Its travel time folks ! I am heading to Kolkata this weekend to attend a friend’s wedding.
While the event as also the time spent there are expected to be a blast, we decided to enjoy ourselves even during travel time
I have NEVER been on a long distance train in India…..so travelling for 26 hours via the Durunto Express should be a novel experience !
[Update : The Duronto Express is a well maintained fast train which really goes non stop to its destination ! They have a great catering service also with regular bursts of food supplements.]
Speaking of trains, most of us have a rather bad opinion of train travel in India…..not very clean….very cramped (short distance trains!) etc.
I thought why not look up something on some of the best trains of India instead ? That ought to make most people change their opinions on train travel here ! (yaya…I know I am a very optimistic person )
