    Praise for Europe by Rail
    ‘…may I prescribe a holiday in the company of two avowed Europhiles? Nicky Gardner and Susanne Kries are the editors of Hidden Europe, a magazine “dedicated to exploring European life and landscapes”. The book is an alluring combination of evocative writing (“Speed soaks up detail as poppies in the fields of Flanders become a red haze”) and practical advice on topics such as luggage: “We judge a small torch, a corkscrew and appropriate plug adaptors to be essentials.” Subtitled The Definitive Guide for Independent Travellers, it is also a history of Europe in 50 train routes.’  Simon Calder Review of Europe by Rail, The Independent June 2016.
