I arrived in BdO on the 3pm bus from Grenoble. However, the journey started at about 7am from Caen. I jumped on a very full train to Paris. This was a nice train ride and since I was in first class it was pretty comfy despite how full it was.
In Paris, I had to take a metro over to a different train station to catch the truly high speed train from Paris to Grenoble. This train was capable of 320 km per hour. That translates to just short of 200 mph! It didn't do that speed the entire way, but it definately knocked the miles out quickly.
My seat was facing backwards, so I had to turn around to see what was coming. As we got closer to Grenoble, the Alps came into view. Stunning! They were breathtaking even from miles away. Of course, it only got better.
Arrival in Grenoble just before 1pm to pick up a bus to Bourg d'Oisans. The views just got better and better. Not too many photos today although I did take a few. Perhaps the most interesting at this point is the view from the deck. Here are two.
One to my front:
and the view from behind where I am sitting.
Tomorrow I pick up my bike and the first ride will include Alpe d'Huez!
