Vienna to Paris (and maybe to UK)

Hi All!

We (2 of us) are trying to figure out the best way to get from Vienna to Paris by train – and we have had no real success. We can’t figure out what the prices are on OBB, or if that is even the best way to go. We want to leave Vienna on July 13th with a ticket to Paris. Any suggestion on the best way to do this? Also – is there any type of pass we could by that would get us from Vienna to Paris, let us travel around France and than get us to the UK? I’m guessing no, but thought I would ask anyways.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

London to Greek Islands?

hi all,

I’d like to book a flight from London UK to the Greek islands. I’ve searched on some of the FareCompare sites but can’t really find anything. There used to be a very cheap route via Milan to Santorini but I guess they don’t do that anymore.

I’d really apreacite it if anyone could tell me of any cheap routes to the Greek Islands! Thanks so much.

Visiting The Iconic London Tower Bridge

Often mistaken for London Bridge, Tower Bridge is one of London’s most iconic attractions. Tower Bridge has its own exhibition where you can scale the heights of the bridge and admire a glorious view of London’s skyline. One tip is to check the Tower Bridge website to see when the bridge lifts up to let tall ships and boats pass through. It is definitely a sight to see and popular with tourists.

An alternative way to see the bridge is by boat. The majority of the cruise companies charge similar prices so pick your favourite looking boat and enjoy the ride up the Thames River.
