Jan. 21, 2020, 8:47 p.m. - Spoke a train man at a desk in Lyon - he gave us some cheap tickets to Vienne, he wasn't convinced we'd get much luck elsewhere tonight
Want to get out of the city centre ASAP - it's now dark so losing maximum daylight so we're gonna take what we can get
Jan. 21, 2020, 7:54 p.m. - Yes it has terminated in Lyon and now we are looking for a way out of the city
Jan. 21, 2020, 7:34 p.m. - Soooo
Sitting on a comfy train (cos trains are awesome!) we all fell asleep and have woken up and missed our stop
Pretty sure the train terminated in Lyon but haven't seen a conductor yet so won't be sure until then
Jan. 21, 2020, 2:57 p.m. - On the second train now to Dijon, will get there early evening sacrificing Parisian rats for good fortune from the train gods

Jan. 21, 2020, 9:59 a.m. - We were despairing over the situation in Calais when some English lads offered us a lift to dijon
But this morning they bailed.
Pretty gutted, even the locals say Calais is hard to hitch out of
So sadly paying for a train to dijon in hope of better luck and mustard for our bread.
Mind you, for every cloud there is a silver lining - we are now on a fancy French train! And with France holding the record for the fastest recorded train speed, we'll be there in no time!
