Read a great article by travel guru Rick Steves today about the Eurostar train between London and Paris. Talk about easy! You go right from one city center to the next in about 2.5 hours flat, without any of the hassles of air travel. No need to get transportation out to the airport, deal with security lines, pay extra for your baggage, etc.
With high speed rail service like this, there’s really no need to have to choose between fish and chips in a London pub or wine and cheese in a Parisian cafe — you can have both in one trip!
I have some clients who used the Eurostar this summer for a quick trip to London and Paris. They were lucky enough to grab a promotional discount for the upgraded “Leisure Select” service (complete with a gourmet meal, private departure lounge, and more) and they absolutely loved it:
It was great. Super comfortable, announcements in all languages, good food, and very fast. Such an easy way to travel – beats the plane any day!
I know that a trip through the Chunnel is on my “bucket list”. How about you?
