The best laid plans....

.....sometimes go awry.

Place: Interlaken Ost station

Group mood: Irate
Train departure time: 8:08:00 a.m


Time: 8:07 a.m

She: Sigh ! Men !!

I (pretending to be philosophical while seething internally): Anything can happen in one minute.

She (obviously frustrated): Humph! The train will leave in a minute!


Time: 8:07:50 a.m

Catch a glimpse of six zooming blurs speeding towards the platform and blindly herd them into the nearest second class compartment.


Time: 8:07:57 a.m

Six heavily sweating, panting bodies bodies hurl themselves and their luggages (which included the likes of the following) into the train.


Time: 8:08 a.m

The train leaves without any further ado (or earth-shaking incidents) thus enabling us to reach our final destination on time.


And to think of the sights we would have delayed captured thanks to the time sense of these men.....rather big boys......

Whoa... breathtaking photographs there. Nice.

I did something very similar on our trip to Lake District. Got into the train (jumped into it) and the doors closed five seconds behind me.
