The train ride from hell

Well, we are 14 hours into the train ride from hell and I cannot tell you how much I'm looking forward to getting off this fucking train. I realized at the airport I'd made a critical tactical error in not booking a sleeper car for me and Mr. "not only can I not sleep on transport ever but now I need my lag elevated, too." Unfortunately I put in the request too late and we found out at five we were stuck on the other train. This was extra bad as after a day of being tough, J was aching badly.

So, our night. We weren't able to get on the train until 1030 (which sucked as we were both sleep depped and exhausted from the day), then ... next to the door, which slammed all night. #he smoking. The horror toliet. The lack of food ...
