Across AmericaJuly 12, 2017 in the United States
We did it. We travelled over 3,000 miles by train from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA. Wow. WE DID THAT. Kate and I quite regularly have these little moments where we check ourselves and realise what an amazing adventure we've embarked on so don't ever think we don't appreciate how lucky we both are.
We were genuinely sad to leave our 'Zephyr' this evening. Our fellow passengers and train crew had become a temporary little community most likely never to meet again.
It was my turn on the top bunk last night and I have to say it was no where near as comfortable. Needless to say I was a bit tired today and spent more of the day in our roomette snoozing and generally shutting the world out. The scenery was yet again amazing travelling through Nevada and California - the photographs really don't do it justice.
We are all settled into our San Francisco hostel now and I'm very sleepy. I promise to write a longer post next time. Pictures will have to say more than words tonight.Read more
