TAKE A VIRTUAL TRAIN JOURNEY TO EASE YOUR BOREDOM
Let’s enjoy the ride!
Home sweet home, but it's normal if we start to feel stifling seeing the same walls, floors, and all the same thing knick-knacks every day. Traveling is obviously hard to do nowadays. But, we are fortunate to live in the mid of the digital era. Hi-tech gives us a glimmer of hope to way out; even the feels are not entirely the same.
Some museums and National Parks in some countries provide access to virtual tours, so you will not be bored at home. For the more exciting one, try to traveling by train virtually. You can enjoy it from your comfy couch and watch the scenery move that it can change from time to time. Enjoy the ride!
The Flam Railway, Norway
Norway’s Flåm Railway is considered one of the most beautiful rides in the world. Built into the mountains between Oslo and Bergen, it climbs almost 2850 feet in an hour, traveling along with one of the steepest train routes in the world.
You may not make it to Scandinavia anytime soon, but you can still experience Flåm’s beauty through Expedia’s Virtual Flåm project. It lets you explore the railway through either 360° video on your desktop or through a virtual reality headset.
You can even adjust the speed of your virtual train (the video is shot from the perspective of the front of the train). Information about local sights passing by pops up on the left side of the screen as you go through the journey.
Geibi Line to Fukuen Line, Japan
You can get a taste of the Japanese countryside as you travel virtually from Hiroshima Station to Fuchū Station on the Geibi Line to Fukuen Line. The route passes through the mountainous area of the Chūgoku region, so expect to see stunning bridges and long, dark tunnels cutting through mountains.
Sarajevo-Ploce Railway, Bosnia and Herzegovina
The Sarajevo–Ploče railway is a 194-kilometre (121-mile) long railway in Bosnia, Herzegovina, and Croatia. The line connects Sarajevo with Konjic, Mostar and Ploče.
The route operates through the regions of Sarajevo Canton, Herzegovina-Neretva Canton, and Dubrovnik-Neretva County. The route largely follows the route of the Neretva river. Passenger services along the full length of the line have now been discontinued, running only between Sarajevo and the town of Čapljina on the Bosnian-Croatian border as of January 2015.
Connecting Switzerland and Italy via the highest mountain railway in the Alps, the Bernina Express Train rises to the challenges presented by snow, ice and the steepest gradients to delight passengers with a four-hour journey of breath-taking beauty through this iconic mountain range.
Beginning in the north at Chur, capital of the canton of Graubünden and the oldest city in Switzerland, the narrow-gauge railway that carries the scarlet-liveried Bernina Express winds its way south-eastwards through the Alps, crossing into Italy shortly after Poschiavo, to its destination in Tirano.
