Rail & Road Travel

“The journey is part of the experience – an expression of the seriousness of one’s intent. One doesn’t take the A train to Mecca.”

– Anthony Bourdain

Jumping in a car or campervan to hit the open road is so exhilarating. Feeling the wind in your hair as you round the curve of the road to discover a new landscape is alluring.

Likewise, sitting at the window on a train and it traverses a mountain range or along a coastline or even through a plain is magical. The gentle rocking of the train can ease you into a meditative state (or gentle nap) as you enjoy the beautiful scenery.

If you’re filled with wanderlust there’s no better way to travel than rail and road travel.

As Emma Chase, author of Tamed said, “the greatest part of a road trip isn’t arriving at your destination. It’s all the wild stuff that happens along the way.”

The spontaneity and liberation that rail and road travel offers is empowering and the ability to be experience a beautiful landscape closeup is humbling.
