93 hours, or close to 4 days spent sitting in a train since I came back to Europe at the end of May. No commuting, just traveling, going places where I actually wanted to go. Compared to doing the same with a car (and I never drove for over an hour during the whole summer), I saved time by being able to do stuff while traveling, I saved money, I reduced my share of carbon dioxide emissions, and I got to spend a good time with my fellow travelers!
Here are the details, if you care about them:
Lausanne - Heidelberg: 5h Heidelberg - Zurich - Heidelberg: 8h Heidelberg - Lausanne - Zurich - Heidelberg: 13h Heidelberg - Lausanne: 5h Lausanne - Zurich - Lausanne: 6h Lausanne - Locarno: 5h Locarno - Munich: 8h Munich - Budapest - Szeged: 11h Szeged - Vienna: 6h Vienna - Munich: 4h Munich - Lausanne: 8h Lausanne - Geneva - Lausanne: 2h Lausanne - Geneva - Lausanne: 2h Lausanne - Geneva - Lausanne: 2h Lausanne - Geneva - Lausanne: 2h Lausanne - Winterthur - Lausanne: 6h
