I am currently on my way to Aranyaprathet, the border of Thailand and Cambodia, onboard a fairly local train which just costs us 48 baht (approximately 60-65 pesos) a person.

A 7 hour ride in a train with ceiling fans and unsturdy seat, a bit rough for a long haul but it is a good experience— after all that’s what I’m here for, to experience what life is in store in a new place as long as I’m able and my funds are capable.

This is the longest time I have been on a train, and it kept me thinking how much long should I stay on the own train that I’m in, it’s tiring, physically painful and emotionally exhausting, which is why after this train ride, I’m getting off as well to what I thought was my train ride to forever, or lack thereof.

This day will be a full day of transferring from one mode of transportation to another, to dealing with immigration officers and to catching the next bus or train to my next destination, so that this time I won’t miss my flight.
