Who said that you cannot have fun on a train when your destination is eight hours or more away?
Many people might say that they could sleep the entire way and be okay. But not everyone is an eight-hours a night sleeper who can drift in lala land even through earthquakes that might wake everybody else up.
For those who find no fun in sleeping, then you might be like me, gazing out the window and looking at your watch every ten minutes as if that would speed things up. What could I gain from sleeping when my eyes were looking at the most beautiful waterways, mountains and trees? I might have missed something spectacular that needed to be photographed.
And so while I was in Russia and aboard the train going from Novorossiysk to Rostov, here is how I killed time to make the ride go just a little bit smoother without me getting bored.
What do you do on long train rides? Let me know. . .
