Remember how much we loved travelling via train? The satisfaction of just sitting by the window and looking outside at mother nature in motion. Oh, what a bliss! Then we all grew up, two days long train journeys converted into a few hours of flight. From wanting to travel via train endlessly as children to hoping for the flight to land as soon as possible, we all grew up.
