Oui! Oui! Nous voyageons sur la Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français à Nice.
After crossing the Eurotunnel using Folkestone taxi, we drove to Gare de Calais Ville.
We had two hours to kill – so Mummy decided we must have a cafe au lait and a croissant
Thr train journey from Calais to Paris Gare du Nord was only about two hours.
We had to take a taxi to Gare de Lyon. I had a good look at the Paris streets.
Out taxi driver was very chatty. He kept saying what a pretty dog I am but I thinkhe rather liked Mummy – LOL! He kept giving Mummy goodbye kisses when we got to Gare de Lyon. 🙂
And then the long journey from Paris to Calais began. Mummy shared her ham and cheese baguette with me.
I got a little nervous when Mummy went to ththe WC. I watched where she was going and made sure she was coming back.
There were two other dogs on the same cabin – this is Oscar, a 14 year old poodle!!! He was very friendly and wanted to play but I wasn’t into socialising. The other dog was a German Shepherd – scared the wits out of me!
The sun was soon setting – the last lights of the day.
Then after a long delay, we finally arrived in Nice Ville at 23.30. The train went on a slow track after Toulon – and crept it’s way into Cannes – after a 20minute stop somewhere I’ve never heard of. Then it continued to crawl.
Enfin! Nous en sommes arrivés
May’s comment: Darcy was amazing during her travel. It was a long journey but she was calm and watchful.
