My first exposure to Ticket to Ride Europe (or, for that, any game which may or may not be a railroad game... *Grins*) came at a work party that I attended with Phaedrus (his first play report is a few threads below mine). I had quickly lost a game of Texas Hold 'Em on a bad all-in bet... all the better to start the boardgames.

Ticket was played after my first play of Puerto Rico, and was a welcome diversion. I was impressed by the illustration on the cards, and the mechanics were simple-- a lot more simple than I would've imagined. I chose two routes... Palermo-Moskva and Brest-Venezia (later on in the game, I pulled Athina-Angora). I did fairly well (although Phaderus had amassed a rather sizeable lead over me early), and were it not for the green tunnel connecting Zurich to Venezia, I would've met both of my routes.

All in all... I had a great time playing this... and can't wait until I get to take another shot at it. I've tasted blood... and I want more.
