I love the train. The train loves me. So when I say that I did the Amtrak trip from DC to Boston and back in 24 hours (it’s an 8 hour ride each way), you shouldn’t read that: “I had a terrible weekend,” but instead, “I got to see the entire Eastern Seaboard from inside a comfy moving living room.” Here’s some photos:
This trip took 8 hours each way, with a few more added on waiting in the station, snacking and reading on my iPad and practicing making movies with the iPad version of iMovie. I went through 6 states plus the District on this trip (DC, MD, NJ, PA, NY, CT, MA) and vastly preferred the kind and interesting train route than the frenzied airplane hop there and back.
