Riding on a train anywhere in Europe is the only way to travel. Well actually it's our only choice, we don't have a car here. But I recommend it, it's low cost, efficient and painless, well some what painless. Eight hours is a long time to kill, we played cards, read, and listened to music. I tried to improve my Free Cell percentage and Katelyn took many pictures of herself.
We ate snacks, bad coffee and I slept a little. The scenery was amazing and eight hours flew by quickly.
