As the ash from the volcanic eruption in Iceland continues to disrupt air travel in both North America and Europe, travelers are looking for new ways to get to their destinations.  Rail and ferry services across Europe have been bombarded by thousands of passengers who are looking for a way to across the continent.  Under European law, those passengers whose flights have been cancelled can choose between a full refund or a reroute to their final destination.  However, because of the ash cloud, many travelers have decided to look at trains or ferries to get where they need to go.
