Starting the 'journey of a lifetime'

We had a quick layover in Paris on our way to Barcelona, and arrived around 5:30pm. Immediately, we sought out the train station and began journeying toward Italy, stopping to change trains in Cabere, France where we paid a little to get a 6-person sleeper- the least expensive- toward Nice, and luckily didn't have roommates. It was the coldest night and although blankets were provided, this hardly did anything to stave off the biting chill in that cabin! They also provided each bed with a water bottle so we snatched the other four- we were on a tight budget!:) In Nice we made another change, heading for Milan, but decided while we were on the train to get off in Genova instead and take a train south to Pisa. All in all, we ended up spending most of our first day on trains!
