Holy Moly! I’ve been mesmerized by the legendary Orient Express train for the longest time. Have you heard of it?
A few years ago, I remember reading about how glamorous it was and ever since than I’ve been daydreaming about taking a journey on it. You board in London and throughout your journey you touch Paris, Venice and travel through the Alps before reaching Istanbul.
This stunning little series of nostalgic snapshots from the 1950s by Jack Birns perfectly captures the glamour of the post-war holiday scene. Ah, just imagine sitting in one of those art deco dining cars, eating something delicious while getting utterly lost in the sweeping views of unspoiled landscapes all around. Epic, don't you think?
P.S: Remember this tree train tunnel in Ukraine?
P.P.S: Tons more travel goodness.
