Enjoy the moment to see the country

“We can take a night train to Athens,” said my friend.

“No, I prefer to go during the day so that I can see the country out the window,” I said.

While I understand that night trains can shed some bucks on travel expenses as it takes away one night in the hotel, trains are more than just a means of transportation.  I think of trains as an amusement park ride.  They allow me to discover the incredible phenomena, such as construction workers building bridges, architecture of the homes, and mountains.  Every country has their own unique landscape and taking a train is a great way to explore it.
