SmallBook4 July 1984



Greetings from Santa Barbara ,

My second wife and I took off on a three month "honeymoon" tour of Europe using a pair of first class Eurail Passes. That meant sleeping on trains during many night trips between destinations starting in Belgium where the Eurail service became available. Periodically about half the time we would actually stay in hotels along the way, but much of the time would just pull out the seats in the first class compartments making a not totally uncomfortable flat sleeping surface for the night. Each evening we studied the departure board in the train station for a long ride to someplace we had not yet visited and board that train for the over night ride... and restless sleep. It worked pretty well most of the time, though when we did decide to stay in a real hotel, the stationary comfort felt like a very welcome luxury.
