The train is always an adventure



On this new weekend of holiday departures, the trains are stormed by tourists preferring the speed of rail transport to the risk of traffic jams on the roads.

As for every weekend of departures on vacation, there will be many trips throughout France, especially on the roads, to the point that Bison Smart ranked red the day of Saturday in the direction of departures and orange for returns. The stations are also filled with travelers, 1,400,000 people are expected, as at the Gare de Lyon from where trains depart to the southeast.

Houria and her family are used to rail transport, which they borrow every year to go to Evian. And despite the rush in the station, the heat and the delays, they always travel in a good mood. “Even if there are people, we are happy, it’s a chance to leave,” says Houria at the microphone of Europe 1, before taking his train. And if she says she has already experienced several delays of “3-4 hours”, she does not worry too much. “It does not stress us more than that, because we’re happy to leave, Evian is a place we often go to, we know it’s going to be great.”

It’s an opportunity to meet people

Despite the risks of delays, many travelers choose the train, much faster than the car, for practical reasons. A choice that suits very well to Maxence, 8, who can have many more occupations, and lists the benefits of the train. I can play card games, it’s comfortable to sleep, you can see the landscape, you can move, you do not have your belt to put on.

Marie has opted for the night train to Venice. “It’s really a pleasure to take the train in special conditions, says the vacationer, for whom the train is “always a place of adventure”. “The holidays start on the train,” she says, “it’s an opportunity to meet people.” And to believe it, the arrival in the Italian city is “beautiful”. “You have the impression that the train is on the water and you have Venice in the distance.


n China, we took the train 8 times and we still remember it. It was an adventure we did not expect.

To start, you have to understand that you can only enter the station for people with a ticket. And that all output is final. We do not laugh with the rules in China!

At this first counter, we check our tickets, the suitcases are systematically X-ray. Then, we are invited to go to the “waiting room”.

At first, seeing the “waiting room” logo, I thought we would find ourselves in a classic waiting room on the model of those of the SNCF. But, it was bad knowing the density of China. At Beijing Station, there are no less than 13 waiting rooms, each as large as the lobby of the entire Montparnasse station.

For our first trip by train, we had naively thought that 2h in advance, it was more than enough. But when we arrived in the “waiting room”, we discovered a room already full arch. All the seats were already occupied. Many people were also sitting on their suitcase. Others waited on mini stools or in position “I pee between two cars”. As we traveled by train, we noticed that waiting rooms are always very noisy places. Some even are allowed to smokers. And each time, half of the room is busy greedily eating a dish of freeze-dried noodles. These rooms are not heated: in Datong station, it should be 5 ° C.

Access to the train is blocked by barriers where the second “check ticket” takes place. The Chinese line up one hour before the time announced for the departure of the train. In fact, they do not really line up, they rather elbows to duplicate each other without any qualms. #every man for himself

When access to the wharf is finally open, it’s a real war that begins. Shortly before the opening of the access to the wharf, one can feel a tension and a generalized stress. It’s true that the situation is stressful. Already, we must try not to be trampled to get to the second ticket control. Then, once past this barrier, all the Chinese start running to get on the train first. What you need to know is that the Chinese often travel very busy and there is not enough room for everyone’s luggage. So, the last to arrive is the one who travels with his huge bag on his lap. Not wanting to spend 9 hours of train with more than 15 kg on the knees, we would run too.

Before getting on the train, there is a third “check ticket”. I challenge anyone to cheat in China (and it’s not over). There are two controllers per wagon (yes by wagon !!) and their quasi-military outfits do not make you want to be smart.

    Thanks for expressing your ideas. I would also like to say that video games have been actually evolving. Modern technology and revolutions have helped create sensible and enjoyable games. These kinds of entertainment video games were not actually sensible when the real concept was being tried out. Just like other kinds of technological know-how, video games also have had to grow by means of many years. This is testimony on the fast growth and development of video games.

    I have seen plenty of useful factors on your web site about pcs. However, I’ve got the view that lap tops are still not nearly powerful enough to be a wise decision if you usually do tasks that require many power, like video editing and enhancing. But for world-wide-web surfing, word processing, and quite a few other prevalent computer functions they are okay, provided you cannot mind your little friend screen size. Appreciate sharing your opinions.

It really does paint the grim seriousness in tone for this version of the Joker. While that does allow for an enticing piece of more mature Entertainment than the usual comic book Film, There’s definitely more than a few solid points about how dangerously influential it could be.

Obviously this is a different type of movie, one which does deserve some consideration for its effects on those less mentally stable. But it’s worth pointing out that in this scenario, the movies aren’t to blame. But rather the events in which these people were made mentally unstable to begin with.

8 tips to prepare your camping holidays




Tip N 1: Choose your destination

It is a fact, it is much more pleasant to sleep in nature when the sun is at the rendezvous! It is therefore important to choose your destination according to your holiday period. While some countries enjoy a fairly high sunshine throughout the year to consider camping in all seasons, this is not the case everywhere. For the regions of the north of France or Brittany, for example, give a clear preference to summer periods.

Tip N 2: Choosing the right campsite

The campsite has grown enormously in recent years and now offers different types of accommodation that will suit most travelers. Some campsites or holiday villages offer daily entertainment during the high season and pools worthy of water parks, others rely more on the nature and wild side. There is also glamping, very fashionable, which offers high-end services and great comfort. You choose.

Tip N 3: Check the condition of its equipment before leaving

Seasoned camper, do you think you have all the necessary equipment? However, take the time to test your tent, sleeping bag and stove prior to departure. Why not do a simulation in the garden? If your tent is new, it will also be the opportunity to plant it for the first time and avoid any problem if some sardines were missing! An informed camper is worth two.

Tip N 4: Choose your tent according to your needs

The tent is certainly the most important element of a camping holiday. Before investing, analyze your needs: hikers? holiday in solo or with family? Your temporary home will depend on many factors! For an itinerant stay in Haute Savoie for example, think of very light trekking tents that you can easily place in your backpack. The igloo pop-up tents are, for their part, the main allies of the exceptional campers since they are very simple to mount. Finally, if you travel with children, think of a tent a little more spacious where you take refuge in case of rain.

Tip N 5: Place your tent in a shady spot

A tent in the sun can quickly become a real furnace especially in Corsica or Provence! It is therefore impossible to rest during the day, or even at night, if the temperatures do not drop. If you camp in sun-drenched areas, look for a camping spot in the shade. You will have plenty of time to bask on the beach during the day. Also, remember to head your tent west to continue sleeping peacefully even when the sun rises in the morning.

Tip N 6: Do not forget your flashlight

Most campgrounds turn off their lights during the night, to respect holidaymakers’ sleep and the environment. So remember to bring a flashlight that will be very useful! The ideal is to favor solar lamps or manually refillable to avoid any energy expenditure. Some also allow to spread a light beam that keeps mosquitoes away: a must!

Tip N 7: Buy mosquito repellent

Camping in nature is, inevitably, rubbing shoulders with mosquitoes! So that these little beasts do not completely ruin your holiday, consider investing in a repellent spray or to get a good stock of lemongrass. If you are camping near a lake, swamp or in a particularly infested area, it may be wise to install a mosquito net on your tent to avoid hunting mosquitoes every night!

Tip N 8: Plan simple meals

Let’s be clear, camping holidays are not gastronomic holidays! Exit the dishes of great chefs, we prefer rather simple dishes to prepare. With a stove, pasta and rice will be your best allies in big cravings. Canned sardines and tunas are also great for a quick lunch. Remember to take away cooler, stove and some kitchen utensils.
