When You Gotta Go...

When you're out and about in Paris and you need to "use the facilities," it's not always easy to find the nearest public loo.

Blessed relief is here! Now, no need to cross your legs in agony any more-- there is a website dedicated to listing all the public restrooms in France, Switzerland and Belgium. Geopipi gives all the details, from cleanliness to price, to handicap accessibility.


Fabulous, especially for anyone with a BlackBerry. Fortunately, Geopipi will soon be available on GPS.

This is great news! 'Geopipi' is perfect, isn't it? Love that zesty, breezy French way with words.
Btw, I'm a new fan of, and subscriber to, your blog. I make it to Paris two or three times a year (will be there in March,for example), so I'm always on the lookout for fun and informative sites such as yours. At first, I thought your blog was authored by Polly Platt, but that was before I actually visited it! Bonne continuation.

Hi Laura,
Glad you like the blog. Geopipi is such a great idea. Maybe should get published in booklet form for Paris!

Also - I'm not only a great admirer of Polly Platt, but have been her copyeditor for her next book. Stay tuned!

The Australian one (available both in paper and online) was created in 2001:

I used to work down the corridor from the people responsible!

Anne,
Thanks for that link. Perhaps a worldwide database is in order! I just found this link to new potties in NYC - I like the graphic!

There's something similar in at least one part of London. It's being called SatLav.
