Cercanias Malaga

On the move

I quite enjoy little trips on the cercanias – local or commuter trains. Cercanías Málaga network consists of 70 km of track with two lines in operation. The trains are powered by overhead lines and run on broad Iberian gauge track. There may only be two lines but they get you to some interesting places and are clean, invariably on time and quite cheap.

On the road again

You never really notice just how bumpy the seemingly smooth roads actually are until you try to take a picture through the windscreen. Add in steering with your knees, checking your text messages and making sure your beer doesn’t spill then it’s all down to luck really.

GWR Train, UK

The scenic route

Quite an interesting trip to the UK a couple of weeks back, which began at silly o’clock in the morning for an 07:30 flght from Málaga. To start with, it was nice to have free WiFi on the plane, at Gatwick, on the GWR train and on the local bus when I arrived in Reading. The bus even had charging ports on each seat.
