Thursday was a big day for traveling and sparing no expense for our traveling comfort. We took an upgraded coach on the Eurotrain back to London. Bigger seats, no screaming children and a two-course breakfast. Then we cabbed it from St Pancras to Heathrow. My advice for other travellers? Cab it between those two if there are 2 in your group. Taking trains will cost you just about as much or take twice as long and just be generally annoying.
Once at the Virgin check-in counter we decided to keep the theme and upgrade to Premium Economy. This is like first class for most domestic flights. Big seats, plenty of free food and wine and of course the great Virgin airline customer service. That’s the way to do it.
Today, Friday, I’m making the last leg home on the cheap. The vacation is truly over.
