lol. Hilarious experience!

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.

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

I love this process.

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

Thanks, it's so interesting.

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

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 ))))

Oh my gosh, I sat in an wrong empty seat facing with strangers.

I do love traveling by train. It´s more easy and secure. Its used to be cheaper than fly. Unfortunatly, in the nowaday, no more. Also I feel a little bit nostalgic. I don´t know why. Perhaps, I remember the old classical movies with people sadly saying 'good-bye'.
