    Some Questions

    Shop Now
    Ok so I posted these questions on the UK/ROI group page but haven't had any response so thought I'd try my luck here. Also have managed to get my internet connection working on the laptop (living on a farm temporarily right now) so thought I'd take advantage of it!

    Anyway first up any raw milk drinkers out there? If so have you ever ordered online from Hook and Son? I found their website as was curious to try.

    Also train tickets to London... are they always expensive? Wanted to go this weekend but they were super expensive just for a day trip!

    All depends which time of day you want to travel, and which day too for that matter. But, generally, train prices in the UK are absolutely horrendous. Have you considered going by bus?

    Oh dear! That's not good to hear! I thought travel in Europe was supposed to be cheap :|

    Train takes 1.5 hours but bus 2+ hours from what I've been told! Don't know if I want to sit on a bus for that long. Hmmm takes the fun out of a spontaneous trip if you have to book in advance!

    Haha, well I would ALWAYS advise booking tickets in advance as 'on the day' is so much more expensive. I agree, though - so much more fun waking up and deciding to go some place to visit on the spur of the moment. Perhaps one day I'll win the lotto and wont have to worry about these things!

    A word on going on the bus. National Express buses are not so bad. They are not luxury obviously but it's about the same as 2nd class on the train.

    You can get a single ticket to London for 12 assuming you leave early in the morning at 07:10, journey takes 3h40m. A return ticket is usually double or just under the price of a single.

    I studied in UK for a year, so I can only offer an immigrant's view, but two things I'd like to say:

    * Going to London I'd opt for a train booked well in advance and away from busy times like CavemanJoe said. Buses are often late, especially the local ones. My biggest delay was a 2 h 15 min trip stretching to 3.5 h because the driver got into an argument with a mouthy guy and refused to drive on before the cops came to resolve the issue. After that I avoided local buses as best I could. Btw if you take a bus, make sure you have exact change, because the drivers (again local buses) typically didn't have money to give back from even a small bill.

    * I highly recommend Aunt Bessie's Mashed Carrot & Swede (frozen) and Iceland's Swede and Carrot Mash. So delicious and the only ingredients are carrot, swede, butter, salt and pepper. Unlike Asda's and Tesco's own mashes, neither contains potato. I miss them so much. They also made it easier to eat with "normal" people, because mash is an easy replacement for all things potato that the others chose on their plates.

    UK bus drivers are a simple breed and don't understand the concept of paper money, even if a ticket is 4.50 give them a fiver and they go all stange like you are looking at their pint funny, or trying to spill their bird.
    You know all those pictures of Adam and Eve where they have belly button? Think about it..................... take as long as you need........................
