What a Way to Go

Today I'm dreaming of a happy voyage somewhere, sometime. These films show how it was done once upon a time, by ship, by train, and by air. Lovely scenes, lovely thoughts - so different from the mad, vulgar, barbaric world we live in now.

RMS Queen Elizabeth, 1948:

Santa Fe's Chief, 1954:

TWA Super Constellation, 1956:

I'm thinking of getting up a little tour group, as soon as my new time-space modulator arrives from Amazon. Who wants to go with me?

For some reason I can't explain a cruise just doesn't appeal to me. Especially a gay cruise which I've been offered a few times, The fact of being cruising around for partners is cool but at my age of 63 I'd be making a fool of myself.

You and me both. I've never really wanted to go on a cruise, but to travel on the old-time liners would have been a fine thing, I think.

Do it Russ - it's an unforgettable experience - oceanic travel that is, the cruise thing is far less interesting. I recall many many happy days on board ships traveling around the globe and would leave on the next one going just about anywhere if I could!

Thanks for the tip. I'll make my booking just as soon as my lottery winnings arrive - grin.
