Trix’ Travels was created with full cooperation of Trix the cat. She has been perfectly safe and lazy during the entire process that will now be posted every other Saturday. This weeks stop: Russia.
I love this way of traveling. We are crossing through this huge country called Russia and I don’t have to lift a paw. But when I look outside, I don’t see clouds but this nice and widely stretched landscape.
We have decided to cross Russia with the help of this famous train called the Trans Siberian Railway, and it is the first time I’ve been in a train. I don’t dislike it though. We have comfortable seats, nice food, a wonderful view, and the train shimmies a bit from left to right which is a nice movement to fall asleep to. The human has used the time to read some books and write about our adventures, and I have been using the time to look outside. It is fun to stick my head out of the window a little bit and feel the cool wind in my face, I can understand why dogs like that so much. Although I did need the blond human to get all the knots out of my fur afterwards.
I understood that the train is older than the car, and I don’t quite understand why people would drive a car if they can travel with this marvelous machine. It is less loud, doesn’t stink, and you can all do something instead of one person always being excluded because they have to pay attention at the road. We just came across a whole bunch of horses, the human said they are wild. I have never seen wild horses before, without humans to ride on them. These horses looked fierce, proud to be a horse and living in these endless landscapes. This is their domain, and no one should think otherwise. They reminded me of the jaguar I met earlier, but these horses did not visit again at night to talk with me. Then again, I don’t think they would be able to keep up with the train.
