How far is too far to think ahead? I like to call it dreaming…….but dreams can become a reality.
It can be the smallest thing which proves to be the catalyst for future travels -scenery in a television show or the mention of a location/event in a magazine or documentary. While it is not feasible to go everywhere, some can be the basis for or incorporated into a future itinerary.
Visiting Scandinavia was one of our dreams so when I read about a train trip in Sweden, I decided to investigate further. This 6 day all-inclusive trip https://inlandsbanan.se/en/travel/tours/wilderness-train-summer sounds amazing. We would incorporate it with independent travel in Norway, Denmark and probably Helsinki and St Petersburg.
I can see from the website that this is a once-a-year trip which requires a minimum number of 70 guests but has a maximum capacity of 96. Therefore, I decided that I would contact the company with a general enquiry. I now have an email response advising that we have been added to a list of those who have expressed an interest in the 2020 trip and information will be forwarded to us once it becomes available. Time to set up an email folder for 2020 holiday ideas.
