There's more space than on planes, less stingy budget requirements, and you don't have to go through security and show up hours early.
And you can watch movies on your laptop from the get-go.
Like Two Weeks Notice - Sandra Bullock is awesome!
The Acela even has WiFi, but the bandwidth isn't great enough to stream movies or listen to music online.
But wait, this is a WIAW! Here are some on-train travel snacks:
5th Avenue and Madison are also faves, of course. Isn't the exterior of the Bulgari store gorgeous?
Leaving NYC is always a bit sad.
But when you're off to Nashville just a couple days later, you can't really complain!
Even when you're flying US Airways and, as always, facing major delays.
Things I didn't know: Nashville has good apples.
I'm not sure what type of apple the above is, but it's my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE.
Fresh veggies with PB dip and a Lara Uber bar make a great snack while you wait for room service. Room service was usually pretty snappy, but they were a little slower when I ordered late (around 9 or 10pm) so this snack helped tide me over.
Amd See's Candies chocolates are absolutely delightful as a late night treat with guilty pleasure reality TV and a good book.
Dominex Eggplant are The Eggplant People and their vegan veggie burgers are amazing! They're definitely up there on my top faves list for veggie burgers, right alongside Dr. Praeger's California Veggie Burgers.
These eggplant burgers are super quick and easy to prepare (just microwave the frozen patties for a few minutes on each side). They're flavorful and hearty, but also all-natural and a whole food source of antioxidants - not to mention a veggie serving!
