Quotes I Like*

Worry is the darkroom in which negatives can develop.

*Your mileage may vary. Some quotes are puns, or require historical or technical literacy to appreciate. If you miss the humor, please re-read the Internet and then try again.

Traveling to Barcelona

The travel agent had assured us that the trains from Paris to Barcelona are never full, and thus no reservation was needed (reservations cost money, about 5 Euro each (a Euro is about a U. S. dollar)).

They were full. Every one.

The very nice French ticket agent struggled for at least 20 minutes to find a route to Barcelona. Finally she booked us on a train leaving at 11:45 p.m. (yes, almost midnight) to Tolouse, then on a local through the mountains, on another to the Spanish border, and then on a metro line to Barcelona.

The overnight portion was in 1st class - four beds to a compartment (Janet got the private room). The beds were very comfortable, probably the best sleep we got on the entire trip. Unfortunately, we had to wake up at 6:45 a.m. to leap from the train at Tolouse, and in our half- sleep confusion we left the kids' digital camera on the train.

The next leg was a ski train, and the views were absolutely breathtaking. The mountains were high, craggy, and snow-capped. A little breakfast or even water, and it would have been delightful (I really missed that British trolley!). The very nice female conductor (in the photo below, at a small station directing traffic) spoke English very well, and dashed our hopes of seeing our lost camera again. *sigh*
