UK Trip Day 11: July 7, 2003

July 07, 2003 @ 10:23 By: gordon Category: Travelling, UK Trip 2003

Today, I travelled from London to Bristol on the 1445 train out of London Paddington operated
by First Great Western. (I had hoped to be on a slightly earlier train, but there was a
broken down train at Victoria Station. It delayed the trains from Wandsworth Common by about
twenty minutes or so.)

Making my way from Victoria Station to Paddington by bus, I arrived at the cavernous station,
found a ticket agent and had my railpass validated. I then boarded the first class coach
where I’m typing this entry from.

I’m going to spend a day or two in Bristol and then head up to Scotland for most of the rest
of the week. This is going to be the most expensive part of the trip, not because of the
train tickets, but because of the hotel accommodations. I could probably have found a hotel
upon arrival at Bristol Temple Meads station, but I decided to book something over the Internet.
So, I’m going to be staying at the Bistol Thistle.

Right now, I’m at Bath Spa.

More to follow…
