The Journey

This Passport Express was the train experience of a lifetime. The journey took members of the Passion Passport community across the country for a two-week immersive travel experience with Amtrak.

The Passport Express Route Map

The Details

The group will gather in Washington, DC on September 10th, when we’ll set off on a 14 day train journey across the country on the Capitol Limited, Empire Builder and Coast Starlight. We’ll be stopping for two nights in Chicago, Minneapolis, Glacier National Park, and Portland before arriving on September 24th in San Francisco. Throughout the trip, there will be workshops and seminars led by some of our most distinguished passengers. While we’re on the train each passenger will get a bunk in our private sleeping car, and our events will be held in a private observation car.
