Have you ever felt like you want to drop everything and get away from the busy life and responsibilities for a while? To take a breath of fresh air instead of the dusty city air and relax outside of the stressful city environment? That’s the time when you know you need to take a break and focus on yourself. However, as you choose a destination to travel to you usually don't give too much thought into choosing the best way to travel as long as you get there, but it might be worth a second thought. Sometimes, it’s not just the destination that you should look forward to. The journey to that destination is also part of the adventure.
When traipsing around Europe, most travellers tend to take the plane as the fastest way to get to most places. Especially as it can sometimes be the cheapest as well. However, why not do something different and take the train for a change? Travel operator Klook recently partnered with Rail Europe and has prepared some cool itineraries for travelling with train to get in the most beautiful of sights. Travelling via train also offers some perks that you might not get aboard other modes of transportation, making it the perfect example of the saying "Getting there is half the fun."
5. Environmentally Friendly
Did you know that railway transport produces 80% less greenhouse effects of gas emissions per kilometer compared to cars? Planes are not the most eco-friendly transportation as it requires a lot of fuel to take off. As such, trains are the ideal transportation choice for everyone especially for those who want to help reduce the greenhouse effect.
This is especially ideal for the nature lover, who might love exploring the beautiful and historical Tuilleries Garden or the Bois de Vincennes in Paris, France. In Zurich and Lucerne, Switzerland, you can visit the highest train station in Europe, the Jungfraujoch, and experience an unforgettable boat ride on Lake Lucerne. Let’s not forget about riding the gondola in Venice – a must when you are in this watery Italian city.
So pack your bags and get ready for an adventure in Europe for a different perspective and breathtaking views!
