Now that I’ve re-explored the world of traveling by car or by train, I want to give my views.
When I traveled by car, I had to make sure I had a good night’s sleep so that I didn’t fall asleep driving, but when I went by train, all I had to do was get out of bed and make it to the train station on time. Once onboard, I was able to eat breakfast, drink water, etc. While I could have done some of the same in the car, it probably wouldn’t have been a good idea.
While in the car, I was able to listen to the radio and sing to the music while zooming down the Autobahn. I’d have been thrown off the train if I tried something like that there.
I had to change trains twice in each direction, but was able to reach my destination directly by car.
I stopped by the supermarket with the car and was able to purchase a package of six 1.5 liter bottles of water and toss them in the trunk to be used later. All I could comfortably take with me on the train were two bottles.
I brought my laptop with me to write a few emails to be sent later and also watch a video to pass the time while on the train. That’s not avisable while driving.
I looked out the window and saw the stunning scenery of the area between Hanau and Wurzburg and took a few photos while on the train. I saw a different part of the German countryside in the car, but kept saying to myself “Germany needs a lot more scenic viewpoint reststops.
I could babble on and on about the differences between the two methods of trasnport, but it all leads back to the same thing.
I prefer train.
Not necessarily Deutsche Bahn, but train.
I always have and always will.
