This title sounds profound, almost book worthy, but it's really just a post about weird stuff that happened to me in transit between England and Spain :-)
1) THE EASY JET FLIGHT ATTENDANT ASKED IF WE COULD 'KIND OF' LISTEN TO THE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE 'NICE'
This is traditional English politeness gone mad with a modern twist of slackness, made me smile though ;-)
2) I WAS GIVEN 18€ OF COINS IN CHANGE BY THE UNDERGROUND TICKET MACHINE
Thanks, now, between deciphering Eng
lish and Spanish coins and delving through receipts and old train tickets, it will take me over half an hour to pay for anything ... my fault, I know...
3) I WAS ASKED IF I WANTED TRAVEL INSURANCE FOR A TWO HOUR BUS JOURNEY!
Sorry what?? How little faith can they have in their drivers, should i be worried?
4) BUS PLATFORM LOTTERY
It really is a complete guessing game which platform your bus will leave from, but its pretty much guaranteed it wont be the one indicated on the helpful screen
More important than all of this, Spain is smelling good to me. Spain smells good to me even when it smells quite bad actually... and i guess that's the point... like when you're in love, and even the wierd wiffs of your beloved make you smile ... It's good to be back :-)
