Rocky Mountaineer Day 1: Video

Vancouver/Kamloops 16th May 2016,


Here’s the video of the first part of our train ride. In the early frames, you’ll see someone apparently reading a newspaper, in spite of what’s going on around them. But, that ‘newspaper’ is actually ‘The Milepost’, a complimentary information sheet given to each passenger which is packed with information about the train, and contains a useful map, so you can track your progress.

You’re also given a copy of ‘RM’, a glossy souvenir magazine.

But, these are the only distractions. There’s no wifi on the train, so you can concentrate fully on what’s around you, and tell about what you saw only when you’ve reached your destination, and have maybe had the chance to marshal your thoughts a little.

And, that’s the way I usually work, anyway.
