A Frosty Train Ride Through the Midlands

I love travelling by train. It is such a simple way to travel and feels so atmospheric, even though the carriages have changed in design. The stations were shrouded in mist that morning. I travelled to Leicester late December and spent a good deal of the journey daydreaming through the windows. It was however very cold for someone who lives in Mexico. The temperatures were below freezing and when I had to change trains I wasn’t sure I would make it to the second train. The landscape was frosted and in the early morning light, the fields racing past my window seemed almost lavender.

Thankfully I had my new Kindle Paperwhite to keep me busy so as the scenery rushed past, I had time to make my travel resolutions for the year.

  1. Travel more frequently, even if it’s not far
  2. Travel better and smarter by reading up before I go
  3. Blog more about my travels
  4. See at least two continents in 2017
  5. Use the trains more!

What are your travel resolutions for 2017?
