. We can't stop living our lives that's what the terrorists want.

ladyjadey Fri 15-Jul-16 23:51:10

We are going in a fortnight. We are also getting married there next year. I refuse to be intimidated, that is the point of these attacks. Earlier this year I went on my own to London with the kids just after the Paris attacks and people worried. We were fine. WE can't let the terrorists stop us living, if we do, they win. Don't get me wrong, I am so very sorry about hat is happening in the world, it's wrong and awful. But we must carry on living.

Strumpetpumpet Fri 15-Jul-16 23:59:23

Yes of course. This sort of thing could happen anywhere. Unless you plan to stay in your house for the rest of your life and never venture out, I would go and enjoy yourself xx

Pinkheart5915 Sat 16-Jul-16 00:17:50

I would go Yes. This kind of attack could happen anywhere it could just as easily happen in London

My parents live in Nice and were caught up in everything last night although luckily they was both ok and they are still happy to live there. They feel safe enough to continue living there so that is enough for me to go to France.

Im still going, will be a bit nervous when we visit paris and disneyland but im sure it will be ok. This is what they want, us too terrified to even think about travelling but we need to live our lives and show them that we aren't scared. Im looking forward to going its been booked for a while now and i have been saving like crazy (spending money) so i will be disappointed if i dont get to go.

MackerelOfFact Sat 16-Jul-16 01:02:49

I would go. There are more than 66 million people in France who didn't get killed or injured yesterday. The risks of anything happening to you are beyond miniscule.

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 16-Jul-16 01:04:24

Yes I would.
