Travel and Bathe in Luxury

I recently came across the ultimate coffee table book for railroad enthusiasts. Each page of Luxury Trains by John Smith is filled with lavish photographs of the most luxurious trains in the world.

I found Rovos Rail of South Africa the most intriguing because it offers a full sized bathroom in its 172 square foot Royal Suite.

As you can see from the photo above, in case bathing on a train isn't your thing, there is also a full sized shower available. These Royal Suites must be roomy if they are able to accommodate a 60 inch clawfoot bathtub. For more photos and information about Rovos Rail of South Africa, visit their website here.
