I have a train journey today, to go to Wembley. This will make the journey seem a lot faster.
On the few occasions when I take a train journey, I never take a book. Instead, I try to get a seat next to a window and enjoy our beautiful countryside or townscapes as they go by.
A few years ago, when I bought a well cared for Rover 620ti out of the depths of Cornwall, it cost me £39 for a one way train ticket. Fabulous journey from just about every aspect. Not least, most of the way a gorgeous young female student sat opposite and we enjoyed chatting.
Have often seen the I.K.B. bridge at Saltash. That was the first time I'd actually travelled over it. Passing through fine scenery for a lot of the journey, the line also travels very close to the sea for many miles. The wildlife visible from the train was of real interest to us too. Never realised there were now so many various Egret heron species in the former green and pleasant. We really should have more border controls with all these newcomer 'immigrants'.... nice to see them though ...
£39 well spent. It cost that much in petrol bringing the car back. It went well as it still does. The seller told me that the AirCon did not work but I pressed the switches anyway. It worked well! ....
I really did let the train take the strain that day and was all the better for it. Clear blue skies throughout that fabulous day helped too.
Cheltenham are in playoff action today too.
My one complaint about Glorious Gloucestershire is the lack of a Premiership Football. They do have one with that oval shaped ball though at Kingsholm.
