The Seventh Train by Jackie Carreira













There are some stories that are so improbable that it is quite possibly true. This is one such story!

I am also having a problem with blogger/computer? that does not allow me to place the post in the position I want to.

Elizabeth has invented this idea - with the idea of going nowhere fixed, having no idea of what the future holds, or rather where the future will take her. She gets on to the seventh train at a station, goes four stops then gets down and does it again - and again.  When she accidentally meets up with one character, then it becomes two, then they rope in a third the quartet becomes almost a family sharing their love of the unknown.

I was a tad bit envious of the lifestyle, the freedom of choice but it takes a brave soul and you do have to put something by to handle this on your own for a feasible amount of time.

I loved the quirkiness of it in total contrast to the sobriety of the character Elizabeth, the bounciness of one, the smart ass attitude of one and the normalcy of the other.

I like the premise of this. We once did something similar when we were teenagers for a laugh.

Have a great week

That does sound quirky - in a good way.
