Does one say birkat hagomel after taking the Eurostar (eg from London to Paris)?
I know we say it after: being freed from jail, being healed from sickness, travelling at sea, or travelling in the desert.
1) The train travels through the English Channel. I'm assuming this would still be called a "sea" by halakha.
2) We are travelling by train, whereas the bracha was probably intended for boats. I know (most agree) that aeroplanes require gomel, so I'd assume it's the same for a train.
3) I'm also wondering if there's something to be said about the length of the journey? It's quite short and a lot of it isn't even underwater.
