Dream trips

Who wouldn’t want to step back in time just for a week in order to hop the Orient Express? Certainly it's high on my list of time-travel choices (where's Doctor Who when you need him?)

The photo above is a recreation of the dining car (from last year’s beautifully-restored train cars at the Institut du Monde Arabe—a magical exhibit which has stayed in my head for months.) Different rooms are dedicated to famous Orient Express travellers; my favourite was Josephine Baker’s sleeping compartment, below.
