Train Trip

So I started this post a week after New Years and it’s March already. On New Year’s Day, I went on the Umgeni Train ride which is run completely by volunteers. We managed to go on the perfect day because it wasn’t raining and there weren’t actually a lot of people on the train. There were plenty on the first ride of the day I was told, but my parents and I went on the evening ride. We were actually able to pick our own seats!

Apart from going on a train ride being so flipping cool, just check these views! The windows were all wide open so we got to breathe the fresh African air and catch some stunning shots.

Once we got there we browsed the market a little bit and sat down for some supper. Of course, we had to go for some pizza.

The ride back was almost better than the ride there because it was just getting dark and there’s something so satisfying about trundling along in a train at dusk.

Staring out of a dark train window listening to the music that you love sounds like one of the best ways to spend your time.

She took the midnight train going anywhere…

Almost for the whole ride back, my head was out of the window (being careful about overhanging branches) and I just turned up the music on my phone and enjoyed the ride.

So I hope you enjoyed this little mid-week post about my first adventure of the year. Even though it’s March already, it’s not too late to look ahead at the year coming and make the plans that you want to make. I’m personally excited for this month because it’s my B-Day month :D, but whatever else is facing you this year, be bold enough to do the things you want to do.

I hope you enjoyed this post, I’d love to hear from you so don’t be shy and leave comment down below. ^_^

Expect more posts coming soon!!

  1. Another well written and descriptive blog Abby! While reading it, I was transported back to the 60’s to the long train trips we had as students en route from Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) to and from University of Cape Town. Two and a half days riding thru some of the most amazing scenery. Thanks for sharing. Love Granny
