Interesting list… I’ve done a few of these areas on your list including the Ulan Bator to Moscow run and the Shinkanson from Tokyo to Kyoto.
When I left Hanoi on the train to Beijing, I shared a cabin with an Australian who was taking the train to some music festival in Germany and then on to Portugal. Instead of taking the Trans-Mongolian, he got off several hours before Beijing and was heading west through China and the “-stans” I would love to have heard about his experiences.
Wish you to complete that impressive list! Happy travel!
Oh no, why did you tell me about the train journey from Porto to Ho Chi Minh City?! Now that is going to be stuck in my head as a travel wish until I can come up with the time to do it! As it is with all travelers, I’ve been to a number of your bucket list destinations and recommend them highly, and likewise have quite a few of the places you’ve already been on my own list! Happy travels in 2016!
A traveller’s wanderlust can never be satisfied and reading blogs is dangerous stuff!
That’s a long Bucket List, I should write one. I did the train journey from Melbourne to Perth a long time ago, it was amazing.
Not jealous at all!
Fun list! A few are even on my own list 🙂
Great list Wilbur! This is inspiring! 🙂
My first ever train trip abroad went past Rotterdam (Hoek to Amsterdam), though I have never been there. Is Rotterdam nice?
🙂 I might be biased since I live and really like Rotterdam 😀 😀 Yes, Rotterdam is a nice city and a different city compare to Amsterdam. I have written several posts about Rotterdam in my blog if you wish to visit Rotterdam someday 🙂
Summer is usually quite busy in Rotterdam – many festivals and street parties..
