What Do You Mean We’re Not On Thalys?!

[Funny story.


Right now I am sitting on a train going to Lucerne Switzerland from Brussels and just found out it’s not a Thalys train. What do you mean we’re not on Thalys?! I assumed all train reservations were for Thalys trains. You know those magical trains that make you feel luxurious with free food and drinks? Thinking I was getting a first class meal and drinks and wifi I decided to only buy a tub of peanut butter for when we get to Switzerland so I can eat apples and bananas with it.


And I just found out that I am only not on a Thalys train, there is no food. I have 7 hours to go and if you have read some of my posts you will know I cannot function without food and become an irrational crazy person when I am hungry. I’ve eaten half the thing of peanut butter and self loathing is starting to kick in. Cherry on top is there is no water either.


I’m going to die.


Update I didn’t die –


I ended up going into “airplane mode” as Aaron put it and crawled into a ball on the train till we got to Luxembourg where I then sprinted though the train station to find food during the 10 minute layover we had at that station. I got a baguette and a croissant pretzel.. There was no other vegetarian options. Pastries and bread is getting pretty old real quick. Oh well.


We made it to Basel but missed our train to Lucerne because of a few delays so we found a grocery store and finally, FINALLY, got fruit. You have nooooo idea how much we needed fruit my skin has turned into a croissant and my stomach.. I feel like a cream puff. Amsterdam didn’t help that either. No one talks about the food in Amsterdam!!


Unfortunately because of a mistake I made we only get one full day in Lucerne and then we are off to Lyon the next day so tomorrow will be a full day of exploring!




Going to try an amp up my daily journal posts but wifi is so hard to come by! Hope everyone is doing well <3

    It seems like you’re literally flying around Europe.. Why not spend more time in each place to fully explore it? Always being rushed around on the move doesn’t sound very fun.
