I have just been on a holiday to a Continent that has no **railway**, never has and most likely never will


(By **railway** I mean a permanent track composed of a line of parallel metal rails fixed to sleepers, for transport of passengers and goods in trains which is regulated and controlled by signals)

I did use **railway** in part of my journey to get there and to get home

Should not be difficult .......... where have I been
