Four electric trains, three Underground trains, two trams, and two buses. Oh, and Two Creatives Go Mad in The Garden of England.
In less than a year, I have broken a few travel related ducks in my time. Last September I took my first return flight on my own (from Manchester Airport to Belfast City Airport). In the last week, I have travelled on the London Underground on my own – for the first time ever and loved it. I have tripled the number of London mainline stations on my list (my first one was Waterloo back in 1987). I even did the full length of the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch line.
