Whoever wrote it I found it fascinating and reminded me it’s a journey I want to take.

As a boy I used to take the original “Orient Express” from Calais to Lausanne as that was the route it used to take and then carried on to Italy and finally ended in Istanbul, though I never went beyond Lausanne with it, and it was not the luxurious train we see today though it did have the Thomas Cook Wagons Lit, which I loved*.

* Do they still exist?
