Tales from the fast trains

£3.99

Product description

It's all about the journey rather than the destination in this high-speed travel account Tired of airport security queues, delays, and all those extra taxes and charges, Tom Chesshyre embarks on a series of high-speed adventures across Europe on its fast trains instead. From shiny London St. Pancras, Tom travels to places that wouldn't be featured on a standard holiday wish-list, and discovers the hidden delights of mysterious Luxembourg, super-trendy Rotterdam, and much-maligned Frankfurt. It's 186 mph all the way-well, apart from a power cut in the Channel Tunnel on the way to Antwerp.
