Tourists prefer to fly because it saves them time. But TSA security lines that can last for hours, lost luggage horror stories, and annoying fellow-passengers make the short trip feel like a lifetime of misery. Go ahead then, and take the train. Choose the scenic route over the quick one and make getting to your destination part of the vacation. Relax, take in the stunning sights and explore parts of the world you have never seen before. Some people prefer the train because it’s mysterious, others because they have the time and not the money for a plane ticket. Whatever the reason, the outcome is often the same – an iconic journey.
