Don’t Forget About the Journey!

To get to our destination, we first had to drive to Oakland to catch our flight.

Yes, that is a Rolls Royce engine!

Our plane took off at 8:00 PM Pacific Standard Time, and we could only watch one movie before we had to sleep so that we could stay awake the next day.

Once we landed in London, we took a train to the St. Pancras Station.  The cool thing about this was that it was right next to King’s Cross Station, and if any of you know anything about Harry Potter, you’ll know that this is where Platform 9 3/4 is.

So, naturally, I had to go and check it out.

After that, we headed back to St. Pancras Station to catch our next train, the EuroStar.

Travels up to speeds of 170 KM/second (110 mph)!

Now, the EuroStar is no ordinary train. It runs underneath the English Channel, connecting England to France. So, you can start off in London and pop up three hours later in Paris. It was a long process to find a car to take us to our hotel once we got to Paris, I’ll tell you that. However, if you want to travel anywhere, especially to a busy place like Paris, you have to accept the fact that you might be stranded at a train station in the middle of the night. As I said, ‘Don’t forget about the journey!’ So, now we are here in Paris and we are definitely going to have a good time! Au Revoir!

Keep Calm and Travel On!
