All my travels had conditioned me to see train journeys as a means to an end. As I boarded the Bernina express, little did I know that I was to come across an exception! The Bernina express is nowhere close to the quintessential train journeys we all might have undertaken at some point in our lives. It is one of those few train journeys which would leave you with a feeling that it ended too soon! No wonder it features among the greatest train journeys of the world. The Bernina express takes a four-hour long route replete with breathtakingly beautiful landscapes on a backdrop of the Alps, a plethora of stunning lakes and vast meadows.
