Have you ever been on one of those cross county rail journeys, like you see in the movies?
No I dont mean from Manchester to London and back, I mean something much more adventurous. Something perhaps a bit grander like something from a Wes Anderson film. Something like the Orient Express and similar.
I’ve always had my imagination captured by the idea of these journeys. Passing through the country overland, watching the scenery change from place to place, rather than flying over it in the clouds seems like it would be more enjoyable for me, an avid people and scenery watcher.
The journey itself becomes part of the event rather than just the destination.
It would also forces you to slow down mentally, forcing you into a slower pace before you reached your destination. Much the opposite of flying I suspect, which I know many people find stressful.
Today I wanted to share with you the idea of travelling to and through India. Great Rail Journeys have created the most beautiful and visually striking I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen a few- I get sent Infographics about all kinds of things. Most of which I dont share with you as I’m not usually keen on them.
But this is like no infographic I’ve come across before. Its called India in Colour and if you like colour and travel this is going to be right up your street. Broken down into colour categories it takes you through things in India that are in that colour. For example White is the Taj Mahal, the lotus blossom and the Jasmine flower. And Red is Saffron, Chilli and the Red Fort in New Delhi.
