I haven’t been able to update this site in quite awhile. Been busy with a lot of things at work and my outside work. But I’m excited for the new year when I will jumpstart another adventure that I’m preparing myself for.
I already have a couple of tickets booked and I’ve been saving to help me get through a big decision that I’ll be announcing soon. I’m excited but I’ll wait till I can finally jump off that bridge. Because by that time, I’ll be able to savor every moment of travelling. One of the things I’m looking forward to are long train rides.
Sites like seat61.com are very helpful for those who rely on the internet to get the necessary information on train journeys. I know I’ll be able use it more often when travelling overland especially in Southeast Asia.
I’d like to ride a rail transport just so I can feel grounded while on the way to different destinations. It has lesser hassles especially for older people to safely travel using this mode of transportation. I remember hopping on a 6-hour train ride from Bangkok to Aranyaprathet on our way to Siem Reap and it felt nice to witness the view outside our window.
The past few travels, I’ve learned to take time and enjoy the moment of waiting as it gives me more time to reflect. I realize a few thoughts while looking at a scenery that things I complain about don’t really matter and the things that I have, I cherish more.
I’m wondering how many trains I’ll ride in this lifetime, but I’m happy that I’ve done so at least once.
I’m excited and I hope to meet souls along the way that will give me a better perspective in life. They might even change me in the process.
