"Ferreting around France" Annette d.
Being somewhat at a loss without a car and using bikes I was well and truly out of my comfort zone.However the rail in France was so easy to use -you could actually place you your bike plus husband and travel The Loire in style.Later we travelled on to other sites ,staff were great and so helpful it made our journey memorable.As an older traveller I found it easy to navigate the beautiful regions and found the experience somewhat different from the 1960's when the budget was tight .The value for money was well and truly felt although sometimes one could not get the seats wanted.Had I been more organised this would not have been a problem. anyway thanks for the good times we had due to your great rail system pity, Australia can't do as well.The attitude of the people to their environment had also been seen and you could feel and see how they now cared for the whole not just the almighty dollar. Comfort Value for money Convenience
