All travelling well.

A long day travelling, but we have reach a professional class of train passengers., thinking that we know all the tricks.

Well that was until we got off at our Milano Rogeredo connection to go south to Genova.

Our reservation paper says, coach 2. Ok, there are no announcements or signs indicating where to get onto this train. We punt on half way.

As the train pulls in, we watch the carriage numbers pass by, ok, a 100m sprint along the platform to get on the train.

We are still moving down the platform, as the guard signals for us to get on.

So we do, struggling to get our heavy packs up a metre high train! We think we are in carriage 5 or 6.

Thank goodness these carriages all connect, and finally after walking through the train, we get to our carriage. In the mean time, the train is now hurtling down the tracks.

And guess what, someone is sitting in our seats.

Eye language and a simple affirmative nod, gets them moving.

We arrive at Genova, a short walk from the station thankfully.

It is great to be in another city

Love Marco and Giana
