Travelling North and nausea

THAILAND | Wed, 22 Feb 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [701]

So the day had come for us to leave Bangkok and head North to Chiang Mai. We had done a bit of research about transport options and although flying seemed to be the quickest, the train was the cheapest. We decided we had the time and 'when in Rome', ... Read more >

Adventurer's Tea

JAPAN | Thu, 28 Jan 2016 | By kakimono | Views [587]

On Saturday, I decided to take a train into Umeda. I’ve been talking a bit about “living in Osaka,” which is a slight exaggeration. Not quite as great as the exaggeration I make when I say I live in Chicago, but it is true for ... Read more >

Let's Take a Train to Anywhere

JAPAN | Sat, 23 Jan 2016 | By kakimono | Views [602]

Wednesday the first few hours were dedicated to train vocabulary. How to buy train tickets, how to buy shinkansen tickets, commuter passes, etc. After a little over an hour in the classroom, we headed out to one of the nearby train stations to get tickets ... Read more >

Norway in a Nutshell

NORWAY | Mon, 5 Oct 2015 | By welcometomyworld | Views [479]

Struggling to write this as I'm sitting in my hostel bed with no sheets because an American girl stole my bed and blankets (She literally looks like the headmaster from Matilda, breathes like a dragon and I am just not going near her). AND if that isn't ... Read more >

FRANCE | Fri, 2 Oct 2015 | By kakimono | Views [464]

In a shocking move, Sunday began with us getting into the bus and driving for at least an hour. This brought us to Périguex, a small town with a beautiful cathedral. While we were there, the town was also in the middle of Pé... Read more >

Friday we had to show up at the train station at 7:30 with clothes for the weekend and food for lunch packed. In addition to everyone in the Paris program, we were joined by the four Brown students studying in Lyon. We got on the train a little before ... Read more >

The Tea Train

SRI LANKA | Tue, 1 Sep 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [1042]

When a particular country is mentioned, my mind usually thinks of its landscapes. Someone says Bolivia, and I think of salt flats. For Iceland, it’s those mighty waterfalls. Italy is a neatly-laid vineyard. The words ‘Sri Lanka’ have ... Read more >

UNITED KINGDOM | Sun, 17 May 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [490]

AFter the ride to the beach, I boarded the train to Edinburgh.  The ride was approximately 3 1/2 to 4 hours, and I had to change trains along the way. The first train ride was only an hour  or so and the second was a good 2 2/3 to 3 hours. ... Read more >

Bam! Budapest!

CZECH REPUBLIC | Tue, 7 Oct 2014 | By markoffdamap | Views [513]

  My last entry ended qite abruptly, for which I apologise. Got distracted by things to do. No shortage of things to do in Prague, that's for sure! I left off talking about the trip to Kutna Hora - a strange little town with some cool things ... Read more >

Today I woke up and said goodbye to Matt before making my way across the street to a bakery. I had to get a Berliner (called pancake here) doughnut whilst in Berlin! Then I jumped on a train bound for Prague. It was only a 4 hour train ride, so I read ... Read more >

CHINA | Thu, 18 Sep 2014 | By adaptive | Views [566] | Comments [1]

I woke up at the apartment and packed my things. I got my tickets for the train to Shenyang where I think I will have to look for a hostel or hotel. It is a 12 hour train ride starting at 5:30pm. Unfortunately I was too late to buy sleeper cabin tickets ... Read more >

Onto the Steppe

MONGOLIA | Thu, 11 Sep 2014 | By daveonhols | Views [469]

Crossing the border to Mongolia was a hum drum affair, enlivened only marginally by the changing of the train's wheels for the wider Mongolian tracks.  A young, cheerful Chinese lady collected our passports, a few people bought cheap booze, and ... Read more >

The wheels are rolling to Mongolia

CHINA | Wed, 10 Sep 2014 | By daveonhols | Views [515]

We've passed through fifty four tunnels on the way out of Beijing.  Rumour has it that we will psas through over sixty in total before we are out into open country.    The sky is blue, with only a hint of grey-ish smog overhead. ... Read more >

A short hop to Shanghai

CHINA | Fri, 5 Sep 2014 | By daveonhols | Views [666]

If a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, then perhaps a seven thousand mile train journey should start with a metaphorical one hour hop from Hangzhou to Shanghai.   It was arguably a Chinese train that brought me to Singapore, ... Read more >

To Belgium!

BELGIUM | Thu, 28 Aug 2014 | By schmodude | Views [469]

I ended up at the pub crawl again. It was much better than the first time. Two people from the hostel came with me (Philippe and Laura) and there were around 15 people in total. Today I hung around and had a nice breakfast before working my way to ... Read more >

Between Invrness and Thurso, my sister and I wanted to stop at the impeccably Victorian Dunrobin Castle. As we were at the Inverness train station checking the boards and waiting for a platform to appear, we noticed that Dunrobin Caslte had an asterix ... Read more >

The train to Inverness was crowded. Extremely crowded. My sister and I spent most of the ride standing. There might have been other seats farther down in the train, but when we looked through the window to the next car, there were people standing ... Read more >

Calandar to Stirling, Stirling to Perth

UNITED KINGDOM | Tue, 26 Aug 2014 | By kakimono | Views [481]

As we were leaving Edinburgh, the GPS that came n the rental car kept sending us on crazy routes, like down High Street, or in a lane for buses only. We ended up ignoring her and just heading west out of Edinburgh. Once we'd managed to get on a road ... Read more >

Pleasantly Not Surprised

BELGIUM | Wed, 20 Aug 2014 | By jazzanomadica | Views [1324]

My first ever train ride in Europe confirmed the pre-conceived ideas I had developed of what train travel here would be like. It was… pleasant . I was a little sad to be leaving the tragically hip city of Berlin so soon. I had grown a deep ... Read more >
