Two Years Ago I Traveled by TGV from Brussels to Bordeaux.

SNCF’s magnificently engineered high-speed railways lines (known as the LGV) permit its TGV high-speed trains to reach speeds of approximately 200 mph on select portions of the network.

On 26 April 2016, I traveled from Brussels to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport where I met my father who was arriving from Iceland, and we continued by train to Bordeaux. This was part of a three-week railway adventure across central Europe.

I made these views with my Lumix LX7.

SNCF’s Charles de Gaulle Airport Station offers excellent airline-train connections.

SNCF’s TGVs are among the high speed trains featured in my new Railway Guide to Europe published by Kalmbach Publishing.

  1. No idea. That was a photo of my new book exposed two weeks ago on a flight from Dublin to Bristol. It would involve a time-travel paradox if the book was pictured on the journey featured in the book. Brian Solomon
