The £125 train ticket

We went to London yesterday, but no, we didn’t pay £125. This is a ticket I found discarded by a previous passenger on the train. Instead of forking out £125, we instead chose a ‘Saver Return’ ticket, costing a much more reasonable £36.50 with a railcard. It’s a bit more than the £1 coach tickets we normally book well in advance, but then the train does take two hours less, is a lot more comfortable, and (most importantly) you can get free tea and coffee from the bar.

Heading off on a whim, we were able to escape to the capital last night for fine dining, fine drinking and fine discussions with certain close friends.

So much has happened in the last week, and yet there is so little to say. I (and we) are well and managing with the changes that the last seven days have thrown at us. Sorry for not telling you more, but that really is all I want to say right now.

    That particular ticket was purchased with a travel warrant (hence the ‘W’ after the price), which always makes things considerably cheaper. It’s always nice when someone else pays your rail fares!
