We planned two night train rides to cover some of the miles. Both trips gave us good daylight hours to see the coastline and after hours to relax in our sleeper berths. HA!! Well, we expected the unexpected and it was quite an experience. Im glad there are no videos of me climbing to the THIRD bunk. Next time we had the luxury 2 bunk, (4 people)suites and the other people in our cabins brought pungent lunches. The “dining car” was somewhat informal and we had great fun playing cards with new friends. Ive come to think of of them as the disOrient Express ;- / Hey live and learn!
