It's a strange sensation, stepping of a train after such an effortless cross-border voyage. In contrast to flying, it feels like you've hardly left your place of origin.

Stuart Forster

I've often wondered why rail travel provides more opportunities to converse than air travel and I've concluded that much of it has to be linked to the fact people have more space and sometimes sit facing each other during journeys. Seeing the historic Belgian city of Namur through the carriage windows, the dense forestation of the Ardennes and the skyline of Rotterdam prompted conversation among the people with whom I was sitting.
