And this time we travelled by train

We took a trip vancouver to visit my parents but this time we took Amtrak (train and bus combo). I wasn’t worried about Sophia during the 8 hour ride and sure enough it went perfectly. 

It totally helped that we took  business class for the 8 hour trip 🙂 


Fun fact: Portland station has a business lounge and they give crayons, a coloring book, and a conductor hat.

We travelled with loads of games and crafts #momwin


The only negative on this trip was me forgetting the iPad and plugged into the wall at the Seattle station while waiting to catch the connecting bus to Vancouver. Not sure how, but I actually retrieved it from lost-and-found at the Seattle train station on the way back to Portland one week later. Thank you kind travelers/station workers.


There are trains that go directly to Vancouver but the timing was better for us with the train bus combo. The one downside is that when we take the bus we have to step down with all our stuff at the border, cross border patrol then go back on the bus with our stuff. In the day it was fine but it was a little tougher at night for Sophia as she woke up during our 11pm stop. 


At least our destination stop was only 10min away from the borer and it was teta Jeddo time 


The trip back was slight rougher because baby girl caught the flu. But business class, oodles of games and crafts, and a fellow tiny passenger to share games with..oh and a box of Kleenex..made the trip pass by. 


8 hours trip..she didn’t sleep a wink till she saw her baba and got into her car seat
