Oscar Wilde once said, “If art is to have a special train, the critic must keep some seats reserved on it.”

And you might wonder what constitutes a special train? Is it a jolly joyride from one city over to the next? Or would you much rather think a special train takes you more along the lines of amagical journey through Scotland

I would choose the latter because if I’m going on a train ride, I would want it to be an incredible experience!

But those incredible experiences and magical journeys add up, don’t they? Not everyone can afford luxurious ‘special’ train rides presently, especially with how gas prices are shooting up and the costs of goods for simple household staples.

So, what do you do if it is on your bucket list to ride on your own special train to go on your magical journey? Well, for one lucky person, getting that train ride of a lifetime could be as easy as winning one!

Two train Conductors & Hosts for those who win a Ride on the Orient Express

If you could travel by air, road, or track, which would you pick? I would pick by track as well because it’s not every day you see the countryside from a train’s perspective. It’s much different from a highway laid out before you or fluffy clouds around what you can see from a 1×1 window. A train ride itself is an experience everyone should do at least once in their life.

And this is exactly why the latest giveaway from Omaze is truly incredible. When you enter theWin the Trip of a Lifetime on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express contest, you’ll travel on the luxurious Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train from Paris to Venice and back, while enjoying those majestic views including the Italian Dolomites! You may even be able to pop into a Paris Speakeasy while you’re there!

On top of that, you’ll be pampered by your own personal butler, the sounds of your resident pianist and the culinary indulgence of world-class cuisine! Now it really doesn’t get much better than that…or does it?

Yes! Yes, it does! Because not only do you get your special train ride of a lifetime and personal butlers with classy music and flavorful dishes, but you’ll also be spending two nights on the VSOE and six nights at 5-star hotels in Paris and Venice, with time to still explore the culture and the world-class charm surrounding it, like the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and pasting your eyes on the gorgeous architecture surrounding the City of Water.

The flights and 5-star hotels are included in your trip too!
