Train Don't Plane in Europe

Our train tickets from Paris to Colmar, France--see arrow on map.
David and I bought our tickets last Monday, three months in advance so we got the cheapest fares, on the easy-to-use site, Capitaine  We paid €60 for two one-way tickets from Paris to Colmar, a little town in the Alsace region about 460 kilometers (285 miles) from The City of Light.  If we'd taken a plane, it would have taken three times as long and cost more than twice as much.
