Yesterday I had physics exams.

But that’s not what I’m gonna talk about.

Because right after the exam was done with, I jumped in the car and drove over to Drei Annen Hohne near Braunlage in Germany’s Harz area.

Now you might wonder:

Why is he going to some place no one has ever heard of?

The answer is: trains. Vintage trains.

Drei Annen Hohne is part of the HSB (> website), also known as Harzer Schmalspurbahnen. In Drei Annen Hohne, the Brockenbahn (to Mount Brocken) diverts from the Harzquerbahn, which runs from Nordhausen to Wernigerode.

It’s a narrow-gauge train originating from the times when Germany still was a divided country. It was in eastern Germany.

When I was younger, I’ve been there quite a few times with my family. Actually, I’ve been there with my grandpa.

Since last year, I had plans to return there. But I never pulled through with them. I simply don’t had the time.

But since exams are over, and the next semester doesn’t start just yet, I decided to finally go back there. Next time I’ll actually take the train though.

How do you prefer to travel? Tell me in the comments down below.
