One of the lesser-conventional modes of transport (London; England)

So, a debate of sorts has arisen in recent times, given the fact that our means of travelling from A to B have increased, and we can all consider ourselves travellers, in some shape or form. The subject hinges on what is more of a thrill, the experience we enjoy whilst away, or the excitement of the journey, and the events associated with reaching our destination. An obvious response could understandably be the former, as we all know an alluring destination entices like few other prospects in life, especially for seasoned and tireless travellers. Delving deeper into the issue though, in recent times, a growing sense of anticipation and appreciation has been attached to the journey itself, and so we are forever thinking of novel and memorable ways in which the journey can be executed.

Arguably, this 'subway' car combines one mode of transport with another (Prague; Czech Republic)
I'd prefer to think that any journey itself is composed of a variety of sub-journeys, and those short bus, taxi and subway rides we take whilst we are overseas are all too often taken for granted. Add to this the prospect of a transport-involving excursion (a river tour, for instance), and you've got what could be rightfully called a 'journey within a journey'. To further illustrate exactly what I am implying, feel free to share my images and video clips of modes of transportation around the world, and revel in the depth and diversity of it all. This might not even be an exhaustive list, but I can only hope it will grow in diversity as I further my travel experiences, whatever the means of getting me from A to B!
