Our Thoughts


I’ve always dreamed to take a train trip.   One evening while we were camping, the two oldest were fishing with dad and the two youngest and I sat down and started watching The Big Train Trip.

The voyage starts in Toronto, ON (about 4 hours from where we live) and goes up to Vancouver, BC.   Five provinces are covered with this trip and you will learn quite a bit about the various jobs and things to do on a train like this one.

It was interesting to see the landscape changing through the trip.   We saw the cook in his kitchen, how the train is taken care of, the work of the engineer, and so much more.

Jérémy, age 5, asked me if I ever took a trip like this.  I told him no and that I don’t think I would be able to since Daddy says he doesn’t feel good on that kind of transportation.   To this he looks at me and says:

I want to take a train trip with you mommy!

Which is repeated by my 3 years old daughter.   Snuggle time between the three of us!  

Maybe one day I will take a trip like this.  It would be fun and quite different that what I am used to.  Maybe I should include this in my what I want to do in my lifetime list…

If you have a child interested in trains (or a spouse for that matter), I would suggest that you get the Big Train Trip and let them watch it.   The 50 minutes are packed with a fun adventure and learning possibilities.   Discover the Canadian West and everything surrounding a train trip with The Big Train Trip DVD!
