OHHH...I LOVE trains!!!!
I ride them every chance I can get:) There are the fast one's from DC to NY for a fun weekend...Then have taken steam train rides from a town in AZ to the Grand Canyon Rim which is a great ride for the family as it's a few hours there and back with suprises along the way:)
Beautiful train rides through BC and mountains in Canada and Northwest states...
Then the best was on my honeymoon (divorced now but good memories:) We went from London to Paris on the EuroStar..FAST and luxurious! Paris to Rome...Rome to Venice...Venice to Munich...through the Alps....along the rivers...seeing all the pretty towns and castles...(Sleeper and regular trains)
Drinking champagne and having delicious food and perfect naps with the sound of the train..
I remember waking up around 2am one night with a full moon reflecting on Lake Geneva.....ohhhh...it was gorgeous!!!
And the funny part was my ex could sleep anywhere....anytime...and I usually couldn't...well it was the total opposite on the train..I slept like a baby and poor thing was pretty grouchy!! haha....
What a fun topic..Great seeing all of your stories too everyone! There was a great special on PBS recently about great train rides:)
(Traveling is one of my favorite things to do!!!)
