Train me to travel with a train
by Panagiotis Alexopoulos - 5 years, 3 months ago
First things first. Train is rather cheap, especially the night travelling ones. But this comes with many disadvantages. First of all, it is packed like a tuna can. And this can imply only one thing, noise. Now question yourself, what category makes the most noise? Yes, you got it. Schoolkids who are on their way to a school trip. Add a baby and you have my worst nightmare. The seats were uncomfortable by all means and the lights were on through the whole 500km way from Athens to Thessaloniki. I felt like a spy who has to sleep on tree branches in order to sleep lightly and be aware. So, what to do to make things better? Next time i'd sleep before travelling. But if I have to sleep during a night train trip i'll take with me a fully charged music player, a night mask and a small cushion. Maybe a pair of earplugs too. At least the destination is worth the pain.
