Do you like to travel by train?

It is safe and not too much expensive, but I prefer other ways of transport. I accept to travel by train only when there is to go in a city that is easily reachable from the train itself and I do not need any car in that city. Another reason is that Italian trains are not very nice and clean.

I like trains. When you're not in a hurry, they can be a nice, relaxing way to travel. I've traveled by train several times. I love looking out and watching the scenery. It's nice.

While I was in France, I enjoyed travelling by train because it was inexpensive and because it allows you to see a bit of the countryside. I haven't taken many long train trips, though, and none overnight. I think I would prefer to fly in those cases so as not to waste time travelling when I could be site seeing!

I like traveling, it can be any mode of transport because I personally believe that journeys are better than the destination. If you travel and have a look at the surroundings you are crossing you would see the nature created by the God and even the surroundings created by man. You spiritually feel a lot and learn a lot of new things in journey. Give journeys an aesthetic approach and you will love journeys even if you train service and other modes of transport are poor.

I am from the UK where the trains are very expensive and not very safe - for example, a lone wpman would not want to travel on a train late at night here. However we were in Germany last week and found the trains to be excellent. They are reasonably priced, in good condition and run on time. Also we found the trains in Spain to be good too and also quite cheap. It is great to be able to use the train to avoid bringing cars into the city centres which are usually too crowded and of course, you don't have to look for somewhere to park.
