Win a free round trip flight to London!

Britain just launched it’s first high speed Eurostar rail line, which means that now the journey between London and Paris takes just two hours and 15 minutes at 186 mph. Holy! Hold onto your Guinness, or your Chardonnay, depending on your direction of travel. Even better, all of the trips are carbon neutral. Yes!!!

Rail Europe is hosting a little contest to celebrate the event. Visit getalittleparis.com and click on “Add a mashup to win.”

What’s a mashup? In this case it’s a combination of recognizable icons from Britain and France. Or more specifically, London and Paris.

A few very easy examples:
The Eiffel Tower and the Tower of London.
A French mime and a British Palace Guard.
A croissant and pub chips.

Go to the getalittleparis website and choose two icons from the homepage. Then click on the little train in the middle and watch the show.

I’m thinking Guiness and Molière. Do you think Queen Elizabeth could have some fun at the Lapin Agile, a notable 19th century cabaret in Paris? Mona Lisa…hmmm. She lives in Paris now, do you think she counts?

I have some fun ideas, but I’m selfish and I want to win that prize.

Register your winning combination and you just might walk away with a round trip flight between Newark and London for two people, plus a bunch of other goodies. You can see a full description of the prize at the website. Good luck!

Don’t forget that we can order rail passes for anyone heading over to Europe. Eurail passes, Swiss passes and multiple country passes are just a few of the many products that we offer. Do you have a group that’s heading over for Christmas? What about a solo traveler on spring break? No problem. The many options can be confusing, so just give us a call and we’ll help you choose the perfect travel option for your trip. You don’t even have to go hiking, though we’d love it if you did.

Again, bonne chance! (Good luck!) or Cheers! Tally ho!
