BootsnAll’s Indie Travel Challenge 2012: Week #12 Train Travel

 

BootsnAll is one of my premier go-to sites for travel related information.   For anyone contemplating a RTW (round the world) trip. This is the place to start.    In 2012 BootsnAll will be issuing one challenge/task/subject each week in 2012 for bloggers to write about.

Week #12

What we want to know this week – the question we want you to answer in your Indie Travel Challenge blog post for Week 12 – is why? What is it about train travel that captivates the imagination of travelers in every corner of the world? What about it makes the word “romantic” so apt? Do you have a rail experience that perfectly captures why we love trains so much? Or are you one of the people who actually avoids trains whenever possible?

When I left for my current trip; my first leg was via train. I wrote about it in a post called And So It Begins

I think the post above explains part of my love for train travel. During my current SA trip; we have had the pleasure of a couple of train trips. If your looking for inspiration for train travel check it out: The New Worlds Most Dangerous Road

There really is nothing like viewing the world from a moving train.
