luhuv traveling by trains. When I was on the train from Paris to London, I started a list of every train trip I'd ever taken and all the passing images from out the windows that I concentrated so hard at the time to remember: beautiful vignettes of sheep/cows/horses in fields, camel herders in desolate deserts, mountain bends, river crossings, scenes of wet green rainforests, rows of eucalyptus trees in India and cypress in Italy, small villages and children chasing the train yelling "hello!"... I didn't have my sidekick canon elph then.
And although the trip between London and Paris is too short in my opinion and my suitcases were too heavy, it's the feeling of total freedom, abandon, nostalgia, inspiration, time for contemplation, exploration, (train food) that reminded me to take a much longer train trip again sometime soon.
