It’s been some time, hasn’t it?
In November, I went to Montreal for a friend’s bachelorette party. Rather than driving up there, I decided to take the Amtrak on the Adirondack route. It was a good experience. I wanted to take the train, mostly so I could just turn off my brain for a long time and not have to worry about concentrating on driving for long periods.
It was thoroughly pleasant. I had a nice lunch on both routes and it was very easy to navigate. I was able to get access to a power outlet and use the wifi easily.
Turning off my brain was a great bonus for this method of traveling. I got a lot of reading done.
Unfortunately, November was a little too late to see lovely autumn leaves turning, but it was still a great, safe, and easy way to get to Montreal from New York City.
