TRAVELLING



"When going on a train, never forget to take a suitcase full of dreams"
 { Message to the travellers,  Jan van Nijlen, 1934 }



Today's post ends the series about our Dutch holiday. We went up north to visit family/friends and enjoy Dutch winter, as we often do in January. Both things accomplished, yay!
The above pictures come from the Train Museum in Utrecht, where we spent nearly a whole day. The happiest of us was -as one can imagine - our little Erik that enjoyed jumping on and off real trains, old steam trains and new ones.  I indulged in fantasies about the Orient Express and a time - in my imagination - in which travelling ment having lots of time to think, read, maybe write long travel diaries, meditating instead of rushing from A to B as fast as possible.
Now we are back home and my life is supposed to go back to normal routines smoothly and efficiently (hopefully). I will remember to pack my suitcases with dreams for the next trip.

    1. Yes, yes, yes! You read my mind! I love them all, let's see, which should I pick then? the green had a great coloring but the one with a animated film inside were simply dreamlike! Plesse remind me of the title of Bjork's video, now I know why that looked familiar then :-)
