Almost everyone headed to France, and other places too, land in Paris at Charles de Gaulle airport. If you're going on to other places in France or in Europe, you may take the long trek from the air terminals to the train station. They're all connected.
We pulled our wheeled suitcases behind us and weaved around groups of people who stood still, wondering which way to go to find a taxi. The same walk will take people to the local trains that ferry them into the heart of Paris.
When we traveled with the kids, we caught a bus that took us to the train terminal. Now, it's just easier to walk.
Once we got there, we saw this list of trains leaving Paris.
We had an hour or so before our train to Aix en Provence left, so we headed up to a local boulangerie, which is right there in the train station.
This is a chain now, and the food doesn't compare to what you might get at a local boulangerie anywhere in Paris or smaller cities around France. But to us weary travelers, what an opportunity to settle down and enjoy a few pastries.
This is a chausson pommes -- apples folded under that lovely sugary crust.
And this is a tart sucre. A sugar tart.
And these pastries say welcome to France. I wonder how long it will be before I get to try these kinds of pastries again.
