In my country in senegal from west Africa, i've never have a problem with the train. So the first time i took it in paris, it's because these was my friend i wasn't lost. But the first time i took the subway alone in belguim it was so amazing and exciting too. I got lost and at the end i took a taxi to get home.

Great job. It is very useful for me

Yes i like to travel by train very much but I'm fraid to enter into and exit from it


I have never had problems with this kind of transport.

Have you ever had any problems on your journey? ーーーYes, I took a wrong train on my first travel in Austria. Although my destination was in the middle of the city, when the landscape from the window changed and I saw snowy mountains, I finally realized that I was wrong and got incredibly insecure!

I do like travelling by train. Last year I had a problem. The locomotive broke down in the middle of nowhere. Fortunately, the driver could drive very slowly to the next station. Once arrived in the station, the mechanics examinated the locomotive and said it was out of order. So we had to wait for another locomotive. It took hours! We arrived at our destination with a lot of delay.
