On a similar theme to the Overland to Oz posting, I came across this interesting article on Slow Travel.
This is one of the really hard things about living on a small island on the edge of civilization. You're not going anywhere easily without boarding a plane. I really love travelling by train and if we were based in the UK the channel tunnel would certainly be the way to go for me. According to some, the train is about to make a big comeback. I hope tunnelling technology is too! How far are we away from Wales?
