  •  Rode Eurostar from London-Brussels (4+ / 0-)

    Also took high speed from Amsterdam to Frankfurt. Frankfurt to Munich. IIRC, part of Munich to Innsbruck was high speed. At least it was an ICE train. Also rode from Barcelona to Antwerp. Again took high speed from Brussels to Frankfurt. Absolutely amazing. You just get on the train and go. Everything the diarist says is true.

    The ride is smooth. It is wicked fast. You can get up and walk without bothering anyone. What else? Oh, you don't have to deal with security. Yes, it is fairly expensive, but if our wages would actually increase for once in 30 years people could afford it.

    So don't cry foul about cost. It isn't the trains fault that our nation's wealthy don't give a shit about paying you a fair wage.
