Adventures On American Amtrak

In less than 4 weeks, Keith and I will be embarking on the trip of a lifetime!! We will be travelling from New York City to San Fransisco over 3.5 weeks. Everyone we have told so far have assumed that we will be travelling in an R.V, but actually, we are travelling on the American Amtrak overnighter trains!! We are taking an organised tour and have booked with Great Rail on their USA Coast to Coast tour, opting for the trip extension to Yosemite National Park to conclude the holiday. Here’s our route (not including Yosemite at the end)


We leave Heathrow on Aug 5th and will be aiming to blog along the way, mainly so we’ve got a way to remember everything we have done- but hopefully someone out there will enjoy following our adventures too- so I’ve set up a new page on our Adventures in A Motorhome site, called “Adventures On American Amtrak”, which hopefully should update as and when we find time to write. Not strictly motorhome related, I know, but we will still be on wheels, and having looked at this video of what our sleeper car on The Amtrak train will be like, we can see many similarities between our usual holiday home aka Bluebell the Motorhome and the sleeper car!!

Until Next Time,
