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.
