Overnight Train to Paris ….

After a tearful goodbye with my daughter in Hamburg, I made it onto the connecting train to Hannover where I would catch the City Night Line train to Paris, an overnight train.  I had decided to treat myself to a first class single compartment.  It was just so nice and such an enjoyable ride.

It took a little practice taking photos from the window as the train was moving.  Several of my photos were just blurrs!  I loved the little in-room bathroom set up – everything I needed was right there in one small compartment.  There was a chocolate on my pillow and magazines to read (in German).  And I had to put in an order for breakfast.  I had my Kindle for reading and a bottle of water for the evening, so I snuggled in for the night.

The next morning I was able to start taking photos of the French countryside.  I wasn’t sure where we were, but I took them anyway.

As you can see, it was mid-Spring time and the fields had been plowed, waiting to be seeded.  Some vegetable gardens were planted and sprouting and it was raining, of course, that’s what brings May flowers!  I loved seeing the old cathedrals in the middle of the villages…

      Where I live here in the Midwest USA, there is only one passenger train, running from Indianapolis to Chicago. Before my Europe trip, I had never ridden trains before. It was an enjoyable experience!
