We are currently on the Eurostar. Feeling very clever we tried to buy our tickets on the automated machines, unfortunately our machine crashed and we had to seek help and nearly missed our train. We are travelling through the hillside and you often can't help but think it is not unlike driving through NSW and then you come across a small hill with the ruins of a castle on it and you realize we not even remotely close.
We must be in the Tuscan countryside now the view is breathtaking.
We stopped at a small patisserie on the way to the station and filled up a bag with the tiniest biscuits and cakes. Add that to a bag full of cheese, ham and breadrolls and we have quite the picnic for our journey.
