Yes, I like travelling by train because I have several reasons for that. Firstly, I can sleep during trip and walk on the train which I cannot do on the car. Secondly, because of my health. During a long trip I cannot seat for a long time on the car and move or sleep and that's very difficult for me. And the last, It's cheaper than other transports ))))

I traveled by train when I was a child, it was a magic experience!
Thanks a lot!

Thanks, it's so interesting.

I love to travel in train,I haven't had any problems.

I love this process.

i have not travelled by train before and i do not like to try, i like travelling by buses it is exciting and comfortable

If I have a long journey, i will take a reserved seat beside the window. That is because the scenes along the way to my destination coming into my eyes would makes me chilled out. I would like to listen to music with earphone and watch the beautiful views then meditate.
The most bothering problems on my journey are the train delay and the train crowded with people. Once the train delays, everything scheduled should be postpone that is really annoying. Sometimes, in order to let something on schedule, you have to take the train in rush hour, which represents that you have to squeeze in the car where you can hardly move and would touch others by your skin.

When I got on a train somewhere in Europe, the toilet was large. Wow....
Perhaps I didn't lock the door tightly and when the train banked slightly, the sliding door started to open!! Oops!!
I rapidly approached the door to handle!
It was just before/after------- I leave the rest of the story up to your imagination!!

lol. Hilarious experience!

I only prefer the train for long trips in my country; otherwise I like to use my car. Sometimes the trains are delayed or it happens that the bathrooms are not very cleaned.
