TRAINS

MY AIMS IN MY LIFE: TRAINS

I am a big fan of the trains. As a child, I always wanted to train/tram/bus driver. These days I think it is an excellent job because you can enjoy stunning views of the country. Sadly, I never chose this carrier. i know for you travelling is just train but for me is an experience. I love to travel by train because I don’t need to drive so I can enjoy views, drink beer, listen to awesome music and read the book/do something creative/think about life. I love infrastructure

Trans-Siberian Railway

      I want to travel between Moscow and Vladivostok. Distance is just 9289 km. The only problem is I need music on this adventure, so I need to buy a bunch of battery packs for my phone.

Ride a train as a train driver

        This was my another childhood dream. I always dreamed of being a tram/bus/train driver. When I grew up, then I still think about being a train driver but not as a job, but I hope to have a chance to drive a train someday. If you got time and money, I am planning to travel across Europe on the train.

Train carriage as the office. 

I love to travel by train, and I dream to have an office on the train or at least have a carriage converted into the office.
