No. 9: The Eurostar
Another thing I love about France is the Eurostar. Why? Well, when you get fed up with the Frenchies, it’s reassuring to know that a culture I understand a little bit better is a mere 2 hours and 20 minutes away by high speed train. For those with nightmares of dying a soggy death in a tunnel under the English Channel, you only have to close your eyes and hold your breath for a scant 22 minutes.
