I rarely take a train, but the last time I took one was this summer, when I went back home after a week at the sea.

I usually take a train a few times a year. I like intercity, short distance, trains. They're cozy for me and they give a chance for people without car to get to the seashore.

I take train during the school holidays. I usually take the down-south line in Sri Lanka. The line goes along the coast. I like to the hill country line which is also popular in Sri Lanka. There are many tunnels and breathtaking views.
