and into Poland
02.03.2016 - 03.03.2016
Late last night after stopping at Strasburg the train crossed over the border with Germany. After some sleep I awoke just before we stopped in Berlin at 07.15. 2 hours later the train entered Poland, and I am now in the 1st new country on my trip.
Sleeping in a bunk on a moving train is interesting, with both the train noise and the bumps and changes of direction helping to keep you awake. The track was noticeably smother in Germany compared to France, with a lot fewer sets of points to cross.
As for Poland, most of what I have seen so far is flat fields and lots of trees. The restaurant car is Polish and I decided to have meat and dumpling soup for breakfast. Very nice and very filling.
Also instead of describing this as a trip around the world I have decided to start saying it is a trip to Barming Station as this is where I am going to end up.
