  The Chatter Box : Welcome and Introductions
Hello from Finland :) by nastyinhere on 9 May 2006 11:49pm
Warm greetings to everyone here :) We, meaning me and my gf really enjoy Palins expeditions and travels...and one of the encouragements we obtained from Palin was TRAIN travel! We both share the fact that train travel was never our cup of tea but after watching Around the World in 80 days we saw to it that we travelled all over Finland thru Trains :D Anyways thanking you all for reading and for your kind attention! Heips, Moikka, Shubhetcha..mixture of finn-bengs greetings! :D

Well hello. It is normally fun taking the train through most places.

Welcome, and I love trains too. Most of them, anyway.

Welcome to the site! I travelled a lot on trains in the U.S. and Canada when I was a child (back at the dawn of history) and it was wonderful. Unfortunately, train travel in the U.S. now is absolutely excrutiating. Sad.

Yes presently train travel would be boring considering the speed and the train one is travelling thru. But if I was to look around each and every station and make notes how the lifestyle of an ordinary station master in his ordinary life...BRILLIANT :)
I have not come across of Michaels song about Finland :) Im aware though of his visit to Finland in Pole to Pole expedition :D
