Advance! Keep things simple and get a Paris to SJPDP ticket. The Paris to Bordeaux section is crazy fast, you're in for a treat (if you've never had a go on these ultra-fast trains). I'm not sure what the current status is, but the very last bit of the journey may be a replacement bus service. Not to worry though, it's all super slick.Is it best to book tickets far in advance or is same day possible?
One thing I find useful is to start a Google doc (or sheet) and c/p all my ticket info into it. It becomes my itinerary and I can note what is booked (like my flight to Lyon and train to Le Puy) with times and transfers, and what is not booked (like the commuter train from St. Exupery to Lyon). And I put in useful addresses that will help me when I arrive. I share the sheet with my partner so he can know the overall plan.Thank you. This planning stage can be overwhelming
