Hey Karen! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. I don't blame you for avoiding flying. I hate it myself. Unfortunately, trains are so expensive, unless the trip is short. Otherwise, you have to choose between paying a fortune for a sleeper car (which I can't afford), or sitting upright for hours and hours, At least if you drive, you can decide to stop when you want and get a hotel. I wish train travel were more affordable. I think I'd definitely enjoy that more than flying.
