This is probably one of those moments in life, for me, where you question the advancements of the time. A moment where a middle age person stands in awe of the technological achievements of his day, barely able to comprehend them and then rejecting them outright. I'm just not sure I'd jump at the opportunity to ride one of those things.

Why? what worries you?

So far I've only used high-speed trains on the London-Paris-London line but it was a perfectly pleasant journey. Also quicker than flying there.
