Got up at 5am to take the bus 🚌 to the train station 😴. Not sure 🤔 what to expect from the bullet train as my first time. Started out with a bit of side to side sway and I was a little nervous that it was going to make me nauseous 🤢 but once it got up to its 274 Kph it was super smooth and very enjoyable! Plenty of legroom and lovely scenery.
Both the Jinan and Beijing stations were nice with nice shops and restaurants. Grabbed an egg McMuffin to Beijing and a Starbucks back to Jinan for a taste of home, 👅 yummy!
