I loved being able to work or read or just relax. And I saved a ton of money instead of having fo rent a car and drive myself!
A little more information, even if just signage was increased. I didnt know there may have been food available, and I was confused about which train was mine.
I rode in coach and was super comfy! Make sure to get a window seat.
