Tips On How To Handle Long Train Rides

Today, we have another guest post, this time from Outreachmama. This guest post "Tips on How to Handle Long Train Rides" is written by Wendy Dessler.

Enjoy The Experience

While there can be a lot of beauty in traveling alone, if you’re hauling your own luggage around, that beauty will be metered with fatigue.

It can be easy for your luggage to get lost in the shuffle when you’re traveling during the holidays. Here are some tips to make holiday travel less arduous; but one thing worth considering is that you don’t have to haul your bags around as you go from one place to another. This is especially good news for those who have larger moves ahead of them!

Now certainly, if you’re traveling on a train, losing your luggage will be less likely. It stays on the same train throughout the journey! But it could be expensive, depending on how much you have to bring with you. Additionally, some may have access to it that you would prefer didn’t.

My personal statement is that traveling on a train today is a bit of a novelty in the USA. Nobody travels by train anymore. They usually take a vehicle or a plane. But on a train you can work, or watch movies, or read a book throughout the journey. In Europe is quite different - people do have common practice to travel by train a lot, especially in between countries. You can watch the landscape go by and meet new people in the varying passenger cars.

A New Kind Of Train

The anatomy of a modern passenger train may take several forms, but for longer journeys, you can expect to find several different kinds of cars. There will be “first class” cars, there will be luggage cars, dining cars, cocktail cars, observation cars, and on some trains even a smoking car—that will depend on your region, though.

If you’re on a really long trip, you want to get to know each of these cars. Trains are great to travel in because you can get up and move around. That said, if you have a bag with you the whole time, you’ll be worried about how it sits—especially if you are traveling alone.

Surprising Possibilities

If you really want to enjoy your travel, why not send your luggage on ahead of you? The No.1 Student Shipping Company, UniBaggage.com, are: “…experts at shipping students’ effects around the world. We make worldwide luggage delivery convenient for University Students, Holidaymakers, the Forces, and Seasonaires.”

Consider this: if you work from a computer, during a ten-hour journey you could conceivably work through your backlog and arrive at your destination without anything else to drag you down.

If you plan it right, you can send your luggage on ahead of you while you enjoy all the many things a train has to offer. Bring a book, or watch a movie on your tablet. Meet that pretty young person in the bar and get to know them better—you may even be going to the same place.

Look at the scenery. There’s a passenger train which goes through Montana all the way to Glacier National Park. On its observation car, you can see some of the purest breathtaking vistas in all of North America. Many other trains have similar routes that are likewise astonishing, and can change your view of the country in certain ways.

If you’re a photographer, you can catch some truly beautiful shots—the kind you wouldn’t be able to find any other way. Some trains will go through a gorgeous mountain pass where for as far as the eye can see, no sign of humanity is visible.

However you spend your time on a train, there are new experiences to be had, and convenience to be enjoyed. In some cars you can even take a nap in the provided bed. So if you haven’t tried traveling by train, maybe it’s time to give it a shot!
