Hurrah for the holidays!

Something to look forward to – a week in Provence over my birthday.

We booked return tickets (Waterloo – Lille Europe – Avignon) on the Eurostar and TGV yesterday, for a grand total of £109 each (I’d expected more, but then again it’s more expensive than a cheap budget airline flight, and than a comparably long train journey in the UK, eg London – Aberdeen).

And today Phil’s confirmed a booking for a double room at the Hotel d’Angleterre, a family run, Logis de France hotel in central Avignon with WiFi in every room!!! Phil’s in seventh heaven at the prospect (of WiFi), as I am (at the prospect of a holiday, in France)
