I’ve always wanted to travel on the Orient Express so after reminding the doctor of the above episode we took off! We boarded in Istanbul – destination, Paris!
We were seated in the luxurious section of the 1920’s dining car.
The anticipation of afternoon tea was heightened as we saw “The Tardis” on our reserved Orient Express table card. The Turkish “Rose Petals & Black Tea” that had just been purchased in Istanbul was being steeped for us. Its wonderful aroma wafted through the air from the spout of The Tardis.
Jelly Babies waited to be offered….
As the train pulled into Paris Gare de l’ Est my heart was filled with gratitude to The Tardis for bringing such fun to the imaginary and the real journeys and tea times we’ve shared these past six weeks.
Cheers and Happy Sipping!
