My Modes of Transport – by Angelie

During my trip so far, I have experienced lots of different modes of transport and I would like to share them with you.

  • First, we flew from Hong Kong to London.
  • After that, we took the Eurostar train from London to Paris. The Eurostar goes in a tunnel underwater.

  • In Paris, we got a car that we drove in for 2 months across Europe.

  • In Brittany, I went around on my bike with my cousins and together we also sailed a catamaran to an island for a picnic.

  • We took overnight ferries 2 times over the Mediterranean Sea. That was awesome! There was even a playroom!

  • In Sifnos, we used a canoe to go and pick up our ceramics two beaches away.

  • In London, Paris and Athens, we took the tube.
  • When we were in Istanbul, daddy and I woke up early to catch the bus to get to Gallipoli.  It took a long time to get there (5 hours), then we visited the Gallipoli battlefields, and then it took even longer to come back by bus to Istanbul (8 hours because of traffic).

  • When we were in Iran, we took a horse carriage to go around Imam Square in Isfahan. That was fun!

  • In India, we took lots of tuk-tuks. They are also called auto-rickshaws. One of them didn’t have an engine: it was attached to a bicycle.
  • This is one of my favourites so far: in Khuri – a desert village in India – we took camels to the sand dunes and played in the sand for a while. AWESOME!

  • This is also one of the best things: we took a Jeep from Khuri to Jaisalmer (about 1 hour). We were completely cramped; the back and sides of the jeep were open and one of the bags nearly fell out.

  • We took a first class train from Jaisalmer to Jaipur for 13 hours and also a second class train from Agra to Varanasi (also 13 hours). The only difference between first class and second class is that first class has a door to separate the cabins and second class has only a curtain and is a little bit smaller. Finally we took another overnight train from Varanasi to Kolkata. It was fun to ride the trains in India!

  • In Jaipur, we fed the elephants sugar canes and then we painted them, I gave mine a pedicure! Then we rode them and washed them (more like we washed each other!) It was fun!!!

  • In Varanasi, we woke up at 4 a.m. to go on a little row boat on the Ganges river. We brought a packed breakfast from the bakery and I actually got to try rowing the boat for a bit! The sunrise was beautiful and rowing the boat was fun!

  • We rode in the back of a cycle rickshaw in Lhasa, Tibet. Our cyclo had bells on it that made a nice sound as we rode.

  • In Xizhou, Yunnan Province, we rode in a horse-drawn cart. While I was waiting for the others in my family to arrive, the driver let me sit on the horse’s back.  Its name was Apple and it was a very friendly horse. While riding in the cart out to the lake, it reminded me of the horse carriage in Isfahan, Iran, except that the scenery was different!

  • We are now back in a car driving through China, on our way to Thailand.

I wonder what other types of transportation we will use in the rest of this journey?

    Great work, Ange!
    You’ve been a great travel companion, and I love the way you are always adventurous, you are willing to try new experiences, and you are open and warm to meeting new people.
    I know it can be tough to be away from all your friends for so long – but your smile, your kindness to your sisters, and your great attitude are just a wonderful boost to all of us!
    Looking forward to sharing and learning more with you in the final stages of our journey.
