Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

And from Barcelona Zaragoza, Madrid, Valencia, Sevilla and Cordoba.

Toulouse and Seoul are 5800 miles apart (in a straight line), which the TGV would traverse in 29h. Definitely exciting. I think it'd be a matter of preparing oneself to stay up for 48 hours (with stops, and not in a straight line) watching Eurasia go by.

Personally the day it's made, I'll be the first to kick and bite my way onto the train.

For such a trip I'd wager that travelling by train would be so much more fascinating. The scenery would be better experienced. That said, flying can be wonderful too, but half of the time there are clouds, and beyond mountain ranges nothing really stands out.
