@judeswae How are you getting back to Barcelona?
@mheiber taking the train tomorrow. Why? Where are you?
@judeswae Ah, okay .. Cologne! 😃
@judeswae A train all the way down to Barcelona?
@mheiber yes. 9 hours trip. Saarbrucken > Paris > Barcelona.
@judeswae There's a train from Paris to Barcelona? That's amazing!
@mheiber Yes. 6 hours.
@mheiber with the ICE and the TGV. It's super fast. Free wifi in the train. Room for legs. Nice landscape. A bar. And no security controls, waiting in line, turning off devices, etc. ;)
@judeswae I know! I'll definitely consider it the next time I'm going to Barcelona, thanks!
@mheiber Yeah. I want to encourage some colleagues to do this. It seems like you can have a productive day of work, enjoy the ride and do something for the planet at the same time. :)
@judeswae Oof, it's pricey though .. 291 EUR one-way from Cologne, with discounts? 😓
@judeswae And it's almost 12 hours too because of a bad transfer in Paris 😞
@mheiber Oh, really. I was lucky with Saarbrucken then. It's 200€ round trip. Plane was 400€. With these fast trains, like with planes, the earlier you book, the cheapest it gets.
@mheiber I maybe should have thought about making a detour via some of our german offices. :) But it slipped my mind. I guess I also secretly expected some TWers would join me here. 😁
@judeswae I was on vacation myself 😏
