Remember the days of steamer travel? The romance of trains? The caravans of long ago? At GoNOMAD, we know that getting to where you're going is part of the adventure of every journey.

Sure, there are always plane tickets, but why not join Marie Javins, GoNOMAD'S TRANSPORTS Editor, and explore an alternative form of transportation? Take a train, rent a bike, hop a camel or sail the seas on a freighter, ferry or sailboat, and make getting there half the fun.
