Travel Journal - France

Just about every travel book on France seems to arrange its information according to different methods. Our Travel Journal for France was originally arranged according to the 22 principle Regions of France. What could be more consistent to that!

Things change, in January 2016 France reorganized the Regions and arrived at a smaller number of 13 Regions. The Regions are listed to the left.

Within each Region are Administrative Departments. They have a two digit number, and that number is shown as the first two digits of the Postal Code. So for example, Paris, with postal codes that start with 75, means Paris is Administrative Department numbered 75.

There, see how it all works together!
