The Anonymous Widower

From Barcelona To Paris

The TGV between Barcelona and Paris took six and a half hours.

Sadly, I didn’t see any flamingos this time, as I did in From Madrid To London in 2014.

This journey illustrates the good and the bad of double-deck trains.

You may get a good view, but getting in and out is a nightmare, as everybody travels with enormous bags and have to take them up and down the stairs.
