I do enjoy traveling by train. This is perhaps a little odd because I commute to work by train so you might naturally assume that it would take the enjoyment out of rail journeys since those 8am services can be pretty miserable. If I need to travel across the country and there is a chance to get a reasonably priced first class ticket, I’ll go for it. I’m heading up to Scotland this week for some much needed rest and recuperation. Since the travel time is almost as long as a working day I think splashing out for extra leg room and complementary tea/coffee is entirely justifiable. I’ve no particular plans for once I get North of the border, but I have a good feeling that whatever I do will involve shopping then plenty of food and drink.
