Trip to PEI

27 Jun

Our railway station experience in Quebec was once again exceptional. The rail agent was such a happy person, he showed us his gold necklace which had a smiley face engraved on it, and told us about his smiley tattoo!! He recommended a restaurant in the train station which was very good; hip, modern, and elegant and obviously frequented by locals. Has special appetizers for Wednesday which turned out to be large enough portions for us to make a dinner. Had coconut encrusted shrimp with dijon curry sauce, warm goat cheese, pear, and arugala salad and chow mein (no noodles just crisp, freshly prepared vegetables). Unfortunately, this train ride is a bit different than “The Canadian” (train from Vancouver to Montreal). Newer cars which are very clean but much smaller compartments, beds narrower and hallways skinny. Plus, biggest disappointment was breakfast – not gourmet like the other train where everything was cooked on real stove versus microwave, sent back microwaved omelette and got oatmeal. Glad we’re only going to Moncton and then renting car. New doesn’t always mean better đŸ˜¦ One really nice thing, they have the same lounge car at the end of the train which was built in 1952. Will include picture. Image
