I had a Car Front Sunshade made in Spain, which had printed in bold:
"Do NOT DRIVE with this shade on the windshield"

I think that's the day we arrive in Australia. 10th anniversary this year. Second possible England trip derailment for me, but this time for a good reason.

Best wishes to you guys. Have fun! :beer:

Ooooh. I can get return airfares for $1,635 (including taxes). Damn that's tempting...

mr_B
11-05-2009, 14:43:28
what's that in real money?

like euros

Greg W
11-05-2009, 14:46:00
ANFI. In American dollars, it's about... Hmm... $1,200, give or take. Haven't looked at the rate recently...

Greg W
11-05-2009, 14:48:50
Ok, Euro exchange rate is .55 or so. So roughly 850 euros...

Greg W
11-05-2009, 15:08:56
Crap. I forgot about all that wine I owe Tizzy. :eek: :cry:

Funko
11-05-2009, 15:09:38
That's about the same amount as the plane ticket?

Greg W
11-05-2009, 15:13:25
Dunno. It's a distinct possibility. The airfare is affordable. It's just the other incidentals like accommodation, sightseeing, car hire, the fact I'd want to get over to Ireland this time (so added flights/boat trip)...

Not to mention the danged wine. :cry:

Marrying Funko -- a brilliantly brilliant way to get rid of mr. B!

Funko
04-06-2009, 15:37:44
Isn't the idea to marry any old idiot to attract Mr_B?

Lurker
04-06-2009, 15:47:44
Why would anyone want to do that? Plus Tizzy has ingeniously set the stage to cease contact with him.

There is talk of my entire family going to Scotland to visit my dad's relatives in August. If that happens then I should be able to swing down to Reading for the reception.

Oerdin
07-06-2009, 20:05:02
The flights seem pretty reasonably priced. US Airways has LAX-LON for $560 then we'd have to get connecting flights to Scotland (to visit my dad's family) then back to LON when we're done. Does anyone know the cheapest airline for travel between London and Scotland (specifically we're going to New Kilmarnock though I'm sure my cousins/aunts/uncles & what not would pick us up any where).

mr_B
08-06-2009, 08:34:59
take the train

Tizzy
11-06-2009, 08:59:08
Which airport will you arrive at from LAX? I'm guessing Heathrow or Gatwick?
In which case for Kilmarnock you're best going to Glasgow International, British Airways or British Midland (BMI) both fly that route and are pretty similar in price.

There are other options but they involve trekking across London to get to a different airport.

Funko
11-06-2009, 10:26:07
Don't judge Scotland by Kilmarnock, it's a dump.

What is New Kilmarnock anyway?

MDA
11-06-2009, 11:44:02
take the train


secondered

we landed at Manchester and worked our way up by train, but that was many many years ago

Oerdin

Apparently it is a small village just off of Kilmarnock. Tizzy, US Airways flies into Heathrow.

Oerdin

Any estimation of how long a train trip takes? Are the trains as bad as Amtrak or are they better?

Tizzy
11-06-2009, 13:14:08
Apparently it is a small village just off of Kilmarnock. Tizzy, US Airways flies into Heathrow.

I think you might mean New Cumnock. Never heard of New Kilmarnock.

Train would be about 10 hours all in (rough estimate). You'd have to get into London from Heathrow then tube to Euston. Then you could get train to Carlisle and change to Kilmarnock, or train to Glasgow and change.

I'd just fly from Heathrow if it was me.

MDA
11-06-2009, 13:30:52
I've never been on any other train. Loved it. I couldn't estimate the trip time (was the late 1990's, I just don't remember) - we used the train the whole time, up and down the east coast to Inverness and back. There was a lot of complaining because the trains had gone private, but I don't remember any actual problems. I can remember security being more strict than I expected, maybe due to problems in Ireland? no leaving anything in public lockers at the stations, common sense stuff that yankee tourists wouldn't think of pre-9/11 - but that's about it.

My wife thinks Acela is awesome, she's got more train experience than me. No idea how that compares to regular amtrak. My 10+ year old train experience is probably no longer relevant. I'll bet there are some posters that live over there with more recent trips.

techietone
13-06-2009, 02:16:35
i second the fly down because not only the time and the hassle of getting across london but the flight is actually cheaper than the Train !!!!!

Provost Harrison
13-06-2009, 05:50:32
If I were going from London to Inverness, I'd fly it...any of my friends who have come down here from Scotland fly it. Mainly because it is a lot cheaper than the train, which seems ridiculous!

techietone
13-06-2009, 16:27:20
yep totally mental isn't it

and we not talking a little cheaper, couple of years back we was going to glasgow for new year and we book quite a bit in advance we got the flights for 100 for two adults and one child

train was going to be 270 !!! so we are not talking a small saving here

Funko
15-06-2009, 08:25:27
It's cheaper and quicker to fly, but if you want to see more of the country the train can be good.

Funko

Our trains are better than they were 10 years ago, but vastly more expensive.

right i have worked out how to get Greg over for it. he can hide in our baggage when we come back from brisbane thats only like 4 days before your wedding, err might have to swim home thou but its ok its mostly down hill on the way home

Funko
15-06-2009, 09:05:39
And Brisbane is really close to Sydney right?

techietone
