Train trips can end up taking longer than driving, though.
    Oh, waaaaaay longer than driving--that's why I suggest the sleeper car. You're not just stuck in a seat, you can stretch out and read, watch something on your ipad or whatever, or lay down and take a nap if you want. It's an adventure in and of itself.

    When I used to take the train to college, they never ran on time. However, there was a bar car and a smoking car, so I spent long hours talking to random strangers on the journey. I had a lot of interesting conversations that way.

    He has a chronic illness that often makes life painful and he drops out of or declines from activities because of it -- same difference. I don't see based on your previous threads, complaining how your husband never does anything with you because he cancels at the last minute because he doesn't feel well is a good leap to talk about international travel.

    If I were you, I'd save up for one big international trip to another country. Here are some tips to travel on a budget:
    - Use [Register to see the link]
    - Research all transport options
    - Use local transport instead of luxury or tourist options
    - Book ahead
    - Stay out of season
    - Use a budget hotel chain, hostel or Airbnb
    Hope my tips help you budget your trip this summer
