Guess what I did this weekend

I was on a train. For two whole days! THE EMPIRE BUILDER (Amtrak sure know how to name a route) between Portland OR and Chicago IL. I met a one-armed man, a nice elderly couple with a son on an army base, a truck drive who didn't want to pay his taxes, a mennonite couple, a professor, a gay dining car waiter, a lounge car attendant named Spiro (Greek), and loads of other people.

I also saw lots of lovely scenery. And took many, many photos. All that remains now is... choosing how many to upload.   ...    See you in a couple of weeks :-)

Udover den halve søsterboble lyder det helt perfekt. Men jeg glæder mig altså til at få dig hjem igen!

what country are you from?

i never imagine that people from other
nations want to come here, because we
always want to travel THERE!

@myletterstoemily - hello! And, may I add - Welcome!

I'm from Denmark and recently had the pleasure of spending a month working in Portland. I've been to the States before but only for 7-10 days at a time so it was great with a long stay for a change. And spending 2 days on a train truly makes you appreciate what.a.BIG.place.it.is!! Wonderful, too!

Hopefully I'll pull myself together and post a few photos soon :-)
