Good flight, good landing, awful movies.
Arrived at Charles de Gaulle International Airport at 7:00 a.m., with a couple of hours to kill before catching our train to Lille. There’s a train station is connected to CDG – it was about a 10-minute walk from our terminal. You go through a parking lot, then a subway station, and down an escalator before you can get comfy in the waiting area.
And that’s when we realized that I grabbed the wrong bag from the baggage return.
Walked the ten minutes back to our terminal feeling like a royal moron. I put so many dorky knickknacks on my bag so things like this wouldn’t happen. Nothing’s foolproof. We were lucky though, the arrivals staff had my bag waiting for me. And we still had an hour before our train arrived. Feel bad for the person whose bag I grabbed by accident.
One TGV and taxi later from Lille Flandres, we are at Hotel Breughel . It's noon now. Enjoying the view of the Cathedral from our window. Looks like you could just stick your arm out the window and brush it with your hands, doesn’t it?
