yes I like travelling by train and in the last three years I had been travelling more times in a week by train cause I was studying in Cottbus which is 200 km far away from Berlin where I live. sometimes I had some problems when the train didn't get to Cottbus in the time so I missed my lecture or part of it and sometimes I missed the train and had to wait an hour for the next one.

Yes, I like travelling by train, but I don't like tavel during rush hour. I had problems in the first few years. When I got in a train. I really needed to find an available seat which near the display screen for watching where I was because I couldn't understand English well even the notification was speaking slowly.

I love travelling by train because it gives the opportunity to see lots of amazing sight seeing and being able to get interacted with various parts of whenever I travel by train I feel like there are no more worries in the world...

When I was a child, I had been travelled by train. I remember I saw beatiful views but also I had been felt dizzy. But I can say I still love travelling by train.

In my country trains are not very common.

I never travel by train , just i used it inside the city.


I really like travelling by train. Seeing the changing view, being able to walk while you travel, having the chance to change your mind and stop by a different city than the originally aimed one. I've never had any real problems, but I remember risking missing my train several times. I'm not known for my ponctuality.

when I was child i had been travel once by train from Peshawar and Afghanistan, now I live in Afghanistan but here is not train,
traveling by train is also economic also can study the book as well.

many tnx from all of your helping, if you share more videos it is better.

great video and the most helpful web site ever)

I've never travelled by train before. Almost all my destination isn't on the way of the train. So it's not suitable for me. I choose the other transportation for my trips like air plan, shuttle bus or drive a motorbike by myself.
