I Took A 52-Hour Overnight Train Across America

I Took A 52-Hour Overnight Train Across America

HELLO FRIENDS!! This week we’re taking a 52-hour Amtrak sleeper train across the country! So, I’ve fallen over to the “overnight sleeper train” side of youtube – and I am HOOKED, people. And after watching hours and hours of train content, I decided – it was time to try my own hand at it. So we took the California Zephyr train, which travels from San Francisco to Chicago (and also the other direction as well) – across 7 states and over 2,400 miles!! We experienced everything from delays to endless sauce packets to MANY rock sightings. Would you try traveling across the US by train? And where do you think we should we go next? Or better yet, how should we get there?

    As an Indian, we have a really strong railway network. With fancy 14 days long trains that show historic cities to regular commuter trains, we won’t survive without our trains.

    Thank you so much for this. My father was an avid train hobbyist and would’ve loved this video. I would’ve loved to have been able to take an excursion like this with him. All I could think about was how beautiful the scenery was and how nice it would’ve been to experience with him. This is our first Christmas without him and this is so very timely. Blessings to you both and thank you again. 🚂❤️

    Safiya: always giving us the content we weren’t expecting, but definitely the content we needed.

  5. @TOMIKUMA says:

    Sooooo comforting
    I’m glad Safiya records these videos, because they’re really wild and somehow very inviting

    As an urban planner and train enthusiast, you have no idea how happy this video is making me 🤗🥰

    • @mahassinebrok says:

      How much is it ?

    • @KhrysAlaina says:

      @comradekaz can i ask what an urban planner is? 🙂

    • @paveladamek3502 says:

      Especially the stations in the middle of f*ing nowhere without proper mass transit connections to the respective city centers. Kind of like, you know, in the rest of the world.

    • @KCisScreaming says:

      ​@@KhrysAlaina Urban planners are people who work to shape our cities and towns. I’m applying to get into this field. Many planners work on the transportation, environmental issues, finances, etc. it’s a vast field with many different areas to work in such as non-profit, consulting, government, etc. they are the ones who have a say in if a large construction project can be done. Get feedback from the community, and lots more.

    • @comradekaz says:

      Exactly right, @KCisScreaming . Transportation planners do things like helping to decide where to place transit stops or how to implement complete streets (adding bike lanes, pedestrian improvements, bus only lanes, etc). Community planners work on creating and updating comprehensive plans and zoning codes. All planners typically work with the public in some way, whether it’s holding design charrettes, town halls, or bza meetings; helping people with applications; or distributing surveys to get feedback on how to improve the city. It’s a really diverse field and there’s lots that you can do if you decide to pursue it!

    Safiya saying “Let’s make some Illinoise!” and then apologizing for the bad joke only for Tyler to say he was about to make the same joke is honestly couple goals

    Norway is a great place for doing this. Hurtigruten is a ferry/cruise that’ll take you along the (very long) coast. And there are plenty of great train journeys, my fave is Trondheim-Bodø, a trip best taken in the daytime. But these should be done in April-September.
    Finland also has some great train journeys with what I’ve heard are some pretty sophisticated trains, hoping to try one or more of them next summer 🙂 Other than that, you guys testing Interrail/Eurail passes is something I’d highly recommend and I’m positive your audience would love it.
    (The Trans-Siberian Railway would also be great, but more affordable train options/journeys would resonate better with people.)

    Y’all gave me train fever and now I’m not gonna stop asking my boyfriend until he takes me on an overnight train adventure. 😅

    This honestly looked like so much fun and I’d definitely be down for another video like this!

    Looking thru these comments makes me realize the wide range of people who love Safiya and Tyler.
    They seem like such great people.
