... but it only went for half an hour which was a bit of a shame. We then all went to a bar across the road called Jimmys. It was great fun, I recall the bathroom foyer being filled with a thousand different perfumes and deodorants to refresh which was funny.

In France, these bullet trains are called TGV, and we clocked our train (using GPS) at 180 mph. As a point of reference, a 747 jumbo jet takes off at 160 mph. You were not allowed to stick your hands out of the windows on this train. We arrive in Barcelona in the early afternoon, and quickly figure out our subway route to our lodging for the night. For ...
