How to Enjoy Traveling by Train

There are all kinds of different ways that you can travel when you decide to take a vacation. One way to experience a vacation is if you travel in a train. It might not be the best way for everyone but if you are looking for a way to travel in a leisurely manner, want to see a lot of the countryside without actually driving it yourself the this could be the way to go for you. There are a few ways that you can enjoy train a lot better and have a great way to enjoy your vacation.

Before even beginning the planning for you trip you might want to consider talking with other family members or friends who may have taken a train trip before. You could also think about joining a chat with other train travelers and find out what this type of travel is really like and you should be able to figure out then if this is the way you really want to go.

When you travel by train you will find out really quick that the old saying that “traveling is a journey and not a destination” is extremely true when you travel in a train. It's important then that you are not just thinking about getting to your destination but realize that the trip there will be filled with lots of interesting things to see and experience.

When you do decide to book your train trip, no matter where you are planning on going, it is important that you plan your train trip a few weeks a head of time, especially if you are planning on reserving a sleeping berth. This is very important if you plan to travel during the summer months.

It is always a good idea when you plan to travel in a train that you take along different ways to help amuse yourself and a companion. Bring some books, playing cards, board games that are travel versions and your favorite music for listening to while traveling.

If you are the kind of person that has trouble sleeping at night it might be a good idea to bring some sort of sleeping aid with you as well as ear plugs because trains can be noisy at times. Also the movement of the train and it's occasional shifting which can be abrupt can cause problems for some people.

When you are on the train, you will find that this is a good way of meeting new and interesting people, however; make sure to respect their privacy. For example if you see someone sitting a lone and just staring out the window is more than likely willing to have a little friendly conversation that the person you see intensely reading a book.

Another good thing you can do is get yourself a journal and keep a fun travel journal of all your experiences, this could be something fun to read at a later date. It will help you keep track of how you feel about your experiences and what you see a long the way.

When there are train stops, don't stay on the train, you don't want to miss out on a little adventure. If the layover is for a while make sure to visit little shops or cafes nearby the station. Or just take a short walk around just to take in the atmosphere.
