The Orient Express, Paris.

After a manic rush through London Victoria station to find Platform One, you are confronted with the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express check in desk and transported to a world of luxury, glamour and taken back in time.  There’s no better way to travel to Paris than this. Once checking in our bags were taken to meet us upon the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express in Calais.  My excitement was building…
