As the nation's intercity passenger rail operator, Amtrak connects America in safer, greener and healthier ways . Traveling by rail contributes less per passenger mile to greenhouse gas emissions than either cars or airplanes. According to U.S. Department of Energy data, Amtrak is almost 14 percent more efficient than domestic airline travel and 31 percent more efficient than auto travel on a per-passenger-mile basis. Amtrak has a range of behind-the-scenes and front-line security measures in place to ensure passenger rail security.[more]

A world tour comes to an endhttp://aeu.amadeus.com/aeu/Templates/Blogs.aspx?id=4714&blogid=217

One of the sobering parts of travel is that you eventually have to go home. Airports can be lonely places after saying goodbye to dear friends and the cherished part of the world they live. I can remember taking off from Nice, in the South of France, and flying  over the Mediterranean, unable to look back at the famous coastline of the Cote d’Azur as the plane looped back for its journey to Paris. Some journeys change us, as we leave behind more than just cities and landmarks but friendships and memories.

I had been visiting a dear friend of mine who happens to be the most seasoned and adventurous traveler that I know. She’s currently on a six month trip around the world, traveling to the Americas, Polynesia, Australia and New Zealand, and finally, Asia.

We can teach you how to book that kind of itinerary in AeU, but we can’t teach you how to tap into the emotions of a traveler who seeks adventure and something greater than just another tour or commercial experience. [more]
