I’ve spent the last few days traveling from New York to Orlando. It’s been a train and a drive kind of journey and it always reminds me of how people used to travel in horse-drawn carriages. You’ll get there eventually, so you just have to enjoy the scenery as you slowly make your way through the countryside.
If you’ve never traveled by train before, I would recommend it. You won’t feel like some mid-century teenager about to go to the big city, but it does feel like you’re taking a step back in time. You’re sitting on a track that many people in the past have traveled because it was the only way to travel. Its a weird existential feeling, but I loved it.
Would I recommend traveling this way all the time? Hell no. I mean, you run out of stuff to do eventually.
