One of Jess’s dreams has always been to travel on the Orient Express on the overnight journey from London to Venice. And when the opportunity to do just that presented itself, well, obviously we had to take it!
Personally, other than the Agatha Christie novel, I have to admit to not being an expert on either the Orient Express or luxury train travel. I mean, you’re talking about a guy who camped around Australia in a tent living on canned food for a year.
But still, I was willing to make the effort and journey in five star luxury to see what that was like. Plus, we were holding our wedding ceremony in Venice, and this seemed to be the way to arrive! In today’s post, I want to share with you some of my thoughts of our experience riding the Venice Simplon Orient Express from London to Venice.
