Title: More a summary than a travelogue - 7th October 2019
Post by: grahame on October 07, 2019, 09:46:01 pm
Five trains, two buses, a boat (or is it a ship) and a tram ... can't imagine why I'm tired after a day's travel ... especially as I find myself staying in a mega-hotel where (were we still in the hotel business) I could log 20 mistakes we should not make ... but then not pass on most of those to our team because they're so obvious and fundamental.   And only a little to praise and pass on so far - like a decent sized room, clean, and at about the right temperature.

The above goes to explain a very brief log tonight, even though I have a lot I could tell.  I will, however, tickle your fancy and ask you to remind me to tell you about the bloke who lives in St Albans, his wife who lives on Anglesey (they are still a couple!) and the Romanian Urban Planner.

Perhaps someone could help me by following up with all the locations  :D

MV Ulysses is  lurking behind the end of Dublin Port Co. Passenger Terminal 1, so presumably the bus is one of Mortons express transfer ones to Connolly (unless you lifted the picture of Ulysses off Street View - it's almost identical).

The first two buses are at the back of Holyhead ferry terminal, ready for the shorter-than-the-length-of-the-boat trip to the ferry, and the end of the Red LUAS line is at Saggart - next to Citywest and all than business stuff (what is a digital park anyway?).

I think all now identified ...
Melksham, Trowbridge, Bristol Temple Meads, Wolverhampton, Crewe, Holyhead, Dublin Port, on Moreton's bus, Dublin Connelly and Saggart.   All my own pictures ... any similarity to other pictures online not surprising as these are mass transit pictures and masses of people take the same pictures  ;D .
