Roger Collis, the IHT's well-worn travel 'guru' has a recurring habit of writing columns that are boring, repetitive and not very useful.
Most of the time I feel like screaming to these people who write to him with their tedious travel questions about how to get from A to B: LOOK ON THE NET OR ASK A BLOODY TRAVEL AGENT!
But this piece on train travel in Europe was readable, interesting and useful.
