Subject: Mailing gifts home / special Paris lunches
Hi Ziners,

Do any Ziners have experience mailing purchases from Northern Europe to home? I'll be in the Baltic Region in June and have been thinking that it might be easier to have items sent directly from shops rather than hauling them on board the homeward flight. We'll be in these countries: Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Sweden, Germany, Russia. How reliable are the services, if offered? How long will it take for packages to arrive?

We end in Paris for a few days so, as we wander down the Champs Elysee, we will be looking for a place for lunch. Can anyone recommend an intimate bistro on a street off the Champs? Have been to Paris so many times and have never stayed in this area, so it's new to me for food.

Any and all suggestions will be welcome. Lucy, Toronto
