On this day in 1883 the first regularly scheduled Orient Express departed Paris. This train made it easier for people to leave their car keys on the front counter and relax for a change. The route of the Orient Express changed many times. Although the original Orient Express was simply a normal international railway service, the name has become synonymous with intrigue and luxury travel. The two city names most prominently associated with the Orient Express are Paris and Istanbul, the original endpoints of the timetabled service. I have included a chart for your viewing pleasure regarding driving. This may or may not be true, but statistics depicted in this graph changed instantly as the Orient Express made its first run. Thanks to M B for the chart. Drive safely everyone!
