Romancing the Rails

Orient Express 5The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express has been the source of inspiration for many.
One of the oldest and modes of transportation can often be found at the heart of a great romance. The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express has been at the center of many such affairs.  Luxurious and legendary, these train voyages have been the mode of passage for royals, celebrities and spies.
Honeymooners and even murders have plotted their ways through the cinematic drama of the fabled Orient Express.  But, most agree, this train trip is far better than any film and you can play the starring role in this tale of romance.
