Almost kidnapped in Paris
« on: April 16, 2016, 07:16:36 PM »

From a good friend of mine:  Arrived in Paris to high security and some dude tried to kidnap us at the train station 5 mins after arriving. Got away and undercover cop raced over asked what happened and hightailed it after him. Was surreal like a bloody movie. Paris is a feast to the eyes but high alert. Everywhere you go military have machine guns pointed at you as they check your bags and pockets and scan you for explosives. It is unbelievable. Scared shitless to start now it's just an every day thing. Last full day here tomorrow and then off to London the next day.

Her first stop was Budapest. The streets were full of tanks and soldiers.

Sounds like war is in the air but we're not sure who the enemy is yet..

Thanks for commenting, Larkin. Such a shame they are pulling all these stunts in France. Makes me a little concerned for the Tour de France.
