We're having some hassle organising our train tickets for the holiday in Europe.
Turns out that the tickets we wanted to buy -- £300 for 16 days 1st class travel through all the places we want to visit -- are only available for people who haven't lived in Europe or the United Kingdoms for 6 months. The tickets that WE are allowed to buy are some £200 more expensive ... and cattle-class. What, the British are so used to paying too much for trains that they're just going to take it?
Anyway, it means we have to figure out what we're going to do, and figure it out soon. We don't really want to travel separately, so we might look at buying each leg of the journey separately. Dee's going into STA Travel to get their advice today.
