For almost the entire month of June, my boyfriend Jake will be visiting his family in Florida. His brother, mother, and grandparents live there. A few months ago he asked if I was interested in going, and I decided to go for a week’s vacation, then head back on June 16th. I haven’t taken many week-long trips recently; in fact, the last one was most likely in 2009.
The interesting part is that we are arriving by train. Jake isn’t too keen on planes, so he opted for a sleeper-car through Amtrak. The catch? It takes almost a full 24 hrs to get you there.
Today we are working a half day then taking NJ Transit to Newark-Penn Station to grab our train. Although it’s a lot of travel time, a part of me is actually pretty excited to travel by train.
Stay tuned for more updates, since we will be visiting the Everglades!
