Short girl problems and the effects they have on your inter-rail experience...
If you haven't gathered from the title of this post I am what I like to call a short girl. If you don't know what this means, let me explain - I am a girl and I stand a mere 5.1 feet from the ground, thus I am a short girl. Being short has its benefits, such as when it rains you are the last to get wet so have more time to run for cover. However we short girls also suffer from what I like to call short girl problems. Whilst inter-railing I have experienced some of these problems - which if you haven't guessed already, I am going to share with you along with some solutions I have thought of...
1) You can't put your bag on the over head baggage shelf as it is too high.
2) You can't get your bag down from the over head baggage shelf.
3) Your feet don't reach the floor when you use the loo on the train as the loo is too high off the floor.
4) It is a struggle to get on to the top bunk when there is no ladder.
5) Your short legs can't walk as quick as your leggy friends and you often fall behind.
6) When standing, your friends who are all sitting on bar stools are still taller than you - they get to sit, you have to stand, where is the justice in that?
7) You have to stand on your tip toes when ordering food from fast food / alcohol joints.
So as you can see being short is rather problematic, but never fear as here are some solutions I have devised to help other short girls out there.
1) Carry a step-ladder with you every where you go.
2) Ask a nice tall man, preferably one with a beautiful accent, to help you.
3) Get over it.
I hope my solutions are of use to others suffering short girl problems.
That is all for now as we are pulling into Prague...
