David Baldacci, The Christmas Train


When walking, you see things that you miss in a motor car or on the train. You give your mind space to ponder. Tom Hodgkinson

Have you tried to get lost? You ride a wrong train? How you manage it? In my experienced I made mistakes but I keep myself relax and think I can go home again. I ride a wrong train before but that experience I learned and become more self -confidence. Don’t be afraid if you get lost. Don’t be shy to ask .

How do you feel riding the train? I already tried different kinds of trains, from a modern train to old train but this train it’s very comfortable. You can sit even it’s a long distance or short distance. We like to sit on the train and enjoy the different places.

Some train you need to stand up a long time and so crowded. That’s my experience about a train. How about you? How’s your experience about a train? Can you share with me?

Thank you for dropping by on my blog.

I’m glad to share my journey.

  1. I have a few experiences with trains here in the States. I used to ride the L train (elevated train) to school in Chicago. Recently, we visited Japan and rode the bullet train; that was pretty exciting. Thanks for sharing this.
