When you are eventually in the air, then flying gets you there quickly. But flying has
all the romance of a fried egg and you did notice the word eventually! Train travel is
were it's all at
I have this site for train travel throughout the world, to show you, if you dont
already know, that travelling by train is an adventure, can be very romantic and a lot
cheaper than you think.
I have travelled all over the world on trains. In the Army. The 25 years that I
wouldn't go in a plane and so on.
What I have found out is that Train Travel is far superior to flying.
I decided as a hobby to create this site for others to perhaps think, yes I'll have a
go at this.
And then get the bug.
Try Europe by train. It beats flying and Flying Time in most cases. You get to the
centre of a city, not 20 miles outside. You get comfort, relaxation and more, much more.
It's now May 2007 and the details of all train operators in the world are now on here.
Not bad as I started around February. If you can help with any photos of trains or
journeys be most appreciated. Also if you want to use Eurostar and the like please go via
this site. I then get a small commission which helps to keep the site up here and also
gives me a chance to get more stuff on. It is the same price whether you get your tickets
via me or the operator.
I am not putting timetables on as they are liable to change.
I am going to start on Images next.
Travelling by train is a far better way to travel for comfort, room, scenery, fellow
travellers and it's even enviromentally friendly. Travel by train can also be a holiday in
itself with the opportunity to see so many more cities. You can sleep on board and get up
the next morning in a new city. Spend a day there and back on the night train for the next
city that you choose..If you do decide to spend longer in one city you only need to book a
room for that night.
A lot of people will not fly for varying reasons. Terrorism. Waiting at airports.
Weather delays. Checking in 3 hours prior to fly time. Some just don't like flying. I am
one of those. I much prefer to travel by train.
Travelling by train opens up a brand new world. I travelled from UK to America by
train. Then from New York.to Chicago then Los Angeles. Wonderful. Exciting. You never get
stuck in snowdrifts in Kansas in a plane. Or see the massive Kansas plains covered with
steers. You don't step off at Dodge City. Travel by train through the Rockies. Your eyes
are always being captured by so many wonderful sights that you will never see unless you
travel by train. Amazing. You must do it.
There you have just part of it. People tell me they read some of the articles on this
site and how to travel by train throughout the world, and are thrilled just by them. I'm
extremely happy about that. I say to them just do it and it gets even more thrilling.
Something else you may notice on your train travels. People actually get to talk to each
other a lot. They don't just sit there staring. Everyone has something to say. Ideas and
clues to pick up.
I should add to train travel. Ferries as well. Some areas you cannot reach without a
little time to cross over some stretch of water. The Greek islands. Spain to Morocco
spring immediatly to mind. All part of a journey by train. But you can travel the world by
train and ferry. The last part getting over to Australia is somewhat tricky but were
there's a will there's a way. Freighters, Even maybe charter ships. There's a challenge
Till next time.
Better still travel by train for a couple of days. Class it as a holiday. You''ll get
