As the world becomes more environmentally and fiscally conscious, train travel continues to become more popular as a greener mode of travel—though we already saw it coming last summer. Regardless, we just hope that you keep traveling and that all your great content comes rolling in.
Jumping the rails this week, the popularity of a train station review showed that perhaps gas prices are still driving people from driving.
Likewise, on the blog, alternate forms of transportation proved to be popular, despite all the training required.
Vietnam makes its first appearance as a top destination. If you look below at the monthly stats, you can see it was helped in small part by Ho Chi Minh City. Coincidentally, HCMC was a featured journal destination in the first Picks of the Week email in November. And sharing top honors with Southeast Asia as a popular destination was the urban rail hub of the Midwest, Chicago.
Moving from train couplings to a couple with a train, this week’s top photo was inspired by a celebration on the first day of this month.
And without further ado, here are top contributors and destinations from last month.
