I have trouble numerous times by train and it was a wonderful experience. You get to see the world go by at a snail’s pace, depending on the kind of train you take. I took the California Zephyr when I was first married, and lived in Sandy, Utah and I stayed with my family different members of my family that is, visiting for several weeks. 

 The ride was really wonderful via Amtrak.

It gives you time to write, think, enjoy looking at the beautiful countryside and you meet whoever sits next to you. I got lucky and on my trip from Salt Lake City to California, the lady I sat next to was a single nurse.

If you aren’t in a hurry, take a train ride and if you’re a writer and photographer like me, bring your computer and camera.  You’ll get the time you wished for to write those chapters in your book or put up some great blog posts!
