This map shows how far 5 hours train travel will get you from any city in Europe and it’s fascinating stuff
We haven’t been on the train as much as we used to for reasons we won’t need to go into here, but we do so much prefer it to any other form of transport.
And this map is getting us right back in the mood, showing you exactly how far you can get in five hours by train from any city in Europe.
It was posted on Twitter by @_benjamintd and we can’t stop messing around with it.
Isochrones 😍 ! This map shows you how far a 5h train ride will take you, departing from any city in Europe.https://t.co/6F4dJ80N87

What an inspiring visualization. I want this for code, where I can see how far changes to one part of the code can take me. https://t.co/VUfRCh83mQ
