After the weekend trip to Budapest, it is time to recover.
I took a train on my way back. It is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to travel. But the AC wasn’t so strong compared to planes or busses. I wasn’t the happiest person in the world. And I dreamed of the rain I experience during the first day in Budapest.
This is the thing with political push to adopt trains. There must not only be the message of how good it is for the environment, but also the financial support to make the train trips more pleasant.
If there aren’t enough investments in the train systems, to be more comfortable and faster, all those efforts to reduce our carbon footprint will become just a wishful thinking.
This is another take away. Don’t listen to political messages, see what those politicians are actually doing.
Maybe we need more politicians to travel with trains to actually see a positive change in Europe.
