A Train Trip with My Son

Our Third Time Travelling with Amtrak

by Maria Aguilar

Guayaquil, Ecuador

My mother, my son and I decided to make a little trip on April 2010 on the train. It was a great time — my son loves trains. That's why this was our third time travelling with Amtrak.

We went from New York City to Boston. I remember my son followed all the routes between each different state (Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts) on the map. Finally, he told me how amazing was for him to be able to travel through so many cities in a couple of hours. Also, there was a passanger on the train who gave us a useful tip in order to remove gum from my son's blue jeans with an ice cube.
