EEE 2013 - Nancy - France

Recommended Posts

I have looked into the trains recently and found that it can be a lot more money than I thought at first. I have booked the Eurostar to Paris using some Avios points. I am fortunate that I collect a lot of Avios, others may not be so lucky. The Eurostar cost me £50 plus 30,000 Avios (for two Adults).. The train from Paris to Nancy appears to be a different story. The Eurostar doesn't go to Nancy so I will have to book another train. I have only just found out about this fairly recently but French railways do have a rather curious pricing structure. The price can vary hugely depending on what time of day that you travel. The return fare to nancy for two people varies from £54 to £140, so , I am trying to book a cheaper ticket.. I will let everyone know how I get on, the website didn't work earlier.

Welcome to France! The most bureaucratic country in the world. The SNCF price scale is one of the most complicated things we have (among many many others).

Thanks. I have now booked the train to Nancy. Managed to get the fare for £54 each way (2 adults) to Nancy from Paris. I have been told that that is quite a good deal. There weren't many tickets available on one leg at this price. I don't know why I bother putting all this on the forum though, we are probably the only two people going from the UK.

Incidently, we did check the distance to drive to Nancy , and it is like driving from London to Scotland, not very practical.

That's good Dennis. We will be able to meet up with all the other Nancy boys.

Oh God, the English language sometimes ! I meant to say the other boys from Nancy.

To bad it isn't one week later. I am leaving for the south of France the 12th of July. It would have been a nice pit stop...

Totally echo that! Great three days, a great credit to all involved and a massive thanks to all our French friends who put together an event that will be long remembered.

The quality of plants on sale (and on display) was also extremely good and a lot of people went home very happy, including myself.

Can't wait until the next EEE.

Yes, it was a great 3 days! Where were all gathered together! The possibility of real communication with many people discussing plants. Wonderful shopping, a lot of interesting plants and a lot of pleasure from EEE. Just a beautiful botanical garden, the interesting architecture of the city, an interesting view on the main square of the city! We look forward to following about the event!

Best regards, Natalia.
