Amazing: Train Journey to the coast – India 2013

On of my favourite highlights from the whole visit – the chance to see how the countryside changes.


Saturday 6th July – We were all up very early ready to go catch the train to the coast. We made it to the train station in good time ready to catch the train south.

I hope you have a look at the photo’s, though you might want to leave yourself a little time… there are quite a few of them!

I’ve added the link for the return journey as well from the 8th July.

I have to say sorry to Lesley… In India you are able to travel with the train doors open, I think I scared Lesley half to death by leaning out of the door to take photo’s for most of our journey. In my defence I was enjoying myself…! though I did notice every so often one of my travelling companions would be holding the back of my top in case I fell out.

Because of the early start some took the chance to catch a few mins sleep, I stayed wide awake the whole journey, the scenery was stunning.

That is one trip I could happily make over and over again.
