I don’t know about you, but I don’t go on the train very often. When I do, it’s like a little adventure and I love every second of it. I’ve recently gone on the train quite a bit (actually, I wrote this on the train!) I love it when you get a seat and room to stretch out. Wifi and a plug are a bonus and headphones are essential, but either way you get to see something different, no matter where you’re going to or from. Holiday makers, business people, families, friends, all going and doing something different. Love it!
While trains have their faults, from being over crowded to over priced, I can remember going on the train as a kid with my friends. We’d go to Tenby on a real bone shaker! I loved it then and I love it now. Watching the world flash by, seeing bits of the country that you don’t see from the road, whether it’s someone walking their dog round a field, a small holding or businesses randomly in the middle of the countryside, it’s like you’re peeking into someone else’s life. Throw in the amazing people watching and eavesdropping you can do and it’s like watching a soap opera! That plus the fact that you get on the train in one place and when you got off, you’re somewhere else, makes it a real adventure for me! Hey, if we don’t take pleasure in these little things, then wwe’rein trouble!
