I must say, I highly recommend the Eurostar from London to Marseille. The whole process was painless compared to last week’s trip from Lake Como to Dulwich Village. This time, it was simply arriving at the station, showing my passport, zooming thorough security and then taking my seat on the fast train through to the South of France in 6 hours total! Beautiful countryside too.
The restaurant car had an excellent selection of breakfasts, tea and coffee, croissants and madelines, and for lunch I enjoyed a vegetarian stroganoff.
Here’s my office for the next two weeks: my terrace with a view of Saint Vincent de Paul (in Australian that would be “Vinnies”). On the other side, is a view of the Mediterranean Sea!
