This year I will be arriving to Brussels by train from Germanu. The journey starts now. See you all at #FOSDEM!
FOSDEM, train travel
There are many good reasons to travel by train even when we are pretty much in the “jet age”. On top of comfy seats, onboard WiFi, being able to see the landscapes, and the convenience of not having to spend time going to and from the airport, it is the most efficient way of moving people around: the balances between energetic cost per passenger, speed, amount of passengers per journey, and convenience are unrivaled.
Train travel helps save the planet 🌎🤗🚅
@garrett I'll add a couple of reasons more:
- Many trains have groups of four seats around a table. Great to travel with a group. Bring out some board game or a deck of cards along!
- In Europe a ticket for a long distance train usually includes riding the local commuter trains in the origin and destination areas. Sometimes this covers other local transport (tram, bus, metro) as well.
- Sleeper cars in some overnight routes.
...and probably I'm still missing some
