... tracking some of the last wild mountain gorillas in the world to the Great Plains of the Serengeti where we'll be hoping to catch a glimpse of the big 5. Finishing in Zanzibar, Africa's own tropical spice island. Leaving on the day of sister Alice's prom, something she's been planning since the first day of Secondary School. Frustratingly there was little that I could do to stay to see Alice, due to the scheduling of flight times. She did leave me ...

... was only 2 stations. Exited the train and followed the directions to the Eurostar - last "hurdle", get to the barrier and it needs a ticket to open it which I don't have. I asked a very nice young Frenchman and he took my bag and I "piggybacked" him thought the gate when he swiped his card. Certainly made up for the horrid Frenchman at Lyon airport! Get to the Eurostar entrance to notice there is a huge long queue and actually no one is ...
