Vannes-Nantes-Paris-Hong Kong-Cebu and back!!!

I just came back from my third trip to the Philippines and been a rush business trip of only four days gave me no time to see much.  The other two times, I did some out traveling but could not be possible this time. So will tell you mostly of my travel ordeals on a long voyage.

I started from home on Saturday January 13 going to the train station in Vannes with free parking behind it, and getting a train to Redon, changing train to Nantes train station 62€ . There took the express airport bus 9€ to the Nantes Atlantique Airport. From arrival headed to my one night hotel the Escale Oceania Hotel across from the airport 90€. This is the usual hotel I stayed when coming and going thru my closest decent flights airport.

Once at my departure gate in Terminal A I flew with Cathay Pacific for the first time; and it was a nice ride indeed. This is the airline of Hong Kong and I was going to the airport there for connection to final destination.

The Hong Kong airport was my first time too, but as connections were made tight, really had no time to see much of it.

The flight arrive late into the day and still needed a connection on the same Cathay Pacific airlines from Hong Kong to Cebu in the Philippines. I finally arrived in Cebu by 19h Monday January 15, and taking the hotel shuttle headed straight to my usual hotel the Best Western Plus Lex, Cebu.

This was the rest I needed to begin work the next day. The hotel site is here: https://www.bestwesternlex.com/

The hotel is very nice and central to all. I spent four nights here at BW Plus Lex Cebu a repeat visit to the hotel.

On my way back left on Friday January 19 by 20h on Cathay Pacific same routing back after been deposited at the airport by a company driver.  From Cebu airport going back to Hong Kong, needing a bit of running to catch the flight until to find out it was been delayed 20 minutes!  Again at Hong Kong taking Cathay Pacific again by 23h35 local time to reach Paris CDG Terminal A .

This is a smallist nice airport full of shops and restos nice to come early and enjoy the shopping.

Finally on Saturday January 20 from CDG T2A transfer to TF2 using the same blue bus line again. Here I departed by 10h10 on Air France back to Nantes Atlantique airport. Again taking the Airport Express bus to the Nantes train station.

Here I had my lunch out of airports on my popular Café des Plantes just out of the Nantes Nord train station section and next to the jardin des plantes. Great friendly service always, and fast. The menu of the day is always good and great quality/price value. I had  my veal pipettes with fries in a mustard sauce, leffe Belgian beers, and expresso coffee all for 15€.

From the Nantes train station took a TER train to Rennes train station, and here change to another TER to Vannes. Finally picking up my car to drive home arriving on Saturday by 19h!

  1. How dare business get in the way of pleasure!!!! Still, I believe you are retiring this year, so maybe next time you can make this a more enjoyable and sociable trip. Save travels.
