We travelled to some pretty awesome destinations, stayed at extraordinary hotels, travelled along most scenic routes and experienced some pretty amazing activities, museums or other things to do. Here’s the best of 2019.
After the Thalys from Antwerp-Central to Marne-la-Vallée – Chessy near Paris we took an inOui (ex-TGV) train to Bordeaux-Saint-Jean. SNCF uses aging Alstom TGV Atlantique EMU’s for this service.
There is new information on the future Österreichische Bundesbahnen (ÖBB) Nightjet service between Vienna in Austria and Brussels in Belgium.
Oriol made a big effort showing me around in Barcelona. He made sure we tried all kinds of public transport in the metropolis.
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.
Some can’t wait for the next episode of ‘Game of Thrones‘, we enjoy travel videos on YouTube. Especially flight reviews and videos about train rides.
After a few days at my sister’s in Zug, I returned from Switzerland to Antwerp in Belgium via Germany. This meant taking a ICE-train from Zürich to Frankfurt and then an ICE to Brussels. To Switzerland I travelled via France and I wanted to do something else. Plus it’s a great excuse for an extra…
Staying with my sister in Zug in February, I insisted on going up a mountain. We decided to go to the Mythenregion, around the Grosser Mythen and the Kleiner Mythen. Those are mountains in the vicinity of Schwyz in the canton of Schwyz.
My sister lives in Zug. After taking the Thalys from Antwerp tot Paris, the TGV Lyria to Lausanne and staying in Montreux, I used the GoldenPass Line in Switzerland. Starting in Montreux and ending in Lucerne (Luzern).
On my way to my sister in Zug in Switzerland I stayed in Montreux, in the French speaking canton of Vaud. I chose Tralala Hotel as it’s walking distance from the railway station, it had a good price and it seemed overall nice for one night. Also, I found the name funny.
