Nothing, and I mean nothing, is overrated by liberal cosmopolitan Americans like riding on yurpeen trains.

we took the train a lot in england last year--including london-glasgow. the main reason to not do it this time is to get another full day in london out of a short trip.


my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

And really, after riding the "trains" here, why would not overrate the trains almost anywhere else.

 

Our train trip from London to Paris was great, just because seeing the speed of that damn thing on the overhead monitor forced me to take an extra xanax.

I'm late to the game here, but Skyscanner for international flights.

 

I bought my London to Edinburgh train ticket for 45 pounds, as an Advance ticket. If you have the luxury of buying a month out, I've gotten (Is gotten a word? it seems wrong, but also right) great deals.

When I bought my one ticket Tulsa to Pensacola I originally checked coach fares, then out of curiosity I decided to see how much for First Class on Delta.  $270.  I grabbed it and have not looked back nor questioned it.  Last time was $800.  My lucky day.  One way because I am driving a car back via New Orleans and Shreveport with a lunch in Paris, TX thrown in for good measure.  I had checked the fare 2 months ago and i was quoted $590.  I am going to enjoy my lunches.

For domestic (esp if you are flying at a non-business-y time) have also found domestic first can be cheaper than coach+extra leg room.
