One Step Closer

One Step Closer

Excitement building. Today I ordered my Eurail Pass. That’s how I found my way around Europe four separate times back in the 1970’s. I am looking forward to sitting back and watching the countryside pass by me. I only wish it were as inexpensive now as it was back then.

      That will be when I am not walking or hiking.

    What a great way to travel. I love the photos. Are they from your travels in the 70’s? I wonder how different it will be for you this time.

      I just searched for a few European train photos on a search engine. The longest trip I have to make is 8 hours between Luzern and Bolzano. The other rides are shorter. Back in the 70’s I remember a 23 hour trip from Granada to Barcelona in Spain, and there was the all nighter standing in a crowded aisle from Nice to Rome. I don’t think I would want to repeat those particular experiences. Oh yes, and the shared sleeping car with the man who snored all night long like a raging thunderstorm from Venice to Vienna.

    When do you start it?

    Now I’m sure the butterflies are about to be set free. You’re about to make dreams come true. That must be satisfying.

      Continuing to train and tie up loose ends as the date approaches. As things fall into place, I feel that this has been the right time and the right plan for a return to Europe. Satisfying yes.

      Continuing to train and tie up loose ends. The way things are falling into place it seems that I have chosen the right path and the right time. Satisfying yes.

    nice photos!

    • Rosemarie May 19, 2013 at 5:46 pm #

      Thank you but I got them off of online train brochures. I will have my own soon. I have enjoyed visiting your blog.

    Your photos are lovely and the prospect of going through such beautiful countryside is both romantic and exciting. 🙂

    • Rosemarie May 21, 2013 at 10:35 pm #

      The trip of a lifetime. Most likely my last trip to Europe.

    I also had unforgettable trips in the 1970s thanks to Eurailpass

      My Eurail Pass for this trip just arrived in the mail today. It brought back so many memories of those earlier trips.
