and explain why this was such an unforgettable trip.

One journey I went on that was very long indeed was my trip around Europelast summer, travelling by train.

I went for a whole month, going all around Europe from my home country ofEngland east until I got to Eastern Europe, and then back in a loop to Italy. Iwent so I could see the rich history and culture of the continent, which waspractically on my doorstep. I felt it was high time I embarked on a long trip toexperience some more of the world and its people.

Travelling by train I kept myself occupied by looking out of the window atthe landscapes as they flashed by. The countryside was mostly fields, but once Igot to the Alps then it became beautiful. There were towering cliffs of rockswith fast-flowing rivers cutting between valley walls. I could even see a castleon one of the hillsides. Each city I visited brought a new style of architectureand type of person on the street. I saw medieval cottages, baroque cathedralsand shabby, modern apartment blocks. The landscape varied with each country Icame to.

I’ll never forget this trip because it was the first time I was travellingwithout a home base. I went with a good friend and we spent a lot of timetogether. We had memorable conversations on the long train journeys about live,society, religion... all very deep stuff. I also had the chance to see some ofthe world’s most famous sights like the Eiffel Tower and the Dom cathedral inCologne. It was fascinating waking up on a moving train knowing that the nextstop I got off at was going to present me with a whole new country with manysurprises. It was a unique experience.
