Seeing as I've been talking about my travels recently, I thought it might be interesting to list where I've travelled to and how I travelled:
California, family holiday when I was 7 - flew
Poland - archeology dig (when everyone else I knew was at their graduation ceremony) - ferry and train, 48 hours of train as I remember...
France - conservation working holiday - ferry and train and bike
Malawi - two years VSO (UK Peace Corps equivalent) - flew
Zimbabwe - holiday when living in Malawi - bus through Zambia, 48 hours of bus with 5 hours stuck in Lusaka bus station. We missed the bus back and so had to fly...
Botswana - holiday when living in Malawi, train from Harare (Zimbabwe)
Germany - several trips, usually with ferry and trains.
Austria - train from Germany
Amsterdam - usually ferry, unless then going on through Germany in which case I have flown sometimes
Spain - exchange trip, flew
Jersey - conference and holiday - flew
Italy - conference and holiday - flew
Scottish islands - numerous visits - ferry, train, local buses, school buses and hired cars.
I've occasionally flown to Bristol for work reasons as the train takes far too long to be justifiable for work purposes. I flew to London with a colleague once but generally take the train to London as that train is speedier in real terms than the flight. I try to avoid flying for environmental reasons, but also I enjoy seeing the scenery from a train or a bus. I like birdwatching from the deck of a ferry and seeing island scenery - an overnight ferry with a film, a couple of drinks and a meal with a nice cabin to sleep in is a very civilised way to travel, I think.
