I left the quiet life of my native country for the big, noisy London with its special adventures, events - a mix of people and cultures.
I used to move around my small town by foot, a 45 minutes walk being the longest that you could do, from one side to another.
It used to be so simple and so natural with no worries of being late to school or work.
And now I am here.
I am commuting for 1:30h every morning and I also walk around an hour. I wake up at 5 so I can be in time for my 9 am lecture.
The time spent on the train is my free time. I think I relax, I get to breathe - is my escape.
Trains are very appealing to me. They give me the feeling that I have a purpose even when I don’t have one. Trains transport me outside reality, in better or worse places- in places where I would rather be.
