As part of our European adventure this summer, Derek and I decided to give the kids the experience of a sleeper train. They had an incredible time. Me? Not so much. It was definitely not as nice as I remember from my college days of backpacking around Europe. Maybe it was the ridiculously hot train car or the extra firm "bed" or maybe my standards have changed a bit in the last decade. Nevertheless, I am glad we did it once. I am even more glad that we are only doing it once!
