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.

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.”

I want to talk about Space Bags and whether or not you should use it when you travel.  This may seem like a no-brainer, but after traveling now for 13 months straight, I’ve changed my opinion on it a bit.
