Of Train Journeys

There’s something about train journeys that I find so charming. You really don’t have to look hard to find things that can put you off traveling by trains, but you don’t have to look hard either to discover the joys of traveling on one. The excitement of seeing ones name printed in the charts. The joy or utter dismay at who your co-passengers are. The hot cups of chai, endless food and chatter around. The sheer luxury of staring out of the window for hours or reading for days. Changing landscapes, the vast rivers and smiling faces of complete strangers as you pass by villages and level crossings. Feeling the wind on ones face… train travel today is a luxury, simply because it forces you do nothing but just sit back and relax.
