Rachel Halliburton has an unhealthy obsession with The Man in Seat Sixty-One, and if given even half an excuse will be on a train rattling through new and unfamiliar landscapes. She has been a journalist and critic for twenty-five years for publications including the Financial Times, the Times and Prospect. The best train journey of her life so far has been from Hong Kong to Beijing, with the Bar to Belgrade route coming a close second. Don't mistake her for a trainspotter though: good food, culture and political intrigue are all part of the perfect holiday mix.
