PLAYLIST 4 - Can't Ignore the Train


Holidays are a great thing. Until they come to an end. After an incredible two weeks exploring the east coast of Canada the true normal is back. It feels all too real.

We took the train to Halifax and experienced things we have never seen and done before. It’s all a big blur for now. I’ll leave it to my digital camera to remind me of the details. But for now, a small comfort. In honour of that 40 hour rail experience a new playlist.

You forgot 10,000 Maniacs' "Can't Ignore the Train"!

Brilliant playlist, though. I'm not complaining one bit.
