We went on this vacation 20 years ago. The hand written details of my observations of this trip were misplaced all these years. I recently found it again and am posting it since it is a trip down the memory lane. Among other details, it is interesting to note the price of entry tickets and cab and bus fares 20 years ago.
Here in the USA, the vacation for schools starts by the end of May or by the 15th of June. Therefore, most plan their vacation in summer between June and August which is the best season for the travel. We decided to travel to Los Angles by AMTRAK train; it was novel idea for all of us.
