Traveling at High Speed (2006-10-15)

Fountain in Antigone District of Montpellier, FranceWe walked around "the Champs-Élysées of Montpellier" in the Antigone District Sunday morning before riding the TGV back to Paris. Our weekend in Montpellier used two of our six travel days (in 30 calendar days) on our France SaverPass. We chose to see France by rail because I enjoy trains as a romantic way to travel. The TGV speeds along a viaduct over the farms on the French countryside--grade-separated because it travels up to 186 mph. The next weekend we'll see Nantes, and the following weekend we plan to see Chamonix.
