Trains are the perfect way to truly see a country up close and these reasons will show you exactly why we absolutely love travelling this way.
You’re going to want to ditch the plane ticket in favour of a train ticket after reading this.
- You don’t need to turn up four hours before it leaves the station – airports, we’re looking at you.
- You can bring bottles that contain more than 100mls (oh the joy!) and they don’t need to be squashed into a tiny plastic bag.
- You can use your phone so you’re free to Facebook stalk as you please.
- If you’re sitting beside a particularly annoying person you can simply up and move – yay!
- You can bring your own food and drink.
- When you look out of the window you will see more than clouds and a 35,000ft drop….
- The train journey can become a holiday in itself.
