The romance of train travel

It’s a phrase we’re all familiar with, but how many of you have ever taken a train?  Here in the U.S. we travel such great distances just to get anywhere that we always seem to be flying.  That means rushing to the airport, checking our bags, being frisked by TSA before even seeing an airplane.  No romance in that.  Myself I love train travel.  Sure I haven’t had an opportunity to do it often, maybe 3 times in my life, but I’m making one this week.  It’s almost Valentine’s Day, the most romantic day of the year, so I’m planning myself a little getaway.  And I’m taking the train.  Amtrak.  East Coast.  Not sure what I’ll see, but I’m excited at the prospect of the journey.  Curious where I’m headed?  Check in next Monday at Destinations for the download.
