Heading South

We had a train to catch to Avignon in the South of France - Part 2 of our trip. The train station is a bit different than the airport -no skycaps to help with bags. Nevertheless, we managed just fine.

We traveled the TGV bullet train down to Avignon. These trains travel at about 200 mph - that's fast - so an 8 hour drive turns into and a 2 1/2 super comfy, quit ride.

It was really cool to see the countryside change as we headed south. Paris in pretty flat, but as you head further south the topography turns into rolling hills and finally mountains. One more very important item - we made it to wine country - the adventure continues!
