I don't know where you have been looking, but there are fast trains to Germany and it takes much less than 6 hours to reach the border from Paris. Paris-Aachen (a stop on the way to Cologne, it's a small town but with a lot of history) is 2:40 with Thalys and Paris-Saarbrücken (maybe not a top destination but it's in Germany!) is 1:50 with either TGV or ICE. ...

from Paris to London and then take euro star from London to Germany I would advise you to study a map of Europe. You will see that the train route from London to Germany goes through France so taking a train from Paris to London makes absolutely no sense. You are going in the wrong direction. The Eurostar goes from London to Lille and then to either ...

I can't tell if the is a theoretical or practical question. To make a fair comparison one must know where in Germany and it appears money is no object. From a practical perspective-I would look at flying. For example one can fly from Paris to Berlin non-stop in 1.5 hours for as low as $60 USD on Germanwings. Google maps is your friend.

Once a cab driver told me if you sit behind him that means you don't want to talk. If you sit diagonaly in the back, you want some chating, and if you sit in front with him, you want to talk.

My intuition as a Londoner was that this was absolutely fine, but then I had a moment of self-doubt and worried that maybe I'd been being rude in not talking much to cabbies all these years. So I sought out this ethnographic study of cab drivers: Inside the Mind of a Cabbie (RSA) and that has confirmed my impression that the time and space are basically ...

No it is not rude. I've lived in London most of my life and travelled in hundreds of black cabs and can assure you that cabbies really do not care what you get up to in the back of the cab -- as long as you pay the fare, give them a decent tip and don't spill food/drink/bodily fluid.

I've been in a similar situation many times when travelling during business hours to/from meetings - or, often, when going to the airport - where I've had to jump in on conference calls where I knew it would be for the duration of the ride. I usually excuse myself before the call, letting them know that I'm going to be on a call (even if I'm not talking). ...

Found a case of someone else who successfully did this: They had a signal failure / fire and after a bunch of delays, missed their train at King's Cross. Long story short, they applied at the TFL station for a 'delays on the underground compensation form', in which the supervisor puts your surname and details of the delay, and they sent this off, and ...

I can't speak for France, but the London situation is this: School half term holiday Different areas and different types of school (state vs private) have slightly different dates for their half-term holidays (commonly just referred to as 'half term'). So the whole country doesn't go on half term holiday all at once. Probable impact (as a Londoner this ...
