I usually travel by train for work, but I think that plane it's better because it's faster than the first I mentioned. Yes, unfortunately in my country almost every day, trains have some delays.

I usually travel by train but I prefer to travel by plane because it's faster than the first one.

Hi everyone! Yes! I love to use the train as my favorite transport. Once traveling from Amsterdam to Germany, the dutch train was too late so I couldn't reach my connection to the next train...and was the last one at night. So, I spent the whole night until the first train at early morning. Now, here in México, the train is not a common mean of transport. Regards!
