If being humble, kind and calm is on your ‘to-do’ list then travel more. As French novelist Gustave Flaubert said, “Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”
International Rail is at your service to help you leave the tiny corner that you have occupied and explore the abundance of beauty that Mother Earth has to offer. Besides being affordable, flexible, comfortable and convenient, your train travel journey with International Rail would be fascinating as well.
Here are the top 3 places that deserve your undivided attention:
Turkey is a unique country that offers the best of Asia and Europe. Be it the capital city Ankara, cultural & financial hub Istanbul, ski-town Bursa, beautiful ruins in Canakkale, or the Sufi town Konya, the Eurasian transcontinental country is an explosion of colorful culture. Train travel in Turkey is far more economical and faster than even bus travel! With InterRail Turkey Pass that starts from just £55, train tickets would end up being even more reasonable and affordable.
