Train Trips As We Go Around the World without Flying

The following train journeys are all part of our trip around the world without flying. Here, you’ll find some diverse train trips. When we travelled around the world without flying, we started by travelling by train from London to Moscow. Firstly, we took the Eurostar from London St Pancras to Brussels. Then the ICE train to Cologne. Afterwards, we took an overnight train to Warsaw where we changed to take a second overnight train to Moscow. Quite an adventure. We did stop off along the way too so you’ll also find plenty of city guides and tips in this section. Head over and take a look.
