Sri Lanka’s Kandy to Ella train ride is insanely scenic! Heads-out-the-train experience in 1st class? Yup! Plus clean loos.
One day in Berlin isn’t enough. But if you only have a day, see the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag and paintings on the Berlin Wall (especially “The Kiss”). We also traveled back through Germany’s turbulent times at the German Historical Museum.
Our heads spin dizzily on the Flam Railway, rated one of “the world’s most incredible train journeys,” as we take in postcard-worthy views of storybook houses, tumbling waterfalls and craggy mountains.
The luxury Blue Train in South Africa caught our eye. Sip champagne? Nosh on oysters? Watch the Karoo landscape roll by? Sign us up.
