5 Things I Love About Rail Travel

5 things I love about rail travel. Hey Guys, I hope you are well. How are preparations for Christmas going? In this post, I want to share with you 5 things I love about rail travel. I love travelling, and besides travelling to different countries by air across the globe, I love to travel by rail. Some people travel by boat, bus or car for a weekend getaway. I prefer rail travel at all times, unless if it’s cases like overnight trips or an international destination. I hate travelling on a long journey. However, trains are very relaxing and the fact that you have the flexibility to move around on the train makes the journey more fun.

5 things I love about Rail Travel

Sightseeing

I love the fact that I get to look out of the windows and see the beauty of Scotland while travelling on the train. We travel all the way through the countryside and see the beautiful green lands, forests, landmarks, islands, rivers, horses, cows, farms, the list goes on. It is very refreshing and the fact that it moves quite fast, you don’t really have the time to take pictures.

Flexible

On the train, depending on how far your journey is, you do get tired of seating down and may want to stretch your legs or go to the toilet, or even have a chat with a friend. The fact that the train is on one level, it makes it easier to move about.

Clean

I don’t know about you but I do not like messy services. Whether I travel by air or car, if I am paying to use your services, then the least you can do is to keep the place clean and tidy. Particularly, the toilets. Luckily, I have not experienced a messy train or toilet on the train. It has always been clean and tidy and refreshing. The toilets are what I am surprised about the most. When I travel by bus, I always try to avoid using the toilets. It is always messy and stinking. We used the bus to travel down to London earlier this year, and I really hated the entire trip. From the Services to the Toilets, everything was a total disaster.

Relaxing

Trains have a way to make you feel at home. You can pretty much take along anything you want on the train. Whether that is a blanket, travel pillows, snacks, drinks, magazines or laptops, pretty much anything you want you. I love the fact the seats are spacious with plenty of legroom between the seats to have a nice stretch.

Speed

When I am on the train, I just love the feeling of its movement. The speed, the energy and the excitement, just makes me like I am running on a race track like Usain Bolt. It also makes the world feels like it is moving. You know that feeling of when you set goals, you want to start but don’t know where to start from? The train makes me feel like I’m moving towards achieving my goals rather than sitting down and just thinking of ideas.

One More Thing

I would like to add one more thing about rail travel. I have travelled on First Class, Business Class and Standard Class. To be honest, there’s no different in these different services. Maybe more comfortable seats, and better customer services but that shouldn’t really matter. No matter your class I believe all should be treated equally. At the end day, it’s the standard class that enjoys rail travel more.

I hope you enjoy this post. Do you travel by rail? Share your experiences with me in the comments below. Catch you later.
