Hi, I am staying close to Bordeaux and have currently booked a ski hol in the south Alps. Grand Serra Che (Serra Chevalier). The nearest SNCF station is at Briancon (but it takes more than 10 hours to go there by train from bordeaux ) and I would need spend a night at the village (which means more cost for acccom). Some people I know are recommending a flight to Lyon then bus or train to the ski resorts. However not sure how much this will cost. Anybody do it before and can advise? Any recommendations for a relatively cheap way?? Thanks.
Did anyone watch the farcical situation in Trafalgar Square today ? You would have sworn England had won the World cup or something of similar triumph! They win a test series and are almost given the Freedom of the City ! Yes they deserved to win the Test series but surely the celebrating is a bit over the top ! Does this mean that if they win the next test series against the next test side they play against, that we're going to have to go through the same over the top festivities again ?
