High Fives - June 16, 2017

When I was young my family went from Montreal to Calgary by train and we slept in berths. For me it was fun, like camping out.
Quite a few years ago I looked into travelling on the Orient Express from Paris to Istanbul. What can I say, I’m a romantic history buff. The travel agent had to look into it, as apparently there is not much call for that trip.  She got back to me with a brochure and a price… over $15,000 CDN.  “We’re not bringing the kids” I told her.  
Ah, no.  That is per person.  GASP!
If you think you might want to go, here is where you can book.  
At the time I looked into the trip £1 was approximately $2.50 CDN.
If it is just the sights you want without the pomp, with a Europe Interrail pass you can do the trip on a budget, like Sarah wrote about in this article.

I had an idea Lisa would come up with easy follow instructions, she is so good with maps! Thank you Lisa!

I was able to listen to a snippet and it sure whet my appetite! I have many family members who crossed into the US. Seems like a good webinar to order or keep an eye out for a rerun.

Try it!  You’ll like it!  Type a surname in the search box, you may be surprised at where in the world they show up! Even though they are French publications, there are English names in the books too.
