I'm flying to London early tomorrow for a couple of meetings.
This trip has become a regular feature of ministry life in the last few years. I always scour the internet seeking the best deal and times.
Sometimes the train is best especially if it is an afternoon meeting. I've occasionally managed to get a good deal on the Caledonian Sleeper, but invariably I don't sleep well. This is made all the more difficult when sharing a compartment with a possible serial killer. Of course my roomie is probably thinking the same of me.
Then there's the bus. I've never actually done this, despite it being the cheapest method of transport. It just seems too tiring and inconvenient, given that I need to be in full position of my faculties in the meetings I attend.
Then there is the plane, with its concomitant issues of carbon footprints, getting through security and general hanging around. Last time I flew from Luton on Easyjet , it took about an hour to get through security. Easyjet don't offer a late enough flight to get me back tomorrow night (and I don't want to overnight), so this time I'll be using my Frequent Flyer miles (though still paying the taxes) on BMI.
Teleportation is what we need........
