The Eurostar is really a very useful invention to connect the UK with the rest of the European continent. It drives you safely under the sea through a tunnel and 20 min later you are on the other side both ways. For people who want to visit London or the North of the UK it is really very, very practical and quick. It takes you exactly 3 h from Brussels to London, the train running at 300 km/h (186 mph) on a network of high-speed lines.

It only becomes an adventure when you want to go to the South East coast of England !

You spoke of this train once before I think. I LOVE to travel by train - and I wish it were more readily used in the U.S. ... but this bit about going through a 20 minute tunnel DOES ME IN! I don't think I could do it! I'm CERTAIN I couldn't do it! I'll take the one that goes OVER the sea please...

You say you found a stuffed kitty pillow? Well.....now you just have to show n tell it next week.

I'm so curious. Just like a cat. LOL
[and you say 'childish'? Who cares?!! If it's what you like, go for it!]

Happy weekend dear Gatttina

I'm like Melli. I am very claustrophobic. But I might just force myself to do this one day.

Oh we knew some people when we were in Brussels last time that took the train to London and back. They said it was fast and fabulous. I always wanted to do that myself. Sounds like such a wonderful way to see Europe!!

It looks like our Tilt train that goes up to Cairns. I want to go on the Eurostar...probably in about three or four years' time. If my grandson is still living in Holland then, it's a good excuse to visit.
