Maginot Line bombs are sweet though!
But yeah, um, safety first!
I would highly recommend contacting locals, they'll know the language, laws, locations, dangers, etc. That's a good idea even in your own country! There's an international forum on here where you could ask for contact info, or you could try seeking out websites and forums in the area you plan to go.
Be aware that there may be certain local attitudes and customs that color how you should ask about exploring. For example, in both Minnesota and France, asking for a tour of the best stuff will get you laughed at and/or directed to joke locations. Being respectful and open-minded to what locals are willing to show you is good. Even if they want to take you somewhere you find boring, they could be sizing you up to see if you're cool enough to see the good stuff.
