Arrive Sept 5, flying away Sept 14

If anyone wants to meet a fuckwit, his wife tells him he's free most evenings except Saturday, when he's going to dinner with one of her old Strathclyde friends.

Would be great. Don't know if it's possible due to baby... I don't suppose your evenings will be taking you to Reading will they?

We're staying at a Radisson in the Kensington area, it doesn't seem far by US standards (60 km). Is there a way for us to get there in the evening without a car? I don't know the public transport schedules.

jj it is actually very easy. You can get a train from Paddington to Reading, takes 25 minutes and they go about every 10/15 minutes.

You can go from High Street Kensington Tube station to Paddington, it is 3 stops I think.

It would have to be on the 6th, 7th or 8th because we're away after that.

Even I managed the London-Reading train. Though the bus from the airport was better thanks to the internet.

Trains are easy, even a gov. employee can manage!

Both Wednesday and Thursday are good, flexible days. We don't have any "scheduled" visits that could hold us up then. I think we're wandering Greenwich on Wednesday and London the next.

We're doing tubes and trains almost the entire trip (think there will be a couple tour buses), so I'll have it all figured out about the time we go home. My wife knows the schedule better, shes a planner-er.

We might have to bring winterclothes, or at least a coat. Looks like it's going to be wet.

No, it would appear I am in town the weekend after you leave *phew* ;)

You could always come to Manchester :cute:

Ok brilliant! Thursday might be better, I'll check with Tizzy tonight and let you know.

yes, you need winter clothes. It's chilly right now.

It's 15 little o C at the moment. I am guessing MDA's winter clothes are for more extreme weather than that?

A wee bit, 15C is lovely!

4-5 C with rain and wind is chilly! Winter clothes are for zero and minus ;)

We fly in the same day... except I'm not leaving.

I wish there was some way to meet. Since I'm not familiar with that country at all, I'm not sure how to pull it off yet.
