Yes, I do. I don't remember If I had a problem travelling by train, but I had a nice time travelling by train looking at the window landscape and enjoying. I loved it!

yes , i was traveled in the train when i was a child with my family , but it was very bad journey because the train is very slow and the wither was very hot , so i don't thank that i will go like this journey in another time

I like travelling by plane more it is faster and comfortable on my opinion.
I had a jorney by train only once,and sat down in another train. This train was going to my direct,almost this time.But it was express train.Thus i mixed up the trains! I suspected that something wrong becouse my train was so comfortale,and i bought cheap ticket. Luckily i asked a passenger about train t,then i realized that was not my train. I got off the train on the next station and waited of necessary train.

I like travelling by train.once, when i reach the platform ,the train started moving.anyway i want to get in to the train,i ran along with train got on a/c compartment instead of sleeper compartment....

Where are the others exercises of this skill?

I would like to travel by train more frequentelly. we don't have several options of train station in my country because there are a lot of buses .

I have never traveled in train, but I have the hope to travel in train sometime, I'm not afraid to travel, I think that it will be a really nice experience.

Best Regards

I love travelling by train because you don't have to drive and you can read or watch the landscape. The trains can be late but luckily they seldom are cancelled.

I traveled by train once, it was nice.
