    So we are on our way to London.

    Taxi related crisis in that he couldn't open one of the car doors. Had to perch in the back squished against suitcase.

    Train related crisis: one cancelled, another delayed, change at Newport instead of Cardiff.

    At least we managed to grab a quick cuppa in the first class lounge with Mickey before being ushered off onto a connecting train! [ATTACH]12580.vB[/ATTACH]

    Further travel related updates later when we make further progress :-)

    Seems like there are always bumps in the road leading to a great vacation. Keep trekking.

    Hi all,

    We had to walk over to platform one. When we arrived, we was told to move to platform 4. Then boarded the train and just to be told that we need to get off(!)

    Thankfully we could get back on the same train so we are now going to London!

    Have now arrived in London. A slightly hair-raising taxi drive later (almost sandwiched between a bus and a van at 40mph) we are now on the Gatwick Express on the way to the hotel at the airport.
