My memorable Amtrak journey

While I was working my boss got a posting in Switzerland and was residing in San Diego, USA. His wife told me about trains that run along the coast of California an experience I should have if  I ever plan to make a trip to the US.

Years later when I went on that package tour of the US extending my stay to spend time with friends and family I had asked one of my friends to book two tickets for us for this spectacular journey – from San Jose to Oxnard.

It was exactly what my boss’s wife had described.  It was a straight course right through  Each time I looked out it was the sea and more sea.

Our train got terminated at Santa Barbara due to some fault but a bus was awaiting us for our onward journey to Oxnard where my nephew was waiting for us.  We had emailed him.  That journey by bus was an icing on the cake as we went through a lot of scenic beauty

  1. Well heck I would know this cove from anywhere. It is the La Jolla point. I would love to take this journey. I have done it but stopped in Anaheim, and I was only 8. Did you know this is where the harbor seals give birth each spring here? Just on the other side of the point.
