Weather: warm and sunny
Interesting encounters: not a lot
There was an air of anticipation as we left the house this afternoon. This will be the longest time I've ever been away from home.
Will I get homesick?
The journey went smoothly, everything was on time. There were no incidents. Even Paul Thoreau would have struggled for ammunition.
A tram from Timperley.
A train from Navigation Road.
A Pendolino train to London Euston.
London Underground Victoria Line to Seven Sisters.
Anglia Regional train to Elsenham.
Finally, a walk to our B&B - Stansted Lodge, aka Aspens.
So you can guess where we head for tomorrow!
Had I realised earlier, the journey to Hendaye may have been better planned to take place entirely by train. I suspect it would be cheaper than the grand total of £220 (for the two of us) that we've paid to travel by train and plane. However, the B&B is very pleasant and we should get a better night's sleep than on a couchette.
Sent from our GR10 trip - see here for our itinerary - will day 2 be more exciting?
