Last week, I took a train to meet up with my best friend, Jackie, and her family in Paris for a few days.I rode the Thalys, which is a high speed train that travels up to 300 km/h, or 186 mph. The train stopped a few times to pick up more passengers as we made our way through the Netherlands and Belgium, but I arrived in Paris late Monday afternoon in just over three hours.
I still can’t believe this is actually happening!
A few months ago, Matt’s employer offered him the opportunity to work on a project in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It would be a short-term stay, an estimated four to six months.
Of course, my first question was, “Can I go?”, to which they replied, “Yes, Mrs. Vera, you can.”
So I am!
