An Impulsive Adventure

Solana Beach to Los Angeles Union Station via Amtrak's Surfliner; an escape date for one.

My little story will follow soon. But first, let this serve as an introduction.

In 2009, the romance of train travel was leveraged for a high-end commercial for Chanel No. 5 in Train de Nuit, directed by Jean Pierre Jeunet and starring Audrey Tautou. This sensual, exquisite piece of filmmaking took 3 weeks to shoot, both in an elaborate studio set, and on location in Istanbul.
