Travel Skills Special: Riding the Rails in Europe
For many travelers, the pleasure of journeying along Europe's well-organized rail system is as good as the destination. And the skills it takes are easy to learn. Rick's "Travel Skills Special" breaks the basics down to these video clips — all filmed during his latest train trip across Europe.
- Train Travel Overview (3 min 31 sec)
- Scheduling Stopovers Smartly (2 min 13 sec)
