I took the Eurostar between Paris and London.  It was great!  Because we were traveling in the evening, we bought an upgraded ticket that included meal and wine.  This way we didn’t have to worry about finding dinner in London late at night. The only tricky part was the train station in Paris.  We could not figure out how to get upstairs to the Eurostar area…because the sign was on the elevator door and when the elevator was up, there was no sign.

People seem to either love or hate Paris–no middle ground.  I love it and hope you get an opportunity to go.  It is helpful if you speak/understand some French–it is a little less tourist friendly than other parts of Europe.  However, don’t let that deter you.  I met plenty of friendly people who were very patient as I mutilated their beautiful language.

Traveling by train in Europe is super easy.  I’ve actually taken the train from Brussels to Paris and it’s a really short, and easy ride.  Definitely go for it.  Paris is amazing.  You won’t regret it.
