All Aboard! The Orient Express
My husband received a pair of one way tickets from Paris to Venice on the Orient Express. The mysterious train is featured in the next CHANEL #5 commercial starring French actress Audrey Tautou. Just mentioning the opportunity to ride the Orient Express gathered 'ahhs' and 'wow's from my friends and neighbors. At first, the idea of eating rich food and drinking hearty Italian wine nonstop for 24 hours without really moving the body is not my idea of fun. Ok, I admit I am a tiny , tiny bit claustrophobic. I decided to enjoy the unique experience while giving me some quality time with my man plus witness first hand how people ( wealthy) traveled before google and iphones.
