The other day a friend was asking Feli whether I was always taking the plane to see Thomas at the Loire, i.e. flying to Paris and then taking the train. So far all my travels to the Loire have had the following itinerary:

8.31 a.m. – boarding the ICE to Mannheim
1.27 p.m. – changing trains in Mannheim
1.42 p.m. – boarding the TGV to Paris Est
4.54 p.m. – changing trains in Paris
5.37 p.m. – boarding the TER to Amboise at Gare d’Austerlitz
7.17 p.m. – arriving in Amboise and getting picked up by Thomas
7.30 p.m. – aperitif at Thomas’s

The journey back to Berlin starts in Amboise at 6.23 a.m. and ends in Berlin at 5.30 p.m. The whole trip (return) costs between 100 and 200€ in total, depending on when you book the tickets.
