I loved our 17 hours on board the Belmond Venice-Simplon Orient Express and its sister train the Belmond British Pullman. I had an idea (or many ideas) on how this trip would go, and how wonderful it would be, but I have to be honest, it was even more than I ever expected.
There is something about certain train journeys – the old-school glamour, fine dining and fabulous outfits. And copious amounts of champagne – I have to confess, that it had my name written all over it. I loved my journey on board the Belmond British Pullman.
