    What's your favorite mode of transportation? Why?

    Trains. They’re so comfortable, and I love the sound of the wheels clicking on the tracks. But the best part is that they often take you through scenic countryside, away from the main roads and commercialism.

    Do you prefer traveling alone or with a companion? Why?

    Both. When I travel with a companion I have more fun, but traveling alone always builds my confidence. And I meet a lot of wonderful local people and other travelers when I’m on my own.
