What is the monument in USA that you first learned of while you were growing up? Even before I knew of Liberty Statue, the Gateway Arch of Mississippi River is my very first picture of America. I never dreamt of coming here, but guess what, I have been there. Thanks to Amtrak. We arrived there around lunch time and spent the afternoon around the …
... heading west and we would get there. When we left Fiona's parents castle we went to a tavern right outside the castle and went inside to freshen up. Inside were a few of Lord Farquaad knights and they were there looking for us! Fiona and Donkey waited outside while Bilbo went in wearing the ring, which transformed him into a knight. Bilbo asked the other knights where to ...
... away. They needed Bilbo because he had a special ring that allowed him to transform into different people and they were hoping to have him transform into Lord Farquaad and find out where Shrek was. Bilbo declined because he was scared that he might get hurt but also thought of his smelly, mean neighbor that always yelled at him. So ...
I left Flagstaff after a mere 25 hours, the departing train was a bit late due to a collision with an elk, and now I'm on my way to St. Louis. This leg was particularly eventful because my train had about a dozen Amish making their way back home from three weeks in Tijuana... And no it wasn't for an epic stag party. Apparently Amish sometimes travel to Mexico for medical care and they were on their way back home to New York. Only three more days of train travel for them.
Please read this passage from Leo Tolstoy's classic, The Kingdom of God Is Within You, for our final lesson.
It is asserted that, in order that the unstable order of things,established in one corner of the world for a few men, may not be destroyed, you ought to commit acts of violence which destroy the eternal and immutable order established by God and by reason. Can that possibly be?
And therefore you cannot but reflect on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn & Suites St. Louis at Forest Park Saint Louis
An Upscale Hampton
I am a seasoned business traveler and stay at upscale hotels. I was walked to this hotel (Hampton Inn and Suites) since the hotel I booked at was over sold. I was not happy walking into the hotel and probably was unreasonable. The Front desk staff was very patient and helpful. The hotel manager brought my luggage to the room. I am very impressed with the service at the hotel. I had never stayed at a Hampton but will stay at this one any time I come to St Louis.
On my recent business trip to St. Louis, I stayed at this hotel. I am a frequent business traveler and see a variety of hotels. I can say with all honesty that this hotel is extremely well managed and exceeds most hotels in its class.
Would definitely stay again
We stayed at the Hampton on a recent trip to St. Louis. I have found Hampton Inns to be one of the most reliable chains. Rooms were on the smaller size but with 2 queen beds, very nicely decorated, larger bathrooms with all amenities. The breakfast area was large and the quality and selection of food quite good. This location is not near enough anything to walk but is across the freeway from Forest Park. There is a sport-bar type restaurant on the property (although we didn't eat there). Nothing was too far (5 minutes to Washington University, the Hill (Italian section of town), 10 minutes to down town). They even prepared bag breakfasts for people who didn't have time for sitdown breakfast.
Would definitely stay again.
This hotel was easy to find and convenient to main attractions in St Louis. Only minutes from the zoo! We requested 2 queens but all they had was a King for me, my hubby, and 4 year old. Room was nice and clean. I like the contemporary decor. We went to the free breakfast late Sunday morning and almost all of the food was gone! Coffee and juice were completely gone. There was one woman working the breakfast and she was doing all she could to keep up. By the time we were done eating, she had gotten everything back to normal. I would suggest getting to breakfast early! The food was tasty and there is a big selection. We didn't go swimming but pool looked nice. Parking is kind of a pain. If you don't park up front you have to go down some stairs to a lower parking lot. But, parking is free and you don't have to pay someone money to park your car! We already reserved this same hotel for my parent's 40th wedding anniversary. We would stay there again!
Would tell friends
This brand new Hampton is in a great location. The rooms are bearutifully decorated with todays "hot" colors....blues and browns. The bathrooms were also very stylish and functional. The free breakfast was great and helped us save money. It was not just limited to a few sweet rolls and juice, but offered a different hot dish each day. We did not feel that we had to rush to the breakfast for fear of supplies running out early. I would have not problem telling friends to stay here or staying here again myself.
We arrived late in St. Louis, so we didn't have time to use the pool, but everything else was exceptional. The room was VERY CLEAN, quiet and nice (NEW). I agree with another reviewer, colors are boring, mostly grey, black and beige..... But the beds were extremely comfortable. Air conditioning was nice and didn't seem loud to us. The curtains were nice and thick (parking lot is well lit). We stayed in room 608 and our view was away from the highway (we requested this) and looked out over the parking lot. Rooms were quiet. I heard a door close one time. We may have been the first to stay in the room as there were no lightbulbs in any of the 4 lamps. They quickly gave us bulbs and that cleared up that problem.
This is the closest and most convenient hotel to the zoo, very easy to find and navigate to, but it has to be the most boring looking hotel I have ever stayed in. The furnishings are very sparse (modern?) and in varying shades of boring beige. The beds were supposed to be the new comfort beds, and I love the idea that everything you touch is laundered (duvet cover as well as the sheets), but the bed was kind of lumpy and the pillows weren't much better.
This property is in a wonderful location and is beautifully furnished. We experienced a number of problems and I attribute most of them to the property's newness and the inexperience of the staff.
Nice Hotel - Great Location
Beautiful and brand new just a few minutes from the Zoo and the Science Center. Great location for visiting Forest Park. Breakfast was good, & our room was very nice. There was some concern about highway noise, but we didn't notice and had no trouble sleeping. I would stay there again!
Very Good Location & Brand New!
This is a brand new hotel and the rooms are modern and comfortable. We knew we were the first to stay in our room because they still had not installed all the light bulbs! The room featured a counter-height bathroom sink, which makes it a bit difficult to reach for shorter people. The location is great--minutes from Forest Park's attractions and only a short ride to downtown. We appreciated that parking was free and thought that the room was a good value for the quality and location. Our only complaint is that the indoor pool is so tiny that only a few families at a time can be in it comfortably--we decided not to fight the crowd.
