Citytrip 2012
Paris, France

In August 2012 we made a city trip to the capital of France, Paris. Rather than going by plane we choose to go by train, the TGV. The Très Grande Vitesse train. We first went to Rotterdam where boarded the TGV, then the next stop was Brussels and then Paris.

It was quite an experience, and nothing like the usual train experience. This train runs very quiet, one can here oneself think. It brought us in only a couple of hours to the most northern train station of Paris, Gare du Nord. The hotel where we made reservations is only a five minute walk from here.
