This week, John (Journeys with Johnbo) leads the “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles… and the Places They Take Us”. John encourages us to share images of our travel journeys.
Ahh… so good to be back on the road again! The Bison at the Yellowstone was no hurry. 🙂
Bus tour gives us a wonderful convenience of sightseeings, especially in a city that you are not familiar with. But… it’s challenging to take good photos on a bus. Below is our trip to London:
When we travel, we enjoy riding public transportations. The Brightline in Miami is easy to get on and off.
It’s fun to travel on a cruise. And, we have done a few times.
You can enjoy these fabulous scenes from your balcony or walk up to the deck. The best part is that you don’t need to pack/unpack your luggage for the next stop.
On the cruise to Alaska, I tried to burn some calories by walking around the ship, some 5 miles per day and using their workout facility. I also enjoyed their daily yoga and easy chi-kung before breakfast.
Our best train experience is in Japan, the train and station are meticulously clean, and staff members wear white gloves. If the train is scheduled at 7:58 am, it is not 8:00 am. The door closes and the engine starts at 7:58 precisely. You just can’t beat that.
“Japan is endlessly, endlessly interesting to me…”
“If I had to eat only in one city for the rest of my life, Tokyo would be it.”
The train riding to Muchu Picchu was a memorable adventure.
At the San Francisco airport, you can order coffee through your cell phone, the robot coffee maker makes it right in front of you. They also provide drinking water stations allowing people to select ice cold water, warm water, or hot water.
Murals make the long walk from gate to gate at the airport more interesting. Salt Lake City Airport:
San Francisco Airport:
Uber is cool. You can select the size of the vehicle and the app tells you when/where the uber is coming. Riding uber, we get to hear stories from the driver. One driver told us that he got bored after retired from HP though he played golf a couple of times a week. One day, his golf partner told him about Uber. He said that he enjoyed giving people rides ever since. Another driver said that he was a truck driver, when their kids were gone to college, his wife asked him to come back home, so he started uber. 🙂 The other day, I rode with a college student driver. Most of the time, he drives on Friday night and weekends. His uber income helps pay for his apartment and other expenses.

Many thanks to Ann-Christine’s “Favorite Finds”. It was fun and inspiring! Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos and finds.
All these transportations, services, and so many hard-working people behind the scene make our travels easy, possible, and enjoyable, and I don’t take them for granted. Special thanks to John’s thoughtful theme. For this challenge, John wants us to focus on our travel journey. Click here to view John’s travels. We hope you’ll join us.
