2 Days on a Train

For some reason we thought it would be a good idea to get a 49 hour train from Sacramento to Chicago (2000 miles). It was cheaper than flying and we wanted to see the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. It also means we get to go through 7 states; California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado (to a little place called Aspen!), Nebraska, Iowa and Illinois.

We stocked up on DVD’s so we have enough to last us 2 days, so far we have watched Adventureland and Hot Tub Time Machine :). We have a tiny cabin with 2 seats that turn into a bed and another fold up bed above, so we have bunk beds! The cabin is only 2m x 1m but at least we have somewhere to sleep!


  1. Hi Paul & Aim’s,

    Your cabin sounds a bit of a tight squeeze. The scenery looks beautiful. Thanks for the post cards. Really missing you both now. Glad that we will be able to see you before we go on holiday.

    Lots of love to you both

    Mum xx

  2. I expected the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this!! 🙂 Hope u have both been having as much fun as Harry & Lloyd on your trip through Colorado!

    Thanks for the postcard! Missing u lots xx

  3. I was thinking the same thing. That John Denver’s full of shit, man.

    Miss youuuuu

    Love Claire xxx
