This is definitely one of those “Bucket List” items on many people’s agenda. Preferable with a well-worn paperback copy of Agatha Christie’s classic to enjoy on the trip 🙂
It was 7 p.m., and a pre-dinner crowd dressed in black tie had gathered in the bar car of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, which was rattling through France on its way to Italy. My husband, Adam, and I ordered “Guilty 12” cocktails from the liveried bartender and surveyed the scene, hoping — expecting, even — to spot some sort of criminal activity or suspicious behavior.
It’s impossible to ride the midnight-blue train without imagining oneself on the pages or the movie set of Agatha Christie’s classic mystery, “Murder on the Orient Express,” in which everyone is a suspect, particularly as a new, star-studded film adaptation hits our screens.
