I’m sitting in first class on the Thalys train from Paris to Belgium. They had a great sale and the tickets were actually less expensive than second class. This has been a great trip and I’d highly recommend upgrading to first class on your next Thalys trip.
Here’s the difference:
- Free wifi! I’ve finally caught up on some blog posts I’ve been meaning to publish
- Electricity at each chair for the laptop
- Reclining chairs and more leg space
- Continuous supply of food and goodies. Just as I thought the food had come to an end they began handing out pink sugar nipples.
Many times you can upgrade to first class for around 10 euros. So look for that possibility and go for it. It’s dang nice.
