On my blog I used to have a series called Rail Postcards – a kind of digital postcard I would send to the European Commissioner for Transport every time I was stuck somewhere because the trains had broken down. It was a bit of fun to highlight a serious issue – to be able to present to a political decision what the situation is like on the ground.

For the #CrossBorderRail project I am going to revive the idea – but with real postcards!

On each of the 40 days of my trip I am going to send 2 postcards – one to the European Commissioner for Transport, Adina-Ioana Vălean, and the second one to the person who funded that day’s postcard in the crowdfunding of the project.

By the end of #CrossBorderRail, Vălean should – post permitting – have a nice stack of postcards in her office that will explain to her all of the problems of cross border rail in Europe!

Would you like to receive a postcard from the trip? If so please fill in the form!
