Weekly Photo Challenge:”I’d Rather Be…Aboard a Train for an Adventure”



Trains have always fascinated me. And my idea of adventure is hopping on to see places I’ve only read about.

Nothing beats the familiar train whistle or the chug of the wheels as it hit the tracks. The long hours to a destination are just opportunities to bond with loved ones over a cup of coffee or two.

I was in the East Coast three years ago and since driving to Washington, DC is not something we relish – so, train ride it is! The landscape views, scenery, people I’ve met, smells and sounds are just some of the things that made train rides so fascinating.

And it didn’t hurt that there was WIFI on board – ha!

Train rides allow you to dream en route to your destination. It’s a mode of transportation that forces the body to slow down and enjoy the view.

Truly an escapist-mode of transportation!
