This was my second train quest. You can read about my first train quest here: https://dominiksymonowicz.com/2018/10/18/doms-32-hours-on-trains-in-the-uk-challenge-report-part-1-introduction/
This challenge is called “2 homes, 1 European Union”. The idea is simple to travel from Wroclaw (my home in Poland) to Rickmansworth (place in the UK) by train to appreciate going freely in Europe. The main focus was to try DB trains, and I was looking forward to checking it out. More about it can be found in Part 1 (check table of contents).
It is a report where I reflect on what was an incredible little adventure for me. I am glad that despite some technical issues with booking tickets (I will write about it in the future) I manage to do it and I had great fun.
In shortcut. I woke up at 3.20 am, caught train at 5.08, and I arrived at London at 19.57. I could be at Rickmansworth 20:45. I decided to stay on the station and buy a gift for my wife, so in the end I arrived 22.06 but this. My official trip time was 16hours and 7 minutes.
I split report into a few parts, so it is easier to read.

I hope, you will enjoy this read.
