An Insane Travel Idea: One Day Trip to Tarrafal Part 2

The journey continues to Tarrafal after Part 1 here

tarrafal

An Insane Travel Idea: One Day Trip to Tarrafal Part 1

It is not far but considering the condition of the road, it is expected to take us more than 2 hours to reach it. So when someone suggested for one day trip to the other side of island for a swim, at first it sounded insane but then it was clear that it was the break that everyone was waiting for.[Click to read the rest] “An Insane Travel Idea: One Day Trip to Tarrafal Part 1”

Childhood Memories: Part 17 – Excited Taking Train Up North

(The start of our journey on the trains, the old train station – Image source: http://spwise.wordpress.com)

These days when I go back to my in-law’s house in Taiping for a well-deserved rest, we usually take the North South Highway and it takes us about 3 hours to reach. But there was a time in the late 70s and early 80s when we used to travel to Taiping by train during the festivals (very rare Deepavali celebrations in Taiping) or when someone had kicked the bucket or when someone very close was getting married.… [Click to read the rest] “Childhood Memories: Part 17 – Excited Taking Train Up North”
