Digging to Roam

Rain and Trains – Traveling from Glasgow by Rail


On my way to Durham today. Another rainy day is in the works, but I don’t care…I’m in Europe! I tell ya, walking 3 blocks with two roller suitcases, a serious hiking backpack and a shoulder bag is a lot more exhausting than it sounds. The people I met in Scotland were all really friendly and good thing because I arrived at the wrong door to Central Station, because it was the closest one to my hostel. By wrong, I mean the door that the only way into the building was by going up two large sets of stairs. Thankfully another one of those nice scots put down his bag and carried one of my bags up for me.

I’m on the train now and I think I heard something

about there being a dining car but that accent is hard to understand, or I’m just so overwhelmed with the awesomeness of it that I keep forgetting what people are saying to me.

*Update* There is a dining car with the classic train food. At least I’m not starving anymore.
As the train passed a castle a little girl cried out, in a classic British accent, “A cAHstle! Look! A real cAHstle! Did princesses live there?” And her mom told her they did, because they probably did. Oh, Britain.
