Rail Europe: Train Travel Plus A Eurail Pass Give Away
Europe bound? Use Rail Europe to help plan!
There is something about train travel in that I love. I think it’s from hearing stories from friends or watching movies as well as being able to watch landscapes as you head towards your next destination. It’s something that I have been enamoured with since I was young. While train travel is not that popular in North America, I was able to experience riding trains in Europe on my round the world trip. I was not able to ride trains in every country but I was able to experience the trains from Spain to France, France to Belgium, Belgium to the Netherlands, and within England. And today lucky readers…Rail Europe is going to help you with your future travels!

What I loved about the trains in Europe were their speed and efficiency. Many of the trains I rode were high speed and I could be in another country in a few hours. As someone who is in my car all the time, it’s so nice to leave the driving to someone else, especially in foreign countries. While I was riding on the train I was able to read, catch up on sleep, or get on my laptop (sometimes there was even Wi-Fi) and do some work. I know it’s not possible for everyone to travel slow, but taking my time and enjoying the journey and scenery is amazing. With train travel, it’s always easier to get to train stations since they are usually located in the city center. Airports tend to be outside of the city and not only that but you have to factor in the time to get to the airport and security clearance. Sometimes with plane travel, you can be at the airport up to 3 hours or more in advance. Travel by train also makes arriving at your destination easier since you’re already in the heart of the city. Many train stations are connected to public transport so you can get in and out to your destination in a snap. And as a fan of architecture and design, I love the European train stations. They are so stunning!
