Tomorrow The Train is a travel memoir of an incredible journey to the world record on rail travel. Mona Tippins set out alone to break the Guinness World Record. Her journeys took her through thirty-three countries. The twenty-seven chapters of this book reveal some of the adventures she experienced along the way. She was robbed, beaten, and chased by drug addicts. More than once she was mistaken for a prostitute, a spy and a beggar. She traveled 79,841 unduplicated miles. Mona broke the record in February 1997, and was listed in the 1998 Guinness Book of World Records.

From the Author:

Travel for travel's sake is so different from traveling with a goal in mind. Writing about one's own travel experiences stirs the author's emotions and memories to the point he or she must close the file. That is quite the opposite of writer's block.  Writing this book was almost like reliving my adventures.

About the Author:

Mona Tippins was born in Princeton, Indiana, and raised in Washington, D.C. She and her husband Herb have two children and four grandchildren. Traveling has always been a favorite pastime for Mona, but her train journey to the world record remains tops in her travel memories. Her love of trains was inherited from her mother. Mona's mother worked for the railroad in Washington, D.C. during World War II. Her father worked laying track in California in the 1920s. Mona is the author of European Train Travel Tips.
