In a couple weeks, we are taking a train trip to celebrate. We've been anticipating this trip for a year now.
It's not about the destination. It's all about the time on the train and being together, traveling first class.
Amtrak's Coast Starlight runs between Seattle and Los Angeles. Glorious scenery along the entire route. Traveling first class will give us a (tiny) private bedroom with a bathroom. We will have a private parlor car with a bartender, comfy seats and a fantastic view. The parlor car includes the opportunity to chat with others as we desire. Chatting with other travelers is appealing to both of us.
Traveling first class also gives us all our meals in the dining car. Linens, china, silver and excellent food, all while enjoying a lovely view. It sounds fabulous to me.
It's not about the destination. It's all about the time on the train, being together, celebrating 25 years.
...may there be mercy in our excitement and anticipation.
