For some people, a vacation starts when they arrive. My love for train travel has everything to do with the fact that the journey becomes an integral part of the experience, not a means to get to the start.

In the past years, I’ve had the chance to travel some very unique railway trips:

Train Travel – Trans Siberian Railway

In 2016, I traveled from Brussels to Beijing, creating a video, a book and an art-based event for Delaware Consulting. During 10 weeks, I traveled the Western European railroads, the Trans Siberian and the Trans Mongolian trains. Along the road, I interviewed artists and brought back some of their works. On an event in Brussels, we presented the artworks, shows the mini report of the trip and the unique book that I created exclusively for the 150 guests present.

Train travel in Vietnam

Later, I traveled in Vietnam on the Reunification Express from Saigon to Hanoi. During the Tet (new year), and surrounded by families with children on the train, I traveled from Saigon to Hanoi. A little over 36 hours, but not a dull moment.  More…

Train travel in Thailand and Malaysia

When I wanted to see the new year’s fireworks in Kuala Lumpur, I traveled by train from Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur.

Train travel in Malaysia towards Singapore

At the beginning of 2017, I took the train from Kuala Lumpur to the border with Singapore.
