3.5hrs from Germany?!?! Blimey!!

I couldn't believe it myself, but that near that tunnel must be something like a rocket launch platform.. I live 20 minutes from Aachen, there goes a train to bruxelles belgium.. 30 minutes stop there and than one way ticket London without stop.. Never traveled the tunnel before.. They say flying takes longer because of the check in and security control time at the airports. It's nuts.

Aachen Hbf 07:23
Thalys to Bruxelles-Midi/Brussel 08:32

08:52 Eurostar 9117 London St.Pancras
09:57 London St.Pancras(Londen)

It's only about 30 mins away from me but that'll be one of the busiest days of the year in my profession...will put in a holiday request form & see what happens.
Fingers crossed :)

Yes indeed Roy, already brainstorming how to get it fixed without damaging the emersed growth.. But already got it.. stick 16 mm pvc pipe with tape to the corners sticking up high enough and rap it up with cling film will do.. :) :thumbup:
