I like travel by train. It is easy to travel in this way but sometimes abroad it is hard for me to understand the announcer, what limits my freedom

I like train. I use this when I travel in Singapore and Korea.

Hello. I’m from Spain. I like travel by train. I think it is my favourite way to travel.

I used to travel by train when I was a student. The problem i frequently had was the time in wich the train was coming. It was always late. Now I know the situation is much better than that.

it depends on conditions. if yoy have a good partner and the road has interactive sights i think you can have good time but if it s opposite i think it s not good idea traveling by have to tolerate this sutuation to end of way.

I used the train when I was in France!! I enjoyed it a lot especially the TGV!!!

Yes, I do. The train is a convenient transport to go anywhere.
And I clearly remember that I had a language problem when I went aboard, It is a bad memory in my life. So, I learn English in order to talk to the foreigner smoothy.

I never traveled by train before

I haven't travel by train in my whole life, so I would like to try it in the future.

Yes I like to travel by train in Ireland. It is confortable, puntual and fast. Also it has many facilities as toiletts, wi-fi, plugs, tickets online, beverages and snacks for sale. On board you would enjoy a cofee, tea, fizzi drinks, biscuits, meanwhile you are working with your laptop or chating with your friends. In my opinion, the train rail of Ireland are really nice but too expensive.
