Ever since he was a baby, my son has been fascinated by everything that moves, from cars to planes. But trains have always been one of his favorite means of transport, and I've lost count of the amount of play trains and rail tracks we have at home.
My kids are used to ride on the train from our house to Lisbon, but while the school was out I decided to take my son to Santa Apolónia, the old Lisbon central train station, from where trains to the various parts of the country still depart. This train station holds a lot of childhood memories for me, and I hadn't been there in a while, so it was nice to go back too.
We were there for a long time because we of course had to see at least a couple of trains depart and others arrive. My son had to cross all authorized crossings over the rails, check the size of the engines and even race a departing train until the end of the platform.
Overall, it was a great afternoon and it makes me wish I had more free time to spend with him like this.
Enjoy the rest of your week,
