Orient Express – the real one

We traveled from Paris to Salzburg via the Orient Express. This was an overnight train that we boarded at 6pm so we had a little dinner in our sleeping quarters before enjoying the scenery. We were due to be in Salzburg at 5:30am and when we awoke at 6:30am thought we had missed our stop. Fortunately, even trains have delays and we were an hour behind schedule which meant we did not miss our stop. The feel of the train made it easy to sleep but the excitement overpowered that a little and L spent some time just watching the night time country side and small villages pass by. I would recommend a train ride while in Europe. I wish we had time to see Europe by rail or bicycle or car so that little surprises could be discovered along the way without having to plan actual events of things to do.
