Travelogue UK: Night Time journey

Posted on: July 11, 2016

The train depart exactly at 10 pm, as per my ticket. I was sitting facing this old English fella whose busy typing something on his laptop. I was wondering if the islamophobia things come to live- to me- that night. Told myself this would be remarkable that nobody minds my business on the train ride.

It was night time journey so basically there is nothing to see by the window. But it was a very pleasant and sufficient Night journey. Told myself numerous time that ‘You-shall-never-fell-asleep-this-is-your-once-in-a-million-year-milestone-every-moment-count’ of thing. I guess without even closing my eyes, I can know where the train stops, who’s the new one on Board and so much more.

At this moment and Time, England is hosting the Rugby World Cup. Basically, You may see all the man cheering and doing everything at every single corner of the streets, and it’s so fun to watch. I can see people boarding and enlighting the train, which causes the train almost empty when it reached Newcastle at 2am.


I was too excited.  I know that  someone will be my company to Edinburgh at 6am Virgin Train. It was 2 am but the liveliness of the Train station still hanging in my mind. If I am not mistaken, one of the Rugby match was held at the Newcastle stadium. Well, he is is a little bit late in picking me up even though his house is just 10 mins away (by Walking). I’ve got extra nervous waiting at the Newcastle Train Station by myself.

But walking to his house would be very funny jokes. with my stroller bag. It’s super duper autumn cold at night/morning and with drunk English man everywhere plus me wearing my hijab. Although I don’t mind, he calls a cab. So basically we reach his home around 3pm.

Unlike Malaysia, English house is like a town house, with the main door and 3-floor house normally rent with a family. His house at the 3rd floor. Although it was cold and breeze, I need to take a bath. I really do. And there is hot shower (YAY!!!).

It was nice to be served by Salmon Aglio Olio that early morning. I ate few plates with a very pleasant feeling before heading to his bedroom with a gentle reminder to wake up at 530am, although there are just a few hours left.

We say goodbye before heading to bed. I was scared of not waking up the next day. but, well, not just that.  a very good gentleman sleeping at the living room and before I know, I was falling into a deep sleep with a wonderful dream.


Ops, no picture this time. Because there is nothing much to see at night.
