THE JOURNEY: THE FINE ART OF TRAVELLING BY TRAIN
The Journey presents a varied selection of extraordinary train travel opportunities from around the world.
The book presents the interiors and exteriors of different types of trains, their routes and their defining character.
It takes the reader on a journey to breathtaking canyons and romantic landscapes, recounts adventurous travel stories, and describes the development of well-known trains such as the Napa Valley Wine Train and the Venice Simplon Orient Express.
The book also depicts the many other aspects that contribute to the whole experience of a successful train journey: the architecture of old and new train stations as sites for grand emotions, pictures of passing landscapes and travelling salesmen, advice from experienced train travellers on the right reading material, suitable snacks, recommended stopovers, and how to optimise luggage.
