I watched a wonderful program last night starring David Suchet.. (he's Hercule Poirot from Agatha Christie's mysteries).  I love this guy.  He's so authentic looking and plays the part magnificently.

He was not, however, playing a part but rather was a passenger on the gorgeous Orient Express train.  What a piece of history that is.  The story about its origins and trials throughout the war etc was so interesting.  He spoke to several passengers and they told us why they were on the train.  One father had purchased a ticket for his daughter's birthday .. (*lucky daughter).  Another had bought the ticket for his mother as she had wanted to go on the train before she passed away. However she had died a month earlier so him and his wife were now on the journey as an anniversary present to themselves.  There were another couple on a honeymoon.    You can click here for prices ... (if you are very rich that is and want to make a booking)..... but heavens sake .. how wonderful it would be.  I'll keep buying those lottery tickets....  *(s)  It's a lovely site and you will see so much of the train's interior and journey.
