France short break

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

Done with Marseille now at the Saint Charles train station waiting for train to Paris. I will post past 2-3 days photos in the train later had been busy. This is where I separate from my travelling companion, she's going to Spain and then Switzerland while I will get back to Bangkok to work.

Basic breakfast at the station

McDonalds auto kiosks, really cool.

Ok it seems funny we had Chinese food in Paris but by the 3rd day we were already craving for spicy food so went to google and found this Sichuan restaurant that opens only for dinner and no reservations.

Went there saw this queue so must be good

We queued for like 20mins
Image

Ordered a chicken and a beef

The beef

I have to admit we really enjoyed this meal tremendously because it is very original and tasty. Portion was very big actually ordered too much.

If you need something to do while waiting for the food to arrive, why not read George Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London? Gives you perspective.

"Mac Donald's auto kiosk / cool "

Studies in UK have shown that many people go to the toilets, and then touch the auto kiosk screen without having washed their hands.

Eeeew.

Stay away from " La Mousse au Chocolat du patron", as we say.... :stir:
