  • "Brive to CDG Airport"    
    Relaxed trip. Train was comfortable. But, I missed which station to exit. I exited one station before the CDG Airport station because I did not understand the instruction by the microphone of the train. It was only 10 minutes to CDG Station, but I had to wait 50 minutes for the next train.
