2020. Corona. Travelling is a different game. Yet our Fernweh acted up too often. So we arranged a train trip to Germany and Austria. Specifically to Leipzig in Saxony, several spots in Bavaria and returning home with ÖBB‘s Nightjet from Innsbruck in Tyrol to Brussels in Belgium.
Over the years we have visited many railway and transport museum. As a Christmas gift, let us offer you an overview. From the worst to the best.
After our magnificent first big rail trip around Scandinavia the year before, my best friend suggested we went to discover Switzerland by rail in 2013. He was inspired by his aunt’s trips to Switzerland and always wanted to go there himself, of course I couldn’t say no as the country spoke to me too. So…
Some two years after our first visit to Utrecht‘s Spoorwegmuseum (Dutch Railway Museum), Danny and I returned. We took along Ruben, who was new to the museum.
In November 2019, Danny and I travelled to Ljubljana in Slovenia for a weekend.
Noblesse oblige. When in Ljubljana, Danny and I visited the Slovenian Railway Museum.
Danny and I aren’t post or mail enthusiasts, but we are rail enthusiast. So we decided to ride the Mail Rail in London.
If all goes well, Train World will operate steam train between Brussels and Mechelen (Malines), reports Gazet van Antwerpen. The service could start in 2020.
I like trains. That’s no secret. So Oriol took me to Vilanova, south of Barcelona. There’s the Museu del Ferrocarril de Catalunya or Catalonia Railway Museum.
In the month of April I made a week-long trip with Michel, discovering German aviation history in Friedrichshafen, Danish Railways History in Odense and navigating the sea to discover some Estonian history in Tallinn.
