This US train enthusiast is Peter Kerpedjiev, who did significant research and collected data from Swiss Transport Authority. The research and work of this Harvard Medical fellow amazed the world with the fascinating results. The research conducted by him also proved that Western countries have a better planned and implemented network, and the Eastern countries have to do a lot of catching up.

Peter used statistics from Swiss Public Transport system 

The maps produced by the US train enthusiast revealed that it’s Berlin, Madrid, Paris and London offers the best train connection. Similarly, it also showed that train networks in Sofia, Riga and Podgorica offers fewer trains. In fact, the rail network from Paris is incredibly well planned and travelers can reach Ireland, Southern Italy and Scotland within 24 hours.

The Harvard Medical School fellow, Peter extracted information and statistics from Swiss Public Transport System. In an interview, Peter explained that he wanted to know the destinations which were easily accessible by train. The results amazed Peter, and he was stunned by the incredible rail connectivity available all over Europe. In another interview he also stated that approximately half of France was accessible within four hours by a single train from Paris.

This also shows the coordination between the various railway systems. Kerpedjiev, created these beautiful isochorme maps to illustrate the incredible railway network connecting different points around Europe.

These maps also illustrate road maps to showcase the time taken to travel to different points in car. He also created maps showcasing the public rail networks to state the time taken for walking to platforms and stations. With the assistance of Swiss Public Transport API he was able to showcase the travel times for various cities.

In an interview Peter stated that he got his motivation and inspiration from an isochrome travel map of Vienna dating 1881. He was impressed by this map, and wanted to update the concept. After he decided to plot travel maps by train, he realized that contour lines would be ideal for presenting the information. He considers Europe to be the best in terms of the numerous travel options it offers and the train connectivity system which he considers implausible.

5 do’s and don’ts in Travel photography

Travel photography
People love to take photographs while travelling so that they can keep it as a remembrance for the future. But there are some do and don’t step to be followed while removing a beautiful snap.

RULES WHERE ONE SHOULD FOLLOW ARE:

Firstly always ask permission before taking any photography of any public places especially the markets stalls. It is really easy to get caught up in the beauty and excitement of being somewhere new and seeing new things. So it is best to practise to ask someone before taking a picture. If they are saying no don’t worry just say thanks and move on.

People usually love to wake up late in the morning when on vacations. But they forget that sunrise and sunset gives the best light no matter what your style of photography is, you need light.

When the sky is cloudy tourist tend to feel very upset because of the bad weather. But remember in broad daylight it filters out harsh sunlight and give you much better photos.

Always keep safety in mind. Don’t pressure yourself to get the best and the most daring photos. Travel Photography is stunning in sometimes the simplest forms, so no need to hang off the edge of a cliff.

If you are travelling to somewhere completely new do some research first to make sure you are aware of the don’ts for that specific location .Follow the rules carefully because of your safety.

Go to a popular location at unpopular times such as early morning before the crowd rolls in, where you can really enjoy your sightseeing with minimum amounts of tourist.

Do be aware that a selfie stick can also act as a weapon .Use it carefully and responsibly.

Don’t worry about getting the perfect shot. It takes the fun of adventure away. There will always be another sunset and sunrise and another new street around the corner.

Don’t ignore the signs in Museum or sacred places stating photography is forbidden. Respect the request.

Always be considerate and courteous. It is easy to block paths, create pedestrian jams and get in the way. Therefore operate with efficiency and purpose to get the shot you want without disrupting anyone else.

Do brush up on local customs and traditions before you get snapping .So that you are aware of the cultural differences.

Don’t put yourself and others at risk to achieve a Stellershot. Always be aware of your surroundings and put safety first before you.

Finally make sure you spend at least half the time at those pictures taken by you. Also take a look at the scenery around you without looking through a screen. Capturing memories is important but so is enjoying the moment.

6 Popular Visa Free Destinations for South Africans


Reunion
Come March next year, and we can expect a set of reforms for the South-African tourists visiting Europe. New Zealand, however, has the exact opposite plan. From Nov 22nd, tourists from SA cannot go to New Zealand directly without a visiting visa, that would take up to 6 weeks for processing and NZ $650 for the same. This is said to be the result of increasing number of tourists were stranded outside the borders of New Zealand when they were refused entry. According to a few travel agencies and tour operators, this would be one of the main red signs for visitors to the island country.

For the tourists who only want to be accepted wherever they go, we are compiling a list of destinations you can always go to and feel at home.


Ireland
A travel agency in South Africa, Trafalgar, has disclosed that they had received a huge number of tour requests for Ireland in 2016 and hopes that the case this year won’t be different. When they had simply promoted Ireland as the visa-free destination, response from the public was very positive as they didn’t have to spend time or money haggling in the visa paperwork process. Apart from all this, the Irish offer a free extend of the stay of a visitor up to 3 months and this divulges a warm image of the nation. South African tourists can relate incredibly well to Ireland as a place with all they love – Music, Fun, Pubs, Guiness, Sport etc.

Reunion Island

Being a part of the European Union, Reunion Island will give off the real French flair along with some exotic tropical laid-back experience. An island full of French citizens and the currency being Euro tells us that this is nothing but miniature France. If you fly by Air Austral to the place, it’ll give you a nice preview with a super-friendly French crew. A good plus is that you don’t have to apply and obtain a Schengen visa if you’re a South African citizen.

Seychelles

The 7th most common tourists to this island are South Africans, according to a survey taken in 2016. Increased number of flights would make sure that the trend continues this year around. Seychelles has tourism as one of the key factors of its economy and its sun-filled, exotic holidays are no match for any other place that requires you to pay for visas and wait till you get them. Visa-free travel is indeed a huge incentive for potential travellers of the island.

Mozambique

One of the top getaways for the SA tourists around December is Mozambique, to which Fly Blue Crane airline is planning affordable flights in the near-future. This will pique the travel interest further, and trips from and to Johannesburg will become more popular and not to mention, more common.

Thailand

Even for tourists with some volatile Rand in their wallets, Thailand would remain a cost-effective destination. With many options for spending the vacation, Thailand offers great experiences with great islands and its relaxed beaches. Being visa-free, it avoids all the hassles with paperwork and makes for a peaceful and quick escape.

Mauritius

The breath-taking island in vicinity for the South African people is Mauritius, a small island with beautiful sights for honeymooners, solo-travellers as well as family vacationers. Since there aren’t any visa requirements, the tourism has picked up recently with different packages for various needs and budgets.
