Ok, I’ll admit it, I do love a great train journey.  I’ve travelled through Northern India by train (the longest journey was a non-stop 36 hour trip), through parts of Russia taking in Moscow’s infamous, beautiful underground system and overnight trains in Finland.  I’m not a train spotter in the slightest but I do find it relaxing sitting in a train taking in the scenery.

For a 20 minute ride, this is not to be missed.  The train travels from Chamonix in the French Alps, up to a hillside hotel, Montenvers.  What the journey lacks in in-time, it certainly more than makes up for in scenery.
