“Trains, Oooo I love trains” – Sheldon Cooper

If you have never had the chance to ride the train then you should definitely add it to your list of things to do.  Getting from place to place is always a question when it comes to painful diseases because one way or another your bound to be stuck on a plane, train, or in a car for hours.  So out of all the options for how to get from one place to another I would have to say that train is one of the best options I have tried.  To start off there is more leg room! Way easier to stretch out and keep you body from cramping and locking up to bad.  Second of all you can get up and move around in an aisle actually big enough for two people, no awkward butt in face moments when trying to get past someone.  Plus the whole experience in general is more comfortable being that there is more space for everything and bonus there is even a place to plug in your charger for your phone, computer, or even camera battery. 

I recently had the chance to take the Amtrak from Milwaukee to Chicago, and honestly I would do it again in a heart beat and plan to investigate into planning all flights from Chicago by way of train from Milwaukee.  There was no pressure with traffic and it didn’t matter what time we left because it takes the same amount of time no matter what the time of day is.  So forget having to add an hour for rush hour traffic, just get on and go.  There was easy access to bathrooms, and special seats with extra extra room for disabled persons, or those traveling with crutches or walkers. 

All in all the atmosphere of the train was much more relaxed than a plane or trying to drive in a car.  It really allowed me to just sit back and relax, type or sketch, and enjoy looking at the countryside going by.  The trip was only about an hour and a half which honestly was not that much more than if you were to drive, especially going into downtown Chicago.  What a blast, I can’t wait to see more and share it with all of you!

 

Always look for new ways to do things, that way nothing is out of reach!
