Train from HELL

Breakfast in Northumbria

We left Boston at 10:40 PM on 5 August on a jamm packed BA flight. Arrived Heathrow a little after 10 AM and, then, caught the express train to Kings Cross station, where we boarded a train to Newcastle.

The train ride to Newcastle was the train ride from Hell. It was supposed to take a little over 3 hours to reach Newcastle. It ended up taking 9 hours. Needless to say we were exhausted by the time we reached our destination.

We were headed to Newcastle to visit our friends, Jane and Liam McManus, whom we had met in Saint Lucia. We arrived in Newcastle around 11 PM, and Jane and Liam were there to greet us. After the long train ride, seeing them at the station was the perfect start to a wonderful week exploring with them.
