I'd said to myself that *this* was the year I'd finally take that rail tour to Vermont to see the fall colours; so tonight I went online and started googling. Seriously, a few days on a train in New England + fare to Boston costs more than a low season plane to Tokyo-- which I began considering yesterday in a G&T-inspired fit of The Me I Used To Be. True, I wouldn't be flying low season unless I left before Dec 15 and came back after January 4: the fare jump between Dec 15th and Dec 16th is almost $300. Then again, it's either over $250 to leave a week later or well over $250 for a week's hotel in Tokyo, never mind food.

Oh, decisions, decisions. Somehow a train trip seems less fraught...
