Lesson #84 – Engineering works is not limited to within London

Sounds like a very basic concept to everyone – but it took a trip to Sussex for me to find that out. London is a city with engineering works on tracks being carried out every weekend and there are proper notifications telling everyone where are the blocks and how they should avoid it.

However, this didnt happen on the southeastern trains to Sussex. Upon arrival at Ashford International, the little troop of 3 discovered to their dismay that they had to transfer to a rail replacement bus instead of to another train. As such, they had to embark on a bumpy ride – resulting in queasy stomachs and giddiness at the destination.

As such, mental preparations is needed during such trips and always have on hand some mints/sweets to alleviate the potential bus-lag.
