Not in the picture: my English accent when I speak Italian
I joined Deutsche Bahn as a sleeping car attendant in 2011 while at university. Here I rose to the position of conductor and spent the next five years running night trains from Munich to Rome, Venice, Milan, Paris and Amsterdam.
Every evening I welcomed passengers onto the train, kept them safe during the night and woke them in the morning in time to get off.
I liked this job so much I stayed on after finishing university.
Now I work for a small train company that runs special train services all over Europe.
I started this blog in 2017 to help more passengers get around Europe by train with more ease and without paying too much.
