Train journey

Train journey

[February, 2011] I went to Nice from Milan by train.

It took about 5 hours.

I was expecting a new fast train like the Red Arrow, but in fact it was an old type with compartment seats.

It had a good old travelling atmosphere.

6 people in the room once started talking, they never stopped, so there was not a moment of sleeping for me.

This train went up only to Ventimiglia, a border town in Italy and I had to change to a French local train.

You would expect one train goes all the way, wouldn't you.

I felt somewhat an invisible fence between the countries.
