Two of the most famous landmarks in Europe are the Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower. For a person who has full enthusiasm to travel the world, these popular tourist spots would surely be on his list. However, there is an obstacle to be able to visit the two skyscrapers. The two destinations are located in two different countries – France and United Kingdom.
Initially, it would not pose a really big threat, not until you realize that a sea separates the two states. Today, there is no need to worry. Choosing to travel between France and UK is now as easy as 1,2,3 for an underwater train called the Eurostar which makes each island accessible to the other.
The distinct characteristic about the Eurostar is that the travel time is really fast. The short amount of time necessary, is in addition to the characteristic of the train being extra cold for its passengers. Indeed, for a person who is not from Europe and has never experienced the Eurostar before, this experience is one which should be treasured and labelled as a travel adventure.
Eurostar also eliminates the hassle of having to encounter the document processing required in international airports. However, it is also necessary for those who travel from one European country to another to possess the required legal documents such as the Schengen visa. With the proper files at hand and just a little time, you will be able to see the famed Big Ben and also enjoy the lights of the Eiffel Tower at night. The train ride is just a bonus to what is in store after it.
