Lately, the only kind of traveler I’ve been is an armchair traveler.
Though it can’t compare to feet-on-the-ground traveling, it does have charms of its own. You can comfortably dream, make plans for numerous destinations,
and pack your mental bags of your favorite traveling clothes.
Considering possible European destinations, I thought perhaps traveling by train would be an interesting way to get from one country to another. So I’ve decided to add the rails to my travel list.
There’s something inherently romantic about train travel. It conjures up images from old movies and novels of old-world elegance, a slower time.
A time when journeying by train meant handsome dining cars,
and the romance of traveling by night.
Traveling by train allows for contemplation and enjoyment as the world passes by outside,
and long stretches offer the perfect opportunity for reading and writing —
before you sit up in your seat or hang your head out the window as you near your next destination.
Hopefully, 2022 is the year to get out there and start seeing the world again.
Until then, …
