When I entered King’s Cross Station in London early one morning to catch a high-speed train to Paris, I was perhaps a little too tired to be excited. But under the groggy cloud that trailed me, I was more excited than I’d been my whole trip.
I was going to be in Paris, the one place I wanted to visit more than any other. The Eurostar train I took was clean and comfortable, and I slept for a majority of the two and a half hour trip, but I was awake as we pulled into the center of Paris where I disembarked for my too brief visit to the city of lights.
I couldn’t have asked for a more convenient and affordable way to travel, and now, , “the North American leader in European rail travel,” has several offers for customers to make their own European adventures easy and memorable this season.
