Photo of the Day Saturday 22nd September 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell
Thought for the day…” If at first you don’t succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried ”
I had forgotten that train travel could be so pleasant. Just experienced the night train down through Europe to Switzerland, and spent some time thinking of how much better it was than flying. Nobody worried that I carried a Swiss army knife AND toothpaste AND shampoo. Nobody asked me stupid questions, and I was not subjected to the circus of security checks and queues. Neither was I herded through gates nor told to turn off my electronic devices. The coffee was considerably better, there was space, and the food onboard the train also considerably better. And the staff seemed to enjoy working as well. A huge contrast to flying, and I am glad that I took the train. Must do it more often…….
Staying on the theme of trains, here is a photo of Copenhagen train station, taken recently. About 5.4 million people live in Denmark, and apparently in Copenhagen, 37% of commuters cycle to work.
