Um, SORRY Linda Rondstat, let me rephrase that, We are leaving on a slow train and we know when we'll be back again.
This is the second time we have taken advatntage of Via Rail's Seniors Companion fares and what a treat it is to be able to do this! My life companion has reached the age of 60 which allows him to take along a companion at no cost when travelling in Canada. Last Fall we took a short trip to Toronto by train what a pleasure not to have to race down the 401 but to sit parallel, relax and talk, and both just enjoy! My Darling drives all day-every day during the course of his work but we don't actually operate a private car any longer and I have discovered I really miss the interaction that goes on during a drive together but for the most part, the trip down the King's highway is not my idea of fun. I am a white knuckle passenger when it comes to congestion and in-town driving.
After a rally like road trip in 2007 covering 3900 km in 7 days with wonderful sights and camping along the way, I am looking forward to this trip by rail that will allow us time to get out of the rented car we will pick up at our destination and traverse a few trails and breathe the sea air.
Check out Via or other rail lines in your area and see what's available for you.
As they said back in Linda's heyday "Take it easy take the train!"
