Post 39 trains and games.

So, it was post b'day weekend and I came up with a plan. Marijana, Robert and Matjaž spend way too much time behind the wheel and especially Marijana and Robert almost loathe public transport. So if I invite them on a train trip for my b'day they really shouldn't say no? And they didn't. I bought (1st class) tickets to Maribor, 2nd biggest city here, I invited them for late lunch there and all. Apart from rain, wind and cold it was a perfect Saturday. :)

Leaving: Our ride for the day...



Arriving: And no, we didn't take this one...







Inside looking out.


Along the way. I really like this one.


A rainy day...


Yours truly.


The monunent.


<3

 

And today.....



Let's race!!!


Fast...

 

Good time was had.

It's a nice racetrack. I've bought it a couple of years ago and this was the second time I set it up.

Trains were lovely. :)

Welcome back! :)

I think the train in the second photo is more interesting. LOL

I LOVE the expression on Igor's face on the train. And the photo of the three boys being boys is just priceless!

Yay for your perfect Saturday! :)

But the first train was definitely faster and less smelly. Igor is cute on the pic and boys really had fun! :)

So...which were you? The Viper or the Mustang? ;)
Either way, I'm sure you won...

Glad you had such a nice time on your birthday. Maribor has in interesting history.. just now looking it up thanks to you.

I like the cool train in the first picture.

And what about this?
"....Marijana and Robert almost loathe public transport..."

They almost sound like Americans.

Or at the very least, Patsy and Edina on AbFab!

Out of four cars I have (Viper, Mustang and two Formulas 1) Viper seems the best one. It's the lowest and the only one equipped with slick tires, so it's really stable and has a lot of grip and also immensely fast. Its time was always some quarter of a second faster than Mustang. Formulas are too light for some serious racing on this track, so I guess I need to buy another Viper tomorrow. :)

Yes, they sound almost like Americans, so they had to suffer a lesson. LOL

And train was pretty fast and Maribor is a lovely city. Just that bloody rain........ :)

Love the old-time train pic, esp the smoke. And the "boys will be boys" pic. Of course we would. :)

Yes, it's a Camper host. I always think of you when I post it. :)

I am sure you will be able to see some Slovene stuff soon. Some of our artists are pretty good. :)

I may say the lens is really quick that it can capture the outside view from the train. : )

And the trip was awesome! : )
