That's what Ron read - and he was hooked. Back on the bus we got for the endless 20 miles (please tell me we won't do that again!) and then on another bus - only 30 more minutes.

Some days, the public transport system is not all that user=friendly. Luckily, this is the exception, rather than the rule. Today, to move to Wales, we were scheduled to take 3 trains and a bus.
