Portuguese railways on Street View

Traveling by train has always been some kind of special. And now, thanks to Google's Street View, you can travel through some of Portugal's railways without even having to put your foot out the door.

The portuguese train company (CP) has partnered with Google to capture 360º imagery of some of our railways, from the north of the country to the south, allowing anyone to enjoy virtual train travels that will show you just how varied Portugal's landscape is:

This definitely is no match to actually coming to Portugal and experiencing it for real, as there's no way you can enjoy the warmth of portuguese people or the taste of our regional cuisine looking at images on your screen - but it can be the thing that may help you decide "this is it, I'm going there!"

If you do come and happen to pass near Porto, be sure to let me know, as I'll be happy to give you some pointers. :)
