    In August my husband and I are going on a vacation to Amsterdam. I came across this article by chance, but it interested me a lot. Paris is a place I've wanted to visit all my life. And then it hit me that just 3 hours and 17 minutes by train, and I'm already in the city of dreams. Of course, could have been done in an hour, thanks to the plane, if it were not for my fear of flying. The article was very informative and useful, thanks to it, I finally realized my dream. Thank you!
