Holiday time -at last! All packed and on our way…
Catching the train for our summer break. This year we decided to take a holiday in the UK. I hope all those fierce nationalists, who voted for Brexit – are doing the same and supporting our turf. We shall have less of those inexpensive holidays in the sun, (tumbling pound anyone?) and we shall be paying more and staying in the UK. Well, I won’t be missing the ‘bargain’ flights.
Ive always loved train travel, more ecological and easier on the body. (you would not believe what flying does to our inside, it’s horrific!) First class train tickets are comparatively inexpensive. Either book far in advance, or very last minute.
We got on a ‘quiet’ coach and spread out. Do you realise that on trains we can actually stretch? Get up and walk about? There is even an ever changing view from the window! No need to seek entertainment by sinking on our screens, just look outside.) I usually pack some fresh fruit for longer train journeys, but there was no need. Healthy choices were plentiful and included in the price of the first class ticket.
This is a longer trip which means, there is complimentary hot food to look forward to. Yeyyy! Delicious! And constant offers of wine, tea, coffee and biscuits. All very comfortable and civilised.
As always, it’s nice to travel light. Consolidate my luggage into one easily manoeuvrable wheelie suitcase and a hand held travel handbag. Despite my *ahem*, rather extensive bag collection, the humble longchamp seems to win hands down for most travel needs. Easy and inexpensive.
