Trains hold a special fascination for me. They are easily my favorite mode of transportation, which probably is clear to anyone that followed my Lisbon to Saigon train journey a few years ago.
On my recent two-week trip in Peru, I finally got to take my first train in South America — making it my 6th and final continent to ride the rails. The Andean Express is a luxury train from Puno to Cusco, which is about a 12 hour ride though the Andes.
As you would expect from a train run by the people at Orient Express, everything is first class on the train. Food, entertainment, service, the observation car — heck, even the bathrooms. What they don’t have any control over is the scenery, and this part of Peru doesn’t disappoint. It was 12 hours of window gazing heaven.
So, I give you my second video from this trip (check out the previous one from Machu Picchu here).
I hope you enjoy and that you subscribe to my YouTube channel, so you will be able to get new videos right when I upload them.
Great video! Love to travel by train.
Although it looks a bit more comfortable the train ride I’ve just written about! 🙂
Michael, you sir just leapt into the forefront of my favorite bloggers! I just came across your blog, and this video is so very amazing. I have a passion for travel by train, and all of my great adventures begin there. There is something magical and romantic about them. This video totally made me smile and remember all of the amazing people I met on the train from DC to Los Angeles. Thank you for this, and I will be adding you to my blogs Hall of Gnarly Travel Bloggers.
wow, this video is cool. especially the view of the scenery when the train is moving.
