... at 9.50pm and got ready for bed; Edd only just fitted in the bed and we giggled at his head touching the top and feet square on the bottom. We had just started dozing off when the train stopped; I'd gone to the bathroom and thought I'd locked the door, but they didn't really make any sense, so I wasn't completely sure. A conductor/guard invited himself into our room, looking for beds with 2 people behind him. We knew they didn't have tickets as they not only were on the hunt, ...

It turned out they are football fans too, so we got talking and watched Wednesday grind out another disappointing 0-0 draw. I then joined the Canadians for a beer which turned out to be a lot more!
