No, but actually when I was a student, I have a lot of trains. I use the train to visit my friends. We enjoy it because we can see around in the windows. Have a great day, everyone!

When I was little, I often taken the train to visit my grandparents. My mother would then take me to the train station to buy a ticket. There were many trains and there were train cars that I could not count all. The train ticket price list is very diverse, with prices for adults, children, the elderly, people with disabilities ... At that time, the train was very good, but now there are many vehicles to easily move from this place to other place.

My last train was in 2008 when I traveled to Hanoi with my father. Everything seemed strange to me. I had been very excited. And then, I slept all the trip. There is one thing I remember is that I had cried a lot and my father give me a chocobin ( a box of animal chocolate cookies ). I ate it and stopped crying. It had become my unforgettable memory. I like traveling by train a lot.
