TRAINSIPPING SEASON 2: CHICAGO TO SEATTLE


As the train sailed across the tracks, over an ocean of land, my sleeper car served as a ship a vessel for me & each sip, as I opened forty wines by hand. Over the course of six days and four nights, the wine I sipped in each glass I tipped was recorded while seeing great sights.

Cheers, Allie
