Friday Favorites: Riding the trains in Europe

I am one of those rare folks that enjoys flying, but I like riding the trains in Europe even more. Enjoying a glass of wine while watching Tuscany drift by out the large glass windows is just delightful.

My favorite train journey on my recent trip was the Nightjet from Milan to Munich. It was a 12 hour overnight trip. My compartment reminded me of the Hogwarts Express. I had it all to myself and the seats folded out into beds.

Picture of the Day: Piazza del Duomo

This piazza in the heart of Milan is definitely the center of action.   I had just popped up out of the subway and the Duomo was right there in front of me.   I went inside and took a few pictures and looked around.   It was really cool.   rk
