I already travelled by train just short distances. I think that an hour at the most. But travelling by train is very insteresting because you can enjoy a beautiful places many times and it's good to think about your life.

I have not traveled by train yet because there is not any rail way to carry passengers in our county but I hope to do this very soon.

Last summer, I took the TGV - high speed train to go to the French riviera. It took only 5 hours from Paris to Saint Raphael and the travel was very comfortable! It was a nice train journey.

I like travel by train. I quiet often take the train and last Friday I had a bad experience due to problems at a station I never arrived to my course.
