This means you can easily travel the distances between cities and countries quickly and easily, without the hassle of driving, and without the hassle of airports and their multiple levels of absurdity and security theatrics.
Not to mention you get leg room, great views, can show up 5 minutes before the train leaves, have zero baggage fees, and at no time are you required to stow your laptop, or put on a seat belt.
Whats not to like?
So naturally I chose to take a train from Mainz to Zurich.
So come along... I am going on an adventure!
This one looks like a model.
Once I got to Zurich, I spent the next 9 days or so exploring Switzerland (mostly). The next few posts will be all about that experience. I got to take many more trains, which was great as I an convinced that they are one of the best ways to travel... you just need to remember to take all your luggage when you get to the end (tho in Switzerland it may just work out OK)
See you next post!
