Celebrating Experiences

Swiss Train.

Metros and Trains of Various cities in the World!

Today I would like to start my blog post with an incident. It was the first day in my University (few years back). All the masters student were attending a lecture by our Head of the Department. At the end of his speech, he devised an innovative way for the students to know each other.

Reading, Traveling and exploring – my three bosom friends

He told us that we must draw something which would describe ourselves and then we will get introduced to one another. The first impression of us would be the drawing on the piece of paper. Interestingly, many of the students came up with lovely ideas. I had drawn a small tree in a tub (To represent myself), which is being watered by life (every day) that includes incidents, experiences and education. The more water would be poured, the more beautiful the fruits and the flowers of that tree will be. I must admit, as the years pass by, that drawing (Which I had drawn merely after a 5 minutes of brainstorming), has left in me a deep realization. I still endeavor to pour water on that tree each and every day ever since. Reading, traveling and exploring have thus become my three bosom friends.

Glimpses of metros in different countries of the world

Traveling and eventually exploring something unknown, less known or well known present me with new experiences, ideas & knowledge and which in turn help me grow each day. New journeys add momentum to my life whenever life gets trapped in everyday routine. How I wish to break free in limitless bounds then!!

While roaming in Europe with a map in hand, metros are of big help. I have traveled through innumerable metros and trains in different cities of various countries. I will try to present here, some of the glimpses of metros in different countries of the world. Let me start with Switzerland!!

Many of you may say, there exist not much difference between the metros of different cities. I agree to it. Technically they don’t differ much. If we introspect people, type of advertisements in the metro & train, the ticket checkers, we may realize the differences!! Every city has different characteristics and so do their metros and trains. It is all about realizing and feeling the differences!!I will present more glimpses of different metros of various cities in the world in another blog post.

Hello. My name is Chirasree. I have been traveling for almost 11 years to places all over the world. I enter into a separate reality during my travels and enjoy the allure of escape from the mundane. I seek beauty through nature and human-made creations. Because beauty is powerful. I seek knowledge. I observe, absorb, and write about the places I visit and the profound realizations and inspirations that each place has to offer.

  1. As usual, Interesting, informative and original in description ..

  2. Metros/trains/subways…they are all fantastic ways to travel! When I was living in Montreal, I would choose the metro system over my car to go to work, and later on when I started working from home, I would take the commuter train to go downtown to meet my husband for lunch. When we visited Washington, DC, we were pleasantly surprised to find a Metro system. It was a great way to get around. I spent a day in London when I was between flights (many MANY years ago) and traveled from one end of the city to another with their underground system. I got to see most of the city's main attractions this way within a few hours. I love these modes of transportation. Easy to use, and very convenient.
