Train information

Ever since I was little, I have loved trains. Finally I took baby steps to living my Orient Express-style dream. Across the border in a comfortable seat, with my own little picnic and the most breathtaking views, I took the train from Zürich to Milan. The plan was to read but with views like this, it’s impossible.

Milan was hot, hectic, delicious and unbelievably lovely – everywhere you look, there’s something elegant and photo-worthy. Architecture, food, sunsets, perfume shops and even public transport is pretty.

Most of all, the journey was part of the pleasure. No queues, security checks, sardine seats or harassed fellow travellers. Just a quiet journey of three hours to another European city. Turns out I didn’t need a picnic, as there is a restaurant car. But a panino and Prosecco never goes to waste.

Already planning my next trip. Jx
