5/14/2008 冒險第四天: 從亞維儂搭TGV到圖爾 (Adventure 4th day: Taking TGV train from Avignon to Tours)

 
Today I’ll leave Provence for Loire Valley~ 
By the way, this is the website for those who need a reference about booking TGV. Remember, if you are going with 1 or more friends, make sure you all book together, because it’ll save you some bucks. Also, make sure to take advantage of the railpass if you need to take 3 or more rounds of trains.
Just some information: TGV is accronym for “Train a Grande Vitesse”–French for “high speed train,” and is the world’s highest average speed regular railroad passenger service. 
Railroad pass can only be purchased outside of France. Once you need to take the train, make sure to go to the window for signing your seat. Before you go on the train, there’s always some machines around the entrance gate for stamping the date on the ticket–make sure you do that.
在車站有一些可以自己買票的機器, 但是付錢方式只有信用卡, 不過有興趣可以玩玩看. 有英文介面, 我覺得做得還不錯.
還有~有些車站TGV站跟普通火車站是分開的, 像Avignon就是, 兩邊甚至離有點遠, 最好先問清楚.
This is waiting area for the train, on the 2nd floor. (雖然法國的樓層都是從0樓算起, 就是說他說一樓其實是我們說的二樓, 不過在這裡我還是習慣用我們自己的說法.) 雖然建築很有現代感, 在這裡太陽高照時實在蠻熱的, 沒什麼冷氣, 冷氣在樓下
在火車上常常可以看到這個標誌, 就是要你把行動電話轉無聲, 也不要講電話~
這個標誌就是可以在這裡講電話~
這個是要載我在羅亞河流域跟諾曼第的車, 是Citroen的, 法國人都開很小的車, 不過小車很省油. 上一部在普羅旺斯的車也是差不多大小, 是Opel的.
 It was a bit passed 7pm when I arrived at Tours. 先去旅館check in再找晚餐~ 旅館附近有幾家餐廳跟一個超大的商場, 商場裡有一個很大的超市, 叫Auchan, 什麼鬼都有~~~–>我現在才知道原來這個超市台灣也有~就是大潤發!
猜猜這是那裡:
是McDonald’s喔~~ 很神奇吧!!!
