Paris – Venice 2016: Unexpected Plans and Too Many Trains (Day 1 Part 3)

16:19
Sitting in a Pret A Manger and snacking on soup and crisps while we wait for the Thello night train (19:10) and upload to instagram. Doesn’t look like we’re going to do much else until it’s time to board the train.

19:26
The Thello night train to Venice is leaving the platform…
In the two hour break we had between Pret and getting on the train, dad and I took the metro to the Arc De Triomphe and took tons of photos (see above). We came back to Gare De Lyon an hour and a half later and sat there waiting for the train. After a while the call for boarding came and we were aboard the (very claustrophobic) night train within 10 minutes to quickly find our 4 person couchette with only one person inside… This made us happy for some reason.

A few minutes ago another person was brought to our cabin. Him and the other guy are talking in what I think is Italian while I sit and listen from the upper bunk. The train is surprisingly quiet and the bed isn’t too uncomfortable so hopefully I’ll get enough sleep tonight.
