Today is Friday. I am back in the UK -and on the train again. This time heading north from London to Leeds on GNER.
On the positive side – it’s a nice fast journey up to Leeds – no hassle of flights, getting to and from the airport and all of the checkin hassle. It’s also a lot lot faster than driving (probably four hours each way – which would hurt). There is also free Wifi on the train (woo!) – which is actually useful (sync of mail and get some research complete).
On the negative side – the value is questionable. While less than flying – it still hurts to pay so much for a flexible ticket.
