Railing thru Europe: Stop 6.2 France – Paris Disneyland~!

“To Infinity…and Beyond!” I’m sure many of you would have heard that phrase from Tim Allen’s character Buzz Lightyear in Disney’s Toy Story, but in french? Oui Oui… We took the 40 mins Suburban train ride to reach the town of Marne-la-Vallée where Paris Disneyland is located. Along the way we could see many families carrying all sorts... Read More


Railing thru Europe: Stop 6.1 France – Paris

From the Swiss Alps, we arrive in the most popular tourist destination in the world, Paris! It is not hard to imagine why as there are so many things to see with the numerous museums, monuments and iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame de Paris and the Louvre just to name a few. Though it is true that some of the Parisians do speak only French which makes communicating... Read More


Railing thru Europe: Stop 3.6 Southern France – Monaco

Though Monaco is an independent country and the 2nd smallest country after the Vatican, we have decided to categorise it under Southern France as the city is part of the Côte d’Azur (also known as the French Riviera). Taking the train from Cannes to Monaco, we could see many nice beaches as well as the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean sea. Many rich and famous celebrities... Read More


Railing thru Europe: Stop 3.5 Southern France – Cannes

The next day, we were greeted with fantastic clear sky and sunny weather! We were pretty hype up about coming to Cannes as everytime we had heard about Cannes is about the ‘Cannes Film Festival’ as its one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious film festivals. It is held around May annually therefore we had already missed it. Nevertheless, it was still great... Read More


Railing thru Europe: Stop 3.4 Southern France – Nice

Heading to Nice wasn’t as easy as we thought it was. Concurrent rains from the previous days had caused the railway tracks near the city of Toulon to be flooded and there was no way any train could head eastwards to Nice. As we had pre-booked our accommodation there, we had no choice but to get as close as possible to Nice and find alternate modes of transportation there.... Read More


Railing thru Europe: Stop 3.3 Southern France – Marseille

It continued to drizzle even as we arrived in St Charles train station at Marseille though we should take comfort that it didn’t rain cats and dogs. As we venture out from the main entrance we realised that it was located on top of a small hill and we could see the surroundings of the city from here, most notably is the Notre-Dame de la Garde perched on top of another hill. Main... Read More


Railing thru Europe: Stop 3.2 Southern France – Avignon

The next morning, we took a train to the city of Avignon and were greeted with a slight shower, which would become worse as the day wore on. i believe if on a sunny weather, the city wouldn’t appear dull and grey and would appear more captivating then seen on our pictures. The main entrance to the city The Palace of the Popes To the left of the Palace is the Avignon Cathedral... Read More


Railing thru Europe: Stop 3.1 Southern France – Montpellier

About 4.5 hrs train ride away from Barcelona, Montpellier is the 8th biggest city in France. Our main purpose of a stop-over here was to meet up with Yee’s cousin and also to use the city as a base to make day trips to the other cities in the Provence region like Marseille and Avignon. Our impression of the city (based on conversations made with Yee’s cousin before we... Read More
