Looking to explore Switzerland, I was riding in a high-tech train. A bright green meadow passed by, then a crystal-clear lake and a grass covered mountain silhouetted against a bright blue sky, all framed in the panoramic windows of Switzerland’s GoldenPass Express.

I’m doing something in Amsterdam I’ve never done before. On a sunny day with a breeze sweeping across the water, I am riding on a ferry.
Our visit to Berlin began in a rainstorm. Arriving from Amsterdam by train, Berlin Central Station (“Hauptbahnhof”) was packed with travelers.
