We are en route – passing by lots of trees and lakes at the moment!
Riding a train is like flying first class. A world better than both flights and cars for so many reasons:
- Leg room
- Free wifi (that barely works, however)
- Inexpensive tickets (our round trip tickets still cost us around $250 per person, but compared to the $500 flights out of Charlottesville, it’s a steal!)
- No security
- No waiting to board
- Open seating
- A café with a surprisingly good selection of snacks
- Big bathrooms
- Scenic views
- AC ADAPTORS!!!
The only downfall is it takes slightly more time to get where you’re going than a plane – but not much more when you account for traffic, security, waiting at the gate, boarding, crowds, delays, baggage claim and not being able to bring your full-size perfumes!
Just finished up a packed lunch
Cheese + Jam + Greens on a homemade baguette that Karen’s friend made
And Cheese + Mustard + Greens for him [clearly we are low on food in the fridge!]
Plus los chips
And pineapple for dessert!
I’ll C U When U We Get There! [Remember that Coolio song!?]
