Day 2: train lunch!

EN

Today’s post is about a long train ride with my 2 favourite F’s: family and food!
It was on the 1st January and after my Hongkongese family visited my mum’s grave and while most shops, malls and restaurants are closed on that day so we decided to keep my HK family busy by doing a long train trip where we ate, talked and gazed through the windows at our beautiful Dutch landscapes.

Het bericht van vandaag gaat over een lange treinreis met mijn 2 favoriete F's: familie en (f)voedsel!
Het was op 1 januari na een bezoekje aan mijn mama’s graf en de meeste winkels, winkelcentra en restaurants zijn gesloten op die dag, dus we besloten om samen een lange treinreis te maken, samen eten, samen praten en samen een blik werpen door de ramen naar onze mooie Nederlandse landschap, zodat de familie leden van Hong Kong toch een gevoel van vakantie hadden.

I was glad that the train was almost completely empty and that we were able to eat our train picnic in ease.

  1. I think that's the best way to show someone proper scenery within any city, especially when a lot of the usual happenings are closed due to public holidays etc. Train rides sometimes offer such a better insight as opposed to a trip in the car.

  2. A very well-stocked train ride! I visit Taiwan every winter break, and every time we always take the high speed rail to visit my two sets of grandparents who live in different cities. To prepare for the train ride, my family and I always like a trip to 7-11 beforehand to stock up on snacks, and my brothers usually bring cards or their Kindle. I usually just carry my iPad and a book :) -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
