CULTURES SAUVAGES #3 - I DIDN'T TRAVEL THE TRANS-SIBERIAN RAILWAY

CULTURES SAUVAGES #3 - I DIDN'T TRAVEL THE TRANS-SIBERIAN RAILWAY

A story of çäkçäk, love at first sight in Kyoto and the God Yue Lao’s mailbox.
As this new show’s topic initiated by Emilie is a wonderful subject for wordplays (let’s talk about shamanic trance as well as trance music, transsexuality and transgression), I chose today to tell you how I didn’t take the Trans-Siberian train.

SHIFEN AND THE PINGXI LINE RAILTRACKS

SHIFEN AND THE PINGXI LINE RAILTRACKS

On that day, our hearts chose Shifen, this town in the north-east of Taipei, which is famous for three things: its old streets, its lantern festival and its waterfalls. The train transports us in the very heart of the town, and many tourists are taking the advantage of the track’s position to make some original pictures. We’re no different. It’s way too tempting!

MOTUEKA - OAMARU IN FOUR DAYS 2/2: THE TRANZALPINE TRAIN & CHRISTCHURCH

Souvent listé dans les plus belles routes de train du monde, le TranzAlpine traverse l’île du Sud de la Nouvelle-Zélande de Greymouth à Christchurch, sur plus de 220 km. En Nouvelle-Zélande, il n’y a pas à proprement parler de réseau ferroviaire pour le public (hormis quelques lignes suburbaines autour de Auckland, Wellington et Dunedin). Il existe cependant trois lignes de train grande distance : le Northern Explorer entre Auckland et Wellington, le Coastal Pacific entre Picton et Christchurch, et le TranzAlpine, qui, mises bout à bout, avec la traversée en ferry de Wellington à Picton permettent de relier Auckland à Greymouth.
