    A high-speed zip across Europe by train
    Last winter, when Kelly, my teenage son, and I rode trains for a total of 50 hours across France, Germany, Britain and the Low Countries on a frenetic two-week trip (journalistic research for me), we never waited long or walked far to make a connection....
  • First-timer finds that there might be something small cruises
