Then I meet the right girl at the right time and, well, I make a leap of faith and fly to Spain to hopefully meetup with her for some more travels…
Also, I take a bus here from Paris! First time I’ve ever taken a bus in a train and under a channel…
I dress up like an American Colonial and go all throughout London having fun for July 4th!
Enjoy the video and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
I’m on my way from London to Paris with the Eurostar train. This is a neat high speed train that goes through the Chunnel (channel tunnel) from England to France. It’s really convenient in that it takes only a little over two hours to get from London to Paris and it drops you off in the middle of Paris or London, depending on the direction in which you are taking the train. However, it is expensive.
Also, this video continues my journey through Europe.
Here are the links to the Eurostar train and the bus websites that are listed at the end of the video.

Just a beautiful sunny day in London. You can see the London Eye in the background and some crazy golden bird. I have to say that there are few cities that can match London on a nice day. 🙂
The U.K. is notorious for having the most difficult border crossing in Europe. The border agents for the U.K. are the strictest, most annoying, and down-right ridiculous immigration control people of any country that I have been to in Europe.
I have had to endure questioning from these dolts so many times that I can’t even count; but, through this process, I have learned what they want to hear and what they don’t want to hear.
Below, I will share my experiences with you and tell you how to get through the U.K. immigration control.
This also works exactly the same for Ireland. Anywhere you read “U.K.” in this article, you can also read it as “U.K. and Ireland.”
The other day I decided that I wanted to drop by London for a week or two; it is such a nice luxury to be able to do this. But, if you are in Dublin, Ireland, it is really no luxury at all. There are a number of ways to get to London from Dublin and they don’t cost much at all.
I will talk about how I took the ferry and train to get to London from Dublin and then I’ll cover the other two typical ways to make this journey. As well, I will give you links to all of the websites needed to book your tickets and get more information. Aren’t I nice 😀
