Good morning!!!

Let me tell you, it was another early morning for me! I set my alarm for 4:30 AM (ick!) and I was out the door by 5:00 AM.

I planned to catch the bus to South Station, but (not surprisingly) it never showed up! I swear, the MBTA is sooooo unreliable when you need it! I ended up hailing a cab and arrived at South Station about 2 minutes later. I’m $7 less rich, but it was well worth it for the peace of mind knowing I wouldn’t miss my train!


South Station was pretty quiet at 5:30 this morning.


By 5:45, however, the place was bumpin’ with travelers.


When I arrived at South Station, I used the Amtrak Self-Serve Ticketing kiosk to print my tickets. I’m always worried about running into some sort of snag when I travel, but getting my tickets was no issue at all. It took just 30 seconds!

Once I had my tickets in hand, coffee was a priority!


I popped over to Cosi for a cup of their Cafe Blend. Ahhhhh!


Around 6:00 AM, it was time to board the Acela to NYC!


The Acela was so nice inside! The seats are comfy and spacious, and there’s plenty of room to spread out and store your things. There’s also a bathroom in each car, which is much-needed for people like me who love coffee, but have small bladders!


Once I got settled, I whipped out my laptop and got to work. Unfortunately, the Acela doesn’t have Wi Fi, which I found hard to believe, but I kept busy with other work.


Here we are whizzing through Mystic, Connecticut!

I wish Mal was here. He’s a big fan of trains.


Guys, I absolutely love traveling.

My blogging “career” has taken me to so many amazing places:

And soon, I’m headed to San Francisco for the Foodbuzz Festival and perhaps Chicago in December for a blogger event.

If you had told me this is what I would be doing with my life, even just a few years ago, I would have never believed you! I still can’t believe it myself sometimes!

More to come from NYC!
