Do you get excited by planes, trains, and automobiles and all the places those contraptions can take you?
Are you always planning, not your next trip, but the one after that? Me too!
The anticipation of a new trip or the memory of a journey from the past can can brighten even the cloudiest day.
Travel is one of my favorite things.
"Live with no excuses and Travel with No Regrets" - Oscar Wilde
The California Zephyr is a popular route on Amtrak from Chicago to San Francisco (Emeryville) stopping in Denver, Co., supposedly daily. We booked a sleeper car since the trip from Denver to Martinez (the stop closest to our home) is supposed to take around 30 hours.
We start our visit to the Czech Republic by heading to the town of Pilzen about 45 miles west of Prague to visit Pilsner Urquell, the home of the first “pilsner” lager. Pilsner Urquell has been brewing the same recipe from this location since 1842.
