Here is a leisurely literary pace if you like. In SM Stirling's Prince Of Outcasts (New York, 2017) -
at the end of Chapter Four, Orlaith and her companions, traveling by train:
eat tasty ham-filled crusty baguettes and nut-covered buttery blueberry tarts;
drink strong ale;
laugh about people they know;
play cards or fidchell;
play lute or flute;
doze through the night;
drink cold herb tea;
eat hard-boiled eggs, bread and fruit;
discuss the scenery -
Chapter Five describes a battle at sea -
at the beginning of Chapter Six, Orlaith and her companions, still on the train:
eat pork-and-beef sausages, Fol Epi or Tillamook cheese, flatbread, garlic-cured mushrooms and maida cake;
drink chilled fizzy mild cider.
They are going somewhere but not fast.
