For those who prefer to travel by train or ship, you must bookmark this website. It was created by Mark Smith,
an Englishman and career railway-man. He has worked for railways or train stations for most of his life and loves
to travel by train and boat. He has ridden on trains and ships all over the world and now, he’s created a site to help
passengers do the same. His site provides info on travel within the UK and Ireland (including train times and fares)
and shows how to travel from the UK to destinations all over Europe (including London to Cyprus). There’s info on
trains in Asia, Africa, America and Australasia. In case you’re wondering, he came up with the site’s name because he always
traveled in Eurostar’s first class. He would reserve seat 61 (in cars 7, 8, or 11) because this seat is one of a pair of individual
seats with a table that actually lines up with the window. It’s knowledge like this that helps him achieve his goal of ensuring that
people can travel over land comfortably and affordably ... even to places where you might have thought that air was the only option.
