My next adventure is set! The majority of my students have Spring Break at the same time, and even if they aren’t going away they won’t want to work during that time anyway. What does this mean for me? I can either sit on my a$$ and relax at home doing whatever, or I can do something crazy. You know me by now. So here it is…I will be taking a train around/across America. Provided that all goes well with train schedules, I will even have some time to explore Seattle, Chicago, New York, and New Orleans! There is a guy who did a train ride from Emeryville, CA to New York, and his experience can be viewed here. It was a cool that someone has already done that, but just going across America isn’t good enough for me. I want mooooore! (sung in the tune of Part of Your World from Little Mermaid).
Anyway, my plans are as follows:
Emeryville to Seattle (spend the night and have time during the next day)
Seattle to Chicago by way of the northern states (dinner in Chicago)
Chicago to New York (spend the night and have time during the next day)
New York to New Orleans by way of the eastern states (spend the night and have time during the next day)
New Orleans back up to Chicago (breakfast and lunch in Chicago)
Chicago to Emeryville by way of midwest and southwest, stop in Los Angeles, then up to Emeryville! Then back home and back on the grind until the next adventure (South Africa).
