Until I saw this article on "10 Unique Transport Modes Around the World," I never thought to add up all the different ways I've traveled. We're not talking planes, trains and autos here. More like camels, elephants and tuk tuks.
So I was amused to see what the writer had experienced and to learn that I'd traveled five of the 10 modes she mentions. I can make a list too! And I'm sure you can.
And, though I haven't ridden atop a bamboo train in Cambodia, as the writer has, I have ridden on the roof of a train in Ecuador.You can read more about the train ride through the "Avenue of the Volcanoes" on my website. Here's one little piece:
But the important question here is, what different modes of transportation have YOU ridden. Ones other than the ones listed in the "unique transport" piece? I'm going to add pony trekking in Iceland, snowmobiling in Canada and inline skating in the Netherlands.
"The train took us to the Devil's Nose, a steep portion of the ride where the tracks zigzag repeatedly to enable the train to make it down the steep slope. The mountain walls were so close we could inspect them for cracks."
Who's got others?
