We were in Paris for just 3 days and then took the train to London. (Check out 3 Day Trip Guide: Paris) Well, at least my friend did. I think Mercury was in retrograde or I was just a terrible traveler this trip because I waited until the last minute to get my train ticket and it was over 300 Euros! 0_o Like um no. So I searched for one-way flights and found a really inexpensive one for the next morning at 7:30 am. The rest were too rich for my blood. Mind you we planned on partying until 3am, that coupled with jetlag, I ended up being locked out of the flight. You were supposed to arrive 2 hours before. Which was nuts, me and my fellow would-be passengers (around 20) just looked at the ticket staff in sleepy shock. Thank goodness I had my smartphone and opted for the Verizon travel plan. I was able to search on my phone for buses from Paris to London. I found some really great options for under 30 euros. So I finally was on a bus to London. Fun fact , you actually have to cross the English Channel so the bus is loaded on this water freight thingy. My claustrophobia wasn’t triggered due to the fact I was so exhausted from partying and missing flights that I slept most of the way.
Anyhoo- I finally arrived in London and this how I spent the 3 days that I had left.
