And The Winner Is…The Man in Seat 61! Traveling with Technology Part 4

image

Using websites, apps, our smart phones as well as other technological marvels has really made our traveling lives much easier.  For the past few weeks I’ve tried to share about some of our favorites.  By far the site that has been most helpful is one we’ve been using for years. The Man in Seat 61 is a site devoted to making train and ferry travel easier. The site was very helpful to us as we traveled through Africa by train.  It continues to be our go to site as we travel Southeast Asia by train.  Anywhere you want to travel by train this site will have information for you.
