I like the brown tones in this.

There's always something romantic about long distance train travel.

2015-04-01 Rerun commentary: One time I took a train trip from Venice to Paris with my wife. Very romantic. Except the air conditioning wasn't working and it was about 30°C inside. And we boarded the train without having eaten, planning to have dinner on board (it was an overnight service), and the power problems were also affecting the kitchen - so they couldn't cook anything, and there was nothing cold because the refrigerators weren't working. So it was warm salad for dinner, washed down with warm drinks.

We had a good laugh about it. Several years later.
