If there was any railway station that cause me grief, it was Invalides. I had bought day passes at Nord for 10 Euro each day. But for some reason I couldn’t exit with the ticket I had. I went to customer service by a gate. I explained the situation. Told the guy I wanted to get back to Meudon. I showed him the ticket. He pointed to the gate, as he did so, the gate opened for me, he told me which line I wanted. Oh, if it were that easy the following day.
