We’re so grateful you chose to explore Europe by train. Now, we're excited to launch a brand new series of stories spotlighting your incredible adventures.

 

Throughout December, we will be unveiling five inspiring stories about our travellers' journeys, one by one, in a countdown to 2024. By the end of the month, their stories will form an itinerary you can follow to experience the beauty of Europe.

Stop 1: Palermo, Italy 

 

Three months exploring Europe, with three children under the age of 15. Some parents might find the idea daunting – but Gustavo said the memories from his family’s experience travelling by train from Edinburgh to Palermo will last a lifetime. 

 

“This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know each other better, to make strong connections and bonds between you and your spouse and your kids,” he said.

Stop 2: Naples, Italy 

 

“What is your story?” A senior traveller posed this question to Amina on a train from Naples to Bologna. 

 

The man’s question sticks with Amina to this day. “No one ever asked me that before,” Amina explained. “It was so beautiful.”

 

For Amina, this simple yet profound encounter underscored the power of solo travel – the connections that can be forged by simply being open to a conversation with a fellow train passenger.

Stop 3: Marseille, France

 

Charlotte and her friends took the train through Switzerland, France, Spain and beyond during their school break. 

 

With extra time in their schedules, they decided to save money on seat reservations and take the regional train on the way from Marseille to Barcelona. 

 

Nothing could have prepared Charlotte for the beauty she saw on the way from Marseille to Barcelona.  

 

"It was the best decision I could've made," she said.

Stop 5: St. Moritz

 

Dazzled, inspired, overwhelmed by nature’s beauty – these are the emotions many travellers report feeling during a ride on the Bernina Express train route. But stressed? Not usually. 

 

Yet Tom experienced serious nerves in the middle of his journey from Tirano to St. Moritz. The reason: he was about to propose to his longtime partner, Facu, on the train.

 

“My hands were sweating so much,” Tom said, with a laugh. “I knew he would say ‘yes,’ for sure. But you don't know how anyone will react, right?”
