Traveling by train is often one of the best options if you’re looking to make a short-to-medium-distance trip. Instead of dealing with the nuisance of airport security, the airplane boarding process, and the uncomfortable nature of plane travel, going by train can really make your life easier.
Here are some of the advantages that train travel offers to those who are making a journey.
It’s definitely cool to see the land from up high while on a plane, but let’s be honest: it’s often cloudy and difficult to see anything of real importance. While traveling on a train, you can observe the landscape up close and personal, seeing how it transitions between different areas. It’s a show in and of itself!
Bored of sitting in your seat? Well, you can get up and head to the train bar/dining car for a change of scenery and for something to snack on and drink! That’s certainly something you can’t do while driving somewhere. Many trains even have huge, panoramic windows in the bar areas.
The Ability to be Productive
It’s impossible to get anything done while driving because you’re, well, busy keeping the car on the road. While on a plane, you have to pay ridiculous Wi-Fi fees in order to stay connected. On a train, however, you can use mobile data or even free Wi-Fi in order to stay connected and be productive while traveling!
