A five hour train ride is kind of long and not exactly a lot of fun. But what about one that last 50? It’s over faster than you would imagine and I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Living on a train for multiple days, meeting people and leaving the dining cart asking “Same time tomorrow?” Is unlike any other kind of travel. It never gets boring. And suddenly, a 30 minute stop in a town you’ve never heard of is a highlight in your day. With a little luck you might even score some smoked fish and a beer. That july, we spent 10 nights in trains.
