Paris – Eurostar Bomb Scare

Well my last day in Europe and as it turns out my most eventful day……
My Eurostar train from Paris’s Gare du Nord to London (so I can catch my Qantas flight back to Sydney) has been delayed!

French police arrive….
And after a lot of hushed conversations in French…. we’re told that there has been a bomb scare and the train will be delayed while they investigate!!! Yikes!!!!!
So we wait… and wait …. and wait….
It’s going to be touch and go to make my London flight.
And finally after an hour’s delay the train is given the all clear. Apparently a WW2 digger left an old unexploded armament on the train after attending a commemoration ceremony. It’s harmless.
But will I make my flight in time?
