I like traveling by train but not very often. During my journey sometime I had problem because I over tired and slept.

I keen on traveling by train. It’s a comfortable way to go around in my country. The tickets are very cheap and the trains are always go on time. I haven’t had any problem whem I travel by train in Ha Noi in Viet Nam

I love travelling by train. It is the most comfortable way of travelling for me. I can't remember I ever missed a train, the bigger problem here is that trains are often delayed. Now I only use train rarely, since I usually travel with 3 little kids and our dog. It's really difficult to get on the train with all the kids and dog and bags, though there are always nice people who want to help :)

I like traveling by train. In my country In Georgia tarins are comfortable and they never late. So you can enjoy your journey.

I go back to my hometown once a year by train in our Tet holiday. It's very terrible in these day because there are thousands people in each train, and you need to buy ticket 3-4 months before your journey. The price is also increased multiple times higher than normal (normally 3 times)

ı used train when ı was a student in eskişehir in turkey. ı studied economy at anadolu univercity. the journey took about 5 hours. ı was enjoying.

I live in Guatemala and unfortunately, we don't have trains here but we have something called "TRANSMETER" but it's just a type of bus transport and we don't have to buy tickets, what I can assure certainty is that it's tiring to get on them in the rush hour, especially when your day has been so tiring.

I like this but I have never travel by plane. It's a dream for me. I hope it will be fabulous. But i have travel by car at Easter. It was so difficult because many people choose to celebrate Easer with their family in inland town. And in this situation, you can wait on the station for 7 to 8 hours.

I have never take a train i took only the subway
