Planes, Trains and Automobiles

The theme in the Gallery this week is Planes, Trains and Automobiles.


So basically transport; that can be bicycles, motorbikes, camper vans, motor homes or jet skis.
Interpret it any way you like and then come back and let’s get that motor running (sorry).

A few years back one of my friends asked if I wanted to go to a conference with her to Antwerp. She would go off to and listen to boring interesting Orthoptic related things and I could wander around looking around the lovely city. Our plan was we would jump on the train in the evenings and check out neighbouring cities and be all cultural. And that we were. We gorged on Belgian chocolate, waffles, more chocolate and ooh’d and ahhhh’d at the diamond quarter. And then ate more chocolate.

One evening we made our way to the train station to go to Brussels. And we were met with this…

A double decker train!!!

Despite the fact that the UK is filled with double decker busses, we were amazed, not having seen one of these before, and like civilised adults in their late 20s, excitedly ran to the top! Then proceeded to go back to nattering and putting the world right all the way to our next destination.

  1. These are fantastic! We got on one from Brussels to Bruges, funnily enough, I was accompanying a friend who was attending a conference too! Never eaten so many waffles in my life, but oooh they were good!

    Would be great if we had double decker trains in the UK, no more squashing on the tube! (Brois I hope you’re reading this!)

    1. They are so good aren’t they? We really do need them. I’m sure our trains must be about 100 years old now… Or close!

  2. It’s groovy. Infact if I would be there at your place I would do the same. I love bi-level coach and prefer always upper coach. It’s been a fun ride for you. I was also amazed by watching the picture and its great we are moving forward in technology too much.

  3. Woah that weblog is usually great i adore learning the articles you write. Keep up the best works of art! You now know, a lot of individuals are generally shopping around for this info, you could possibly guide all of them greatly.
