London, Dover, Calais, Paris, and a few stops in between

A word of advice for all your low-budget travellers, don’t take the local trains across two countries. Spend the extra cash and take either the Eurostar or an EasyJet flight. Trust me on this one.

We went from Paddington to Charing Cross with little pains, aside from the normal tube-ridding experience. Then we missed the first departing train to Dover, so we were off schedule the whole day, causing us hour-long layovers in Dover, Calais, Bulogne-Ville, and Amiens before finally reaching Paris-Nord.

Once arrived in Paris, and after accepting the fact that we are useless at French, we went a-walking to the Tour Eiffel. Cmon, we had to.
