Dominik and I traveled across the USA for 11 days using Amtrak. We bought a 15 day pass and went from NYC-Chicago-Kansas City-Grand Canyon-Los Angeles-Portland-Seattle. It was wonderful!!!
1. Being able to see so many parts of the country, without either of us having to drive. We could read books, snooze, look out of the "Observation Deck" (in the photo above). It was so nice to be traveling without one of us having to always stay awake and get a backache.
