I had travelled to many parts of the world, by plain to the countries abroad, and bus and train rides in some of the countries. The most exciting and fascinating train ride I took was in Japan, the famous "Bullet Train", called Shinkansen in Japanese. It was from Tokyo to Osaka. Oh, so marvellous. The train goes at 300 km/hr. Tha was like flying on a train !! The service on the train was excellent too ! Take this ride when you go to Japan !

Train is my favorite form of transport and I have traveled on them in many different parts of the world. My most fascinating train journey was from Mombasa to Nairobi in Kenya. We had a two bedded cabin that was first class so it was really comfortable. The lights were not working so other passengers moved to a different carriage. We both had a torch so we didn't worry. The lack of strong light gave a nice atmosphere and it was quite exciting. I went to sleep, hearing the relaxing sound of the train moving along the track. In the morning we went to the buffet carriage for breakfast and we saw a giraffe. Wow!
