I’m going to be traveling to paris this weekend by Eurostar. I’ve recently had my first contact with them as an organisation and the experience has left me distinctly underwhelmed. I only hope the actual journey doesn’t pass in the same manner.

The tunnel seemed like a really good idea, but Eurostar just seems like another step too far for the UK. Every person I’ve talked with at the Waterloo terminal (in London) has been french, rude and extremely unhelpful! I’m not saying that any of thsoe things are naturally related, but the absence of native english people was noticeable.
