When Chris travels for business, it’s usually the same process on departure day. I usually get up with him, even if it’s really early, the luggage is loaded into the car, and I drive him to the local train station where he takes the train directly to either the international or domestic airport and he’s on his way to his next gig.
But, today was different. Rather than fly to Dubbo, he decided to take the country train out of Central. Of course, it takes a few hours longer, but it’s much cheaper and he tries to reduce his travel costs wherever possible Plus, the trip provided him with some uninterrupted work time to be productive and the opportunity to enjoy the romance of the rails.
I was happy to drive to him to our local train station. But, this time, I didn’t just drop him off. I got out and rode into the city to Central Station where his train was waiting.
We said our goodbyes and then I logged my 12,000 Fitbit steps around the city for a change of pace. That was then followed by a morning coffee catch up then back home.
I guess you could say that we both did things differently today. I think this practice might be catching on!
In fact, you could even go as far as to say that others are jumping on board the DID-train.
To that, I say, “All aboard. The more the merrier!”
