I need to start this post by saying that taking the Gautrain to work was definitely the highlight of my week!
When my good friend @HayleyM_ suggested that I meet her at the Rosebank station one morning and make our way into work, I jumped at the opportunity! Being a seasoned commuter, she gave me the “Gautrain for Dummies” overview and told me to meet her at the ticketing office just after 7:30. From the minute I arrived, the whole process was so easy, so simple and so awesome!
I was like a tourist and took millions of photos. Thanks Hayley for being so patient with me. I felt as if I was in a different country! I was totally overwhelmed by the hussle and bustle of commuters, the vibe, the excitement. I was so surprised at how many young people were on the train!
THE DROP OFF AND ENTRANCE… HASSLE-FREE
BUYING A TICKET… THE EASIEST THING IN THE WORLD TO DO
STANDING ON THE PLATFORM… FELT JUST LIKE BEING IN LONDON!
PARK STATION… WOW! WHAT A DIFFERENCE.
BUS STOP… A STONE’S THROW AWAY FROM THE OFFICE
CATCHING THE BUS…NO DELAYS, ON TIME (WE HAD TO RUN)
(to note: the Gautrain buses around my hood are empty, but they are crammed chock-a-block in town and close to the stations)
I love it! It’s high on my list of the things I love about Jozi! I cannot wait to catch it again!
