Watching Trains


Kids love trains, at least I heard of several kids that do and I haven’t been any different when I was young. My grand cousin is no different either. I noticed this during our bicycle tours when we cycled over bridges with railways underneath as she pointed with the fingers at the coming trains and I stopped so that she can watch. Since then, we regularly take the bike to do that. Just recently, a neighbor mother inspired me with the idea to check the train station as she is doing it with her son. So, we went to the … Continue reading Watching Trains

Route to Hamburg


Above is a photo that I shot in Reinfeld. These train tracks go from Lübeck over Reinfeld where I shot the photo, to Hamburg and so on. And nope, I didn’t put myself in danger.

Also I am not sure about this, but I guess the engine is one of the older ones. But then again, don’t … Continue reading Deutsche Bahn Train

Lübeck Train Station


I wanted to share a photo with you of the train station in Lübeck. But this is actually a photo that I didn’t take. My mother shot it with her smartphone and I really liked the image. I like the perspective from where it is shot. Since I do of course know the train station too, I think she shot it from the stairs. This photo is in my opinion a great example that it’s actually not bad to take photos with a phone. Not only is the quality satisfactory, but another advantage of smartphones is that they have a … Continue reading Lübeck Train Station
