Exciting news, folks, James has gone back to work, which means only one thing. It’s time to start daydreaming about the next holiday. And here are the hard facts that pertain to my next vacation… the itinerary has been researched, adjusted, researched, re-adjusted and checked; friends in remote cities have been contacted and reservations have been made. From 21 April to 20 May 2006, jamesbrownontheroad is going ontherails…

Thirty days, two countries and one rail pass… the North America Rail Pass has been booked and the following route has been confirmed (click on the map to enlarge)… Montréal – Schenectady – Chicago – Denver – Emeryville (San Francisco) – Seattle – Vancouver – Edmonton -Winnipeg – Churchill – Winnipeg (again) – Toronto – Montréal – Halifax – Montréal. Thirty days to pack some books, load up the iPod and sink into one of those trademark Amtrak coach class seats: the huge reclining ones designed for fat American arses.

More news will follow soon; and once the trip is underway, you can visit the travelogue-o-blog:
