One Fine Adventure: Shanghai, China

The Shanghai Maglev Train that operates between the Longyang Road Station and Shanghai Pudong International Airport. I love the experience of traveling on the Maglev and the added expensive of the trip versus the route via Shanghai Metro seems to justifiable. Outside of the drastic reduction in commute time, the maglev arrives at terminal two and the walk from the station to the international check-in counters is very short. If I am being honest the only reason I take this route is because of the 431 km/h (268 mph) top speed.

In reality the maglev is not terribly convenient when you have to get off the metro, get to the elevated station, buy a ticket, get through security, and then wait for a maglev to leave. If you have missed a recent train it could easily take longer than simply staying on the metro line. I should really have thought my previous trips through a bit more. I am now regretting my decisions.

I am openly appealing to anyone who might be interested in printing and displaying my images.
