Trains Around the World

You can probably tell by now that I love trains. I have had the opportunity to journey on trains all over the world, from scenic trips through the Swiss Alps and Peru jungle to spending nights on long distance trains in the US, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. Later this year my husband I will take a four night train trip across Canada, from Toronto to Vancouver, which will be the longest train journey we have taken to date.
