This is best described through a poem what I wrote!! LOL
There was a competition with something to win
So not to enter would be a sin
We have come away
With places to stay
So I should have a lot to say
So I racked my brain
And remembered the train
Becky told a good story
And these didn't bore me
Scott dressed as a Moose
Although with the truth he was a little loose
Lots of good food from Allanah
And if still hungry you could go to the back for a Bannanah
We saw some Bears
And as we weren't in Gold we didn't have to go upstairs
The first day we saw a tree....tree...tree
Had lots of drinks for free...free...free..
Lots of views to see..see...see
And even had somewhere to go for a Wee...Wee...?
Sorry if it's getting crude
I don't mean to be rude
But I couldn't think of anything else to say
But we would soon arrive in Vancouver to stay.
To sum up our experience on The Rocky Mountaineer. Some passengers used the train to get to where they wanted to go, others as part of a package and others as a once in a lifetime experience. It's certainly something I would recommend for a Bucket list and we really enjoyed it.
The best description was one that my wife, Susan, said it was like a first class plane journey on wheels. Everything you needed was on hand and the staff went out of their way to help and make the journey memorable. Our particular thanks to Allanah who sorted out our weird dietary needs (We like plain food).
As for my poem. It's only the second one I have written in forty years since being forced to write them at school. You may say this is not surprising but must realise true genius often takes time to reveal itself!
