LONDON TO CALAIS LEG
Planet Elldrew don’t want readers to think that our lives are too glamorous, but we did get a fabulous opportunity to experience first-hand the ‘Golden Age of Travel’ aboard the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express (VSOE).
What a trip it was; 48 hours that sparkled like the champagne that flowed into crystal glasses and gleamed like the polished mahogany across every surface…this surely has to be the most fantastic train journey in the world, on the most famous train of course!
One of the top 5 things on our to do list is to take a trip on the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train from London to Venice. Since it’s inaugural trip from Paris to Istanbul in 1883 the Orient-Express has captured the world’s imagination and is simply described as one of the ‘finest travel experiences’ – a recent Chanel No.5 advert reinforced our love for this iconic train.
