Despite the fact that the ticket was so expensive, I really enjoyed the journey because I was able to book my ticket very easily. I also liked the fact that I didn't have to change trains on my journey. What I liked best was that I reached my destination in the shortest possible time. The toilets and the whole train were very well maintained and clean. I was also impressed by the very good wifi, as it worked perfectly.
