Streetwise: Riding the rails
Sara Bossatti, retired teacher: My husband and I traveled Europe by train from Romania through the Ukraine and ended in Krakow, Poland. It was beautiful with lovely accommodations. The customs border patrol would always come by and bang on our door to check passports. Those countries arenít as open as western Europe. It was a great trip. We also took a train to Prague and Budapest. Trains in Europe run like well oiled clocks, so itís very easy to get around that way.
