Long train ride. I was just in Vancouver last weekend to visit family and the weekend before that was in Calgary for a Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) concert.
Why not spend your time talking to all the interesting people you can find on such a trip? I always find thats the best way to spend my time. I have an iPod but I never bring it on the plane for that reason. Maybe I just like to socialize too much for my own good lol.
Who knows you might get lucky as well.
Girls like adventure and there is something exciting about hooking up with strangers. I take it your young? Maybe its just cause I am 21 that I'm thinking like that. I guess its pretty rare for a 50+ year old to go hook up with some randoms on a long trip. Who knows though I bet some old timers are still James Bondin' it. Wahoo!
Don't let the good times and the good people pass you by!
