    This would be our second time taking an AC3 train, which is a tiny bit more run down than AC2, with the main difference being that they fit 3 beds into a space normally reserved for 2.

    " I met a traveller from an antique land

    Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone

    Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,

    ... Well small world eh!? We went walking for a bit longer and then Suban said "ok here you watch sunset yes?" It was 4pm so I said, ummmmm noooooo let's keep going, so at 5pm he said again "ok now?" So we succumbed but we definitely shouldn't have as we then twiddled our thumbs and fended off different advances from gypsy children trying to sell their wares in the form of bad dance moves and quakey voices.
