Way around and doubling back

| Work and play | 2 Comments

Traveling by train is going to take some serious getting used to, that's for sure.

There were some technical problems, and the train departed later than it was supposed to. Then we were standing there in the packed train, pressed between sweating bodies and looking out the window.

Where is this place? Doesn't look familiar at all. Believe it or not a looping and curving detour to the east, down through Hilversum, and then doubling back to Utrecht.

Two and a half hours to get home is not a very relaxing way to end the day.


The positive light on this is that you don't have to do the driving. It could have been a two and a half hour traffic jam where you would have had to pay attention the whole time. Then again, the lack of sweaty bodies would have been nice.

You're right. Now that I think about it, I often used to sit in a traffic jam twice a day an hour and a half each way. I'll go for the sweaty bodies any time.
