To tell you the truth, I am not that enthusiastic about finding summer employment - for a whole slew of reasons. I'd much rather travel - and was seriously thinking about it (for about an hour) before I got offered an interview for a seemingly nice job.
I still want to travel though, and - even if I get the job - will still have time to do it.
I was playing around on Amtrak's website, just for kicks, and made up a trip with several stops (D.C., Providence R.I., Boston, and back). My search returned results for 4 different tickets totaling 388 bucks. Not bad. But - I played around with departure times a little and managed to get that price down to only 248 bucks!
We'll have to see what I end up doing, but knowing I can go so many places so cheaply is exciting.
