Eastern and Orient Express
My new favorite adventure in life (other than the SAINTS winning the Superbowl) is the Orient Express. We boarded this train in Singapore for a 2 night/3 day journey to Bangkok. The train was absolutely wonderful. Shawn and I had our own private bathroom and cabin that looked like a sitting room during that day and at night it was changed into a sleeping room with bunk beds! Breakfast was served to us in our cabin on a silver tray and lunch and dinner were in the fancy dining car. After dinner, we were able to go to the piano bar car to listen (and sing along) to the piano player. At the back of the train was the observation car where you could watch the countryside fly by. It was a magical experience that we will never forget!
