Enjoying the journey, not just the destination!

Imagine majestic snow-capped mountains and verdant pastures carpeted with flowers passing by your window, as you travel in comfort on some of Europe’s most scenic railway lines, inspiring you to explore a little further once you reach your destination.

Or, perhaps the scent of sizzling foods are enough to tempt you to sample mouth watering new cuisines as you stroll around the colourful markets of Asia, and the distant sounds of jazz music emanating from a local hole in the wall, drifting by on the breeze, will entice you to discover the musical heritage of America.

Rail travel is becoming ever more popular, as people discover the freedom it gives, and the new destinations it opens up. Railbookers, (020 3780 2273) are tailor made rail experts combining scenic rail journeys with flights, hand-picked hotels and a great range of excursions. They have an extensive portfolio of holidays and city breaks to Europe and beyond and believe passionately that rail is the best way to travel, because the journey is very much part of the holiday. You travel through the countryside not over it, with the flexibility to stop off en route to see more of the dramatic landscapes and vibrant cities along the way. Their tailor made holidays are all for the independent traveller – no groups or escorted tours, meaning you can enjoy your holiday at your own pace.

One of their most popular holidays, Essential Galicia, demonstrates just why the train beats the plane! Starting in La Coruna you can explore the culture and little-known towns on the Atlantic Coast of Spain and Portugal, as you journey through the North-west of Spain, to Porto. For those who want to relive the golden age of rail travel, holidays aboard the luxurious carriages of the Eastern & Oriental Express are a once in a lifetime experience, and, for a truly immersive experience in Asia, a tailor made journey in India truly inspires. Maybe an epic adventure across the USA, from bustling New York to laid-back L.A. is more your thing or a simple city break to see the tulips in Amsterdam is all you need.!

Whatever your dream destination or adventure, why not take the train? Combine multiple destinations quickly and with less stress, and enjoy the journey, as much as the places you visit. You don’t have to start in a particular place on a particular date – Venice, Florence and Rome can just as easily be Venice, Bologna and Rome or just Bologna and Florence.
