Worst day of Lee's life
Before we headed to our next destination Paris, we knew that with the little money we had left, we had to be smart and cunning in our means of getting there. Now overhere in England, the conductors don't come asking for tickets until they are settled, with machines ready and so on. So we estimated that around 15-20 minutes into a journey we would get off and board another doing the same thing over and over again. We did that up until Grenoble, near Lyon, which was very picturesque. During this journey, we only departed with around 10 euros each which was very lucky. Our plan had worked a treat! That eased our budget fears a little bit, and with it getting late we decided to sleep in the train station.........the worst nights sleep of my life for sure. Our target was now to get to Paris for that afternoon, trying the same tricks but staying on the trains for a little longer, and if we could get away with when caught, just saying the name of the last stop. This would then get us charged a ticket from the last stop til the next. We did this quite successfully also, and arrived in Paris with little more than 15 euros been spent. Happy days!!
