Tired of airport security queues, delays and all those extra taxes and charges, Tom Chesshyre embarks on a series of high-speed adventures across the Continent on its fast trains instead.

From shiny London St Pancras, Tom travels to places that wouldn't feature on a standard holiday wish-list, and discovers the hidden delights of mysterious Luxembourg, super-trendy Rotterdam, much-maligned Frankfurt and lovely lakeside Lausanne, via a pop concert in Lille.

It's 186 mph all the way - well, apart from a power cut in the Channel Tunnel on the way to Antwerp.

Is our idea of `Europe' changing as its destinations become easier to reach? And what fun can you have at the ends of the lines? Jump on board and find out!
