bring me this kind of magical feeling of adventure, nostalgia, excitement, childlike JOY and just a wild wonder for the unknown.
maybe it’s bc we didn’t have a car when I grew up, and trains meant going further than our normal walk to school or bus trip down town.
or maybe it’s the symbol of what a train is and how far it can take my little feet into the unknown and out to wild, weird and wonderful adventures.
bc i can assure that the danish trains i grew up with are nothing like magical vintage trains like the ones in the old movies in “fairytale europe” or on the photo above.
they are boring grey, square, simple and to be frank, quite scary! 🙈
but imagine my excitement when i visited the old town in denmark, where houses, buildings, horse wagons, trains etc from 100s years ago and from all over the country has been collected and moved into what they call Den Gamle By, also translated into The Old Town.
i don’t remember the exact age of this locomotive, but it was over a 100 years.
i almost didn’t believe they exhausted outside of fairytale movies, but they do!
i touched it!
i even went inside it.
it was wonderful.
such a beauty.
and now if @den_gamle_by
could just sponsor me i’d take all of you on a time travelling journey around this old town!
