A little bit of continuation on the subject of travel from last week. My absolute favourite way to travel is my two feet. That obviously has its limitations But after walking, it’s a toss between trains and boats. The fast train links between cities in France are simply fantastic. And I suppose I am a bit of a closet train enthusiast.
Flying has its conveniences but also comes with a hefty environmental impact. My body always needs a few days to recover after a flight. I swell up like a balloon. And let’s not get started on the damage luggage handlers have caused to my instruments over the years…
I did often think about the idea of organising a tour, where I would mainly travel by train. Obviously, with a full band setup, that isn’t a practical option. But maybe a solo tour someday in the future.
What’s your favourite way to travel? And do you think about its environmental impact?
