Oh heyyyyy! I’m writing to you from aboard the Amtrak Surfliner train from LA to San Diego. Sorry for my slowness in posts of late; I attribute it to a cray work life plus an excess of weekend adventures – gathering plenty of fun content I’ll share soon.
Speaking of adventures, remind me why I ever drive anywhere? I visit SD fairly frequently, but this is my first time riding the Surfliner. It’s as nice as any European train I’ve ridden, PLUS they serve Stone IPA in the cafe car👌🏻. And at $37 each way it might not make sense for a big crew, but it’s more than reasonable for rolling solo (as I currently am). Round trip would be just a touch above a tank of gas but with the added advantages of cruising free wifi, reading a book (obviously), & enjoying a cold beer. Solo adventure win.
If public transportation were easier in LA, I would take the train way more. Do you take the train to get around where you live? I would love to know!
