Frustration Ensues When Traveling from Rome to Barcelona

Licking our cones in satisfaction we look at the board to see what track our train is on, but couldn’t find it anywhere. Not one electronic line of information stated our train number let alone anything saying its destination was Nice. Scott pulls out our reservation ticket to double-check the time and with much swearing advises me he was always looking at the date on the ticket rather then the time!! Our train was actually the one we saw on the board when we first arrived here. Now we just wasted money on our reservation fee and are starting to worry if we can even get to Nice tonight for our hotel reservation with an already paid deposit.

You know this is First Class right?

So what has first class train travel been like? First class train travel is soft on our bums, filled of huge smiles from the attendants, roomy leg space, quiet, and barely ever have to sit right next to strangers. The bathrooms on the other hand I think are no different then any class. Even to the point that some don’t have any toilet paper and smell like an alley you don’t want to walk down.

Problems using our Eurail pass in Venice

More than a bit frustrated, we went down to an internet cafe to see if we could book online. We found a Eurail fare for €55 each that was part of our Globalpass, but didn’t think that was correct as the full fare was only €110. We didn’t book the tickets because we wanted to talk to the train office the next morning to verify these prices, it shouldn’t be so much.
