Val Thorens is located in the Three Valleys region of the French Alps, and is one of the most sought after destinations for skiing. Catching the train down to resort is easier than you think it would be and is a must to try this season if you have not experienced the journey before. The trip begins at London St. Pancras catching the am Eurostar Ski Train directly down to the traditional mountain town of Moutiers pulling into the station at pm.

This requires no changes making this one of the most relaxing and easy journeys down to the mountains possible. As soon as you arrive into Moutiers the site of the surrounding peaks with their snowy tops will take your breath away. The village itself is made up of narrow streets and beautiful traditional houses and the journey from here to Val Thorens is a mere 45 minutes by taxi. We would definitely recommend this train journey down to the Alps for anyone who wants to take in the sites and culture of France. This journey also provides the ease of mind that you are travelling directly to the mountains with no changes.

In the morning you will be rising early and hopefully not to bleary brained to catch the am TGV from Paris Gare du Lyon arriving into Zurich and from here you will need to change and get on board the high speed Railjet service taking just three hours to arrive in St.

Anton at pm. This journey is a great opportunity to make the travel a part of the experience by making the most of a layover in Paris and is definitely one to try if you are looking to have a romantic stop along the way.

An Uyghur History of Turn-of-the-Century Chinese Central Asia

Oct 10, Concetta rated it it was amazing. I have known Flora Wong since the late 70's. There is so much to know about Flora and this book really tells the story not only of her life, but of history. Flora is an extraordinary woman. Due to her outlook on life and her fitness, one would never guess she is 83!

Read this book to better understand what was going on in China during the period beginning in the 30's, how one woman found her way to America, and came to build a life and family. I did not want it to end! View 1 comment.
