    Ukraine Train Ride (1st Class) from Kiev to Lviv travel vlog

    October 19, 2019


    Well hello hello. It is almost time to check out of our apartment
    here in Kiev (Киев). Our host is going to be coming any minute. Any minute. So we have to finish packing up. Yeah, like what happened to the what we had
    9 nights just boom. Oh my gosh. We had over a week here. Crazy. Yeah. That is one of the fastest stays we’ve ever
    had anywhere. The time just flew by. We were tired, we also had a lot of work to
    do and we also just really enjoyed being here so. Yeah. So it is time to get going. Sam has been. I’ve actually been responding to YouTube comments. Youtube comments. Yeah, getting caught up. I’m way behind on that too. Sam’s favorite thing. Favorite thing. I love when you guys leave us comments. I try to get back to all of them. Yeah. I know I’m really behind because of last week
    but. I read them but Sam answers. Yeah, that is true. Um but yeah anyways I need to finish packing
    so we’ll see you guys in a bit and yeah we’ll be heading to the train station soon. Beep noise. Update. Nice and sweaty because there are no escalators
    or elevators in any of the metro stations we’ve seen. At least not to get into the station. Yeah. But anyways we’re at Tietrana. Two stops to the train station. Let’s go. But there is going to be a nice long escalator
    ride to get to the platform. Yeah. These escalators here in Kyiv (Київ) are
    epic. Absolutely epic. Train sounds. Made it to the train station. We sure have. Now that we’re leaving Kiev (Київ), I
    want to talk about my favorite experiences here in this city. That is riding the metro. Metro. First reason I like it is that it is so cheap. It is only 5 in local currency which is actually
    less than 20 US cents per ride. So you’ve gotta love that. And then the other thing that is really cool
    is just like how deep it is underground. You have these epic escalator rides to get
    there. And then but the third thing that is kind
    of cool is just how busy it is too. Like all times of day that we’ve taken rides
    it has been packed. Like people really use it and you can see
    why. It is affordable and it is just a great way
    to get around. And it is also very rustic and noisy and makes
    a lot of you know. It makes a lot of noise while you’re on it
    and you also like it has very abrupt stops and sometimes if you don’t brace yourself
    you actually feel like you’re going to get like tossed over. But it is really cool. Definitely take the metro if you’re in Kiev
    (Київ). So we’ve made it to the train station. Tickets in hand. And we’ve just looked at the departure board. I would like to point out that is the worst
    departure board I’ve ever seen in my life. First of all the letters are like bright red
    and neon green. And you stare at it for like 3 seconds and
    it starts blinding you. So not very helpful but we did find another
    old fashioned sign that actually announces our train so we’ve got a bit of time. Going to get some lunch and yeah that is the
    update. Hahaha. What do you got? We are having a McDonalds lunch just because
    it was convenient. Yeah. So large french fries, orange juice, chocolate
    muffin for the road and I’m water fasting so I get to watch you eat. Sam is on one of his fasts. Yeah. Anyways, sometimes McDonald’s is actually
    not a bad place to hang out if you’re at a busy station especially if you’ve got time
    to kill. Because you know like you kind of you’re getting
    reliable food, you know what you’re getting anyways. The other thing too is like you can sit down
    for a while and like you can stay you can kill time. And the other thing that is kind of cool is
    that you get access to decent washrooms too because you don’t know if you’re always going
    to get those in certain stations. So we have all of that and we have quite a
    bit of time to kill. Our train leaves at shortly after 2 right? Yep. And right now it is only 12:54. Well someone has picked up a new talent. One of my many talents. Learning to read Cyrillic. I know the first one says muffin chocolate. That is my chocolate muffin. This one says free which is my fries. And the next one is juice. So yeah. And you know what? All of that food came to less than $3 US dollars. That is like about two seventy five or something. Pretty cheap. How are them fries? Crispy. Crispy. Maybe double or triple fried. Seriously? Okay, so we’ve killed all the time we needed
    to. And so our train is leaving in about a half
    hour so we’re back in the station. We are platform 2. Now we just have to find that. And it is quite a grand station I must say. It is beautiful. Okay, so we’ve got our seats. And what is really cool is we upgraded to
    1st class. It wasn’t that much more. We’ll let you know the price of the ticket
    a little bit later on. But if you take a look over here you can see
    how it has different classes. So if it was second class there would be 6
    people but because it is only first there is 4 of us and that gives us lots of rooms
    for our baggage. We’ll show you as we go in. Check out that. And that is where we are sitting. We have basically those 3 seats on the bottom. Right there. Alright, so now would be a good time to talk
    about the tickets. And it is noisy. The train is just taking off. Anyways, we paid just over 500 which is about
    roughly $20 US dollars and this is for the fastest train possible to Lviv (Львів). And it takes about five hours and forty minutes
    so we’re going to be on here for a little while. But it is quite comfortable. I’m glad that we paid for 1st class because
    we’re going to be able to get some work done. Apparently, there is tea service so hopefully
    we get that too. What are you having? Chai. Tea. Complimentary? I think we paid for it. Haha. This is so hot. And we in case you’re wondering we are moving. English breakfast. I like the cups. They are nice and fancy. Look at that. I think it is just a glass of fancy cup. Sam has been sleeping the whole time. Train station noise. And just like that we’ve been teleported to
    our apartment here in Lviv (Львів). Um, so yeah we arrived right on time. Our AirBNB host was waiting for us at the
    train station. We hopped in his car and he drove us here
    which is so rare. No one has ever picked us up. Which was super awesome. Um but yeah we’re really really hungry so
    we are going to save the apartment tour for another day. Another video. Right now we need dinner. Let’s go. We’ll take you along for food though. Street noises. So we are staying in a super residential neighborhood
    so there are not a whole lot of restaurants around but we found a hotel and they have
    a restaurant. So we’re in here. Right now we are the only guests. The last couple just left but they have like
    all of these animals. Looking at me everywhere. Look. There is a cow looking at you. Cow. And where is the other one? There is goats and sheep. Where are those? Okay, let’s get a tour. Hi, cow. Over here are the goats and sheep. And last but not least we’ve got a bird. Food is here. Food is here. I’m so hungry. Like I said I was water fasting earlier on. 24 hours without food so I’m ready to eat. So this is varenyky. Varenyky. Sorry and these are like the dumplings. The Ukrainian dumplings. They are delicious. We’ve been eating them a lot since we’ve come
    to the Ukraine (Україна). What filling did you get this time? I got potato and cheese. Ooh. And let’s take it for a swim in the sour cream. Sour cream. Everything tastes better with sour cream in
    the Ukraine (Україна). You know the food came really fast. I’m impressed. It is so good. I honest can’t give you a very truthful assessment
    I’m so hungry I think anything would be tasty to me right now. It is all wonderful. It is all wonderful right now. And for myself I ordered the potato pancakes
    with chicken and a mushroom cream sauce. Mmmhmm. It looks pretty good. Sam is already eating out of my bowl. I haven’t even had any yet. It is good. It is like a stack. It is a stack. That is a huge stack of potato pancakes. It is really good in a creamy sauce. Oh my gosh. The creamy sauce is awesome and it also has
    mushrooms too. Chicken. Mmmm. Isn’t that awesome? Oh my gosh. Wow. This place is good. This is a hotel restaurant. We may be coming back here. It is a hotel restaurant. I think it is the only restaurant nearby our
    apartment. Hahaha. We’ve just finished our entrees. What are the options now? What could happen? Well, we’ve been waiting a little while. It is either going to be chicken, a cheque,
    chicken and cheque or none of the above. Chicken steak. Oh, wonderful. Thank you. It came. It came. It came. Wonderful. Wonderful. A second ago it came and they offered us a
    cheque so we thought maybe they just didn’t get the main. They forgot the chicken. But now it is here. And it is a lonely chicken. It is not bad. It is cooked with barbecue sauce. Nice. Mmmhmm. I’m hungry. And this is it. We’re ending off the video. We’re tired. We’re well fed. Ready for bed. I don’t know why but traveling by train it
    always just makes me so sleepy and like leaves me all groggy. I think it is the rocking back and forth. Um but yeah Sam is waving goodbye. He’s going to watch some Youtube and go to
    sleep. I’m so tired. And that is that. We are really excited to be in this city (Lviv)
    and we look forward to sharing some videos with you guys soon. But for now goodnight. Goodnight everyone. Bye.

    Why Trains Blow Their Horns So Much

    Why Trains Blow Their Horns So Much

    October 18, 2019


    Last night, I was just drifting off to a sound
    asleep and starting the nicest dream –when it happened again! A train whistle off in the distance woke me
    up from my slumber, and not for the first time, I must say! So, do trains absolutely have to blow their
    horns so often and so loudly? The truth is that yes, they do, and the main
    reason for that is safety. Locomotive engineers are required to honk
    every now and then, which is written down in the regulations called the “Final Rule
    on the Use of Locomotive Horns.” So, as you can see from the name, all this
    honking business is pretty strict and obliges trains to make four blasts approximately 20
    seconds before they reach a crossing. But that’s not all! Trains whistles and horns are an effective
    method of communication! There is a whole system of locomotive horn
    signals, where different sound combinations mean totally different things! How about I tell you about the most common
    train signals so that you can understand what’s happening out there, on the railroad tracks,
    every time a train honks? So, if you hear a number of short whistles,
    it means that the engineer is trying to attract attention to the moving train. For example, it may sound when a person or
    animal gets on the track. Just one short whistle indicates that the
    train is about to stop. One long whistle-like sound can be heard when
    the train is coming to a halt, and the engineer applies the air brakes. The pressure inside them gets equalized, and
    you can hear a loud shrill sound. Also, the train gives one long signal when
    it’s approaching a station. At the same time, two long honks mean that
    the train has released the brakes and is ready to continue its journey. Three short whistles made by an unmoving train
    mean that the locomotive is about to move backward. One long whistle followed by a short one means
    that the train is nearing some equipment or people working on or near the track. Also, train engineers often have to show that
    they’ve acknowledged hand signs or radio signals by tooting the horns. But if the train sounds four short whistles,
    it means that the engineer hasn’t understood the signal and asks for it to be repeated. However, the signal you probably hear more
    often than others is two long whistles followed by one short and another long whistle. Trains have to honk this way every time they
    approach a grade crossing, which is a place where a railroad track and a road or two railroad
    tracks cross at the same level. And this signal, in particular, is no laughing
    matter. The thing is that nowadays trains have an
    extremely tight schedule. As a result, several trains often follow one
    another with a very little break in between. But pedestrians and drivers who are waiting
    to cross the railway track don’t always realize that there might be more than one train approaching. Hurry makes people dart across the track as
    soon as one of the trains has passed. And if there is low visibility, or the next
    train is nearing the crossing without making much noise, these attempts to save time usually
    end very, very badly. It’s no wonder that lots of people, especially
    those who live not far from railroad tracks, have repeatedly been complaining about the
    shrill sounds disrupting their peaceful lives. That’s why Florida once tried to ban locomotive
    horns. However, peace and quiet didn’t last long. After the number of accidents at grade crossings
    had almost doubled, the ban was lifted. On the other hand, there exist so-called “quiet
    zones.” These are the areas where train engineers
    aren’t allowed to honk. But in this case, every single public crossing
    in that area must be equipped with either heavy, four-quadrant gates designed specifically
    to prevent cars and people from straying onto the track or a pedestrian overpass. So, do you hear a lot of train honking in
    the area where you live? Tell me about this in the comment section
    below! By the way, I’ve been forever wondering why
    trains can’t just stop as soon as a train engineer sees something or somebody on the
    railroad track? I mean, why all these precautions, honking,
    and railroad signal? It turns out that any heavy object moving
    at high speed can actually stop pretty fast. And since every wheel of a train has its own
    brake, they’re supposed to be able to reduce the train’s speed in no time, right? Well, it might work this way — only if trains
    moved on concrete roads! But a train’s steel wheels move over steel
    tracks. That’s why the friction between the two is
    twice lower than the friction between a car’s rubber tires and a road covered with asphalt. Besides, engineers mustn’t brake too harshly
    because, in this case, the train’s wheels are likely to lock. Besides, it tends to damage heavily not only
    the train’s steel wheels but also the track itself. Plus, the braking system on trains is very
    different from that on cars or buses. That’s why if an engineer tries to bring the
    train to a sharp stop, it may lead to the rail cars toppling or derailing. It means that during braking, the pressure
    must be released slowly and steadily, and the longer a train is, the more slowly its
    engineer has to brake. But besides being not very good at braking,
    trains also have big problems with going uphill! See for yourself: a 30-degree incline doesn’t
    present any difficulties for a car. We, humans, can deal with super-steep inclines
    of around 80 degrees! But for high-speed trains, the maximum incline
    they can climb is only 2.5 to 4 degrees, while freight trains can’t make it if the incline
    is more than 1.5 degrees. If they absolutely have to conquer a bit steeper
    incline, there must be one more additional locomotive in the back, which helps to push
    the train from behind. The short answer which can shed light on this
    mystery is that trains are (and I mean it) heavy. Plus, their steel wheels don’t have such a
    great grip on the steel track underneath. Add gravity pulling the train down to the
    lack of friction and slipperiness, and it gets clear why trains avoid going uphill. In fact, it works in both directions, and
    a heavy train going downhill can end up in a crash. And still, some trains manage to climb not
    very steep hills with the help of several locomotives pulling them. There are even some “helper districts” located
    near particularly steep inclines! That’s where helper locomotives, which bring
    the train over to the top of the hill, are based. They can be coupled to the rear, the front,
    or even the middle of the train. After helping the struggling train to travel
    up, helper locomotives return back to the bottom of the hill to wait for the next train
    that needs assistance. Another way out for a heavy train that has
    to go uphill is to “double the hill.” This term means that the train leaves one
    part of itself at the bottom while taking the rest of the cars to the top. After that, the locomotive returns to pick
    up the part which was left behind and pulls it to the top as well. Then the two parts get coupled again, and
    the train continues with its journey. On the other hand, any unfavorable conditions,
    such as rain, snow, or fallen leaves on the track, can prevent a train from going up a
    steep hill, even with the help of additional engines! So there you have it: Some great information
    about trains to keep you on the right track! Hey, if you learned something new today, then

    How to get from Haneda Airport to Tokyo | japan-guide.com

    October 18, 2019


    Haneda Airport is Japan’s busiest airport. Located only 15 minutes from central Tokyo it is much more conveniently positioned than Narita Airport. Traditionally, Haneda has handled the majority
    of the city’s domestic arrivals and departures. However since it was expanded in 2014 the airport has been servicing an increasing number of international flights. With this in mind, here is a brief overview of how to maneuver through Haneda Airport
    and get to downtown Tokyo for passengers arriving on international flights. After de-planing, the first stop is immigration. To expedite the process, each passenger should
    have their disembarkation form filled out before approaching the counter. Here, an officer will ask a few questions
    about your trip, scan the fingerprints of your index fingers and take your photo. Assuming everything goes well, you can move
    on to the baggage claim. Everyone arriving on an international flight
    into Narita Airport except for those connecting to
    another international flight must collect their checked luggage here this includes passengers connecting
    to domestic flights. With baggage in hand, Customs is next. Each family will need to hand in a Customs Declaration Form which should be filled out ahead of time. Passengers with items to declare
    should use the red lanes while those with nothing to declare should go through the green ones. Finally, after clearing Customs, you will
    enter the public area of the terminal where there are many useful services you may want
    to take advantage of before leaving the airport, such as Currency exchange & ATMs Wi-Fi and SIM card rentals Information counters Baggage delivery and storage Showers, Nap rooms, and lounges Rental car pick-up and many more Also, if you purchased a Japan Rail Pass,
    this can be picked-up at the JR EAST Travel Service Center located in the arrival lobby near the Tokyo Monorail ticket gates. If you are transferring to a domestic flight,
    or need to get to another building there are free shuttle buses that operate
    frequently between the terminals. When you’re ready to leave the airport and
    head into the city, there are many options to consider In the basement is the Keikyu train which is accessible from the second floor. The first floor has buses and taxis and the third floor has the Tokyo Monorail which can be accessed from
    either the second or third floors. When choosing between train options, here
    are some important points to consider The Tokyo Monorail goes directly to Hamamatsucho
    Station which is on the popular JR Yamanote Line. The trip takes around 15min and does not allow
    for seat reservations. It is also worth mentioning that while the
    monorail has space to store luggage, the Yamanote Line does not, and during rush hours both
    can get quite crowded. Next are the trains operated by the Keikyu Railway. These go primarily to Shinagawa Station, where
    you can transfer to the Yamanote Line or continue on to the Asakusa Subway Line which leads
    to Asakusa and Tokyo Skytree, and some of the trains even continue as far as Narita Airport. Keep in mind that these are regular commuter
    trains which do not have dedicated luggage storage spaces or reserved seating. Aside from trains, the other options for leaving
    the airport are Airport Limousine buses which go to a variety of locations throughout Tokyo and the surrounding areas And taxis which are the most expensive option,
    costing between 5,000 to 11,000yen or even more depending on where you’re headed. Lastly, in our opinion Haneda is one of the
    most enjoyable airports in all Japan. With a plethora of dining and entertainment
    options in the international terminal it’s a fun place to spend time and an ideal airport to have a long layover. We hope this video helps you know what to
    expect when navigating through Haneda Airport. For more information about Haneda or to watch
    another video, click the links on the screen now or head over to japan-guide.com, your
    comprehensive, up-to-date travel guide first-hand from Japan. Thanks for watching, and be sure to subscribe
