Japan – All aboard the bullet train
The journey is too smooth.
I know it sounds weird, but when sitting on a 124mph bullet train I had hoped to get a real feeling of speed.
Instead, it was just… smooth. Not even a reassuring British Rail clanking to keep me company on the journey.
It wasn’t until I looked out of the window that I got any idea of speed at all.
Trees and buildings flew by at a fair old rate, while those inside continued on their sedate way.
Still, I didn’t get to think about it too long… we were there before I knew it.
