The Road Taken by Train

In the often-quoted and immortal words of Robert Frost:

“I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
Despite the many complaints I hear about the Czech company České dráhy, I love taking the train in CZ. They’re usually pretty comfortable and they give great views of the villages around. The first time I arrived in the country, I took the train from Prague to Tišnov, and I wrote down the name of every single place we stopped with the intention to come back and explore. Now I know that most of those places weren’t very important, but taking the train that cuts across the Highlands and South Bohemia to or from Prague is enough to convince you of the universality of Czechia’s greenness, made up of forests, fields and village gardens.

No matter where you take the train, though, it’s so relaxing to look out the window and zone out, letting your travel dreams flit back and forth, running your eyes over sunny valleys, makeshift ice skating rinks on frozen rivers, or dirt paths where normal people are walking their dogs enjoying the wide open world.
