Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
snigger. Well don't travel at school kid time is my best piece of advice. Looking back on my own adventures from when I boarded the 34c twixt billericay and Chelmsford back in ...whenever I pity any adult that had to endure it.

Remember, it was only 20 years ago that our dear esteemed Leaderene said that a man who was found himself travelling on a bus at the age of 26 could consider that his life was a failure. So buses in the UK are not really intended for anybody but the feckless and indolent. So if you're going to slum it, you really have to take it as you find it.

sorry, but we're a mid-atlantic country, we have the worst of both worlds.

Helen, I have a one school-kid myself! How do I avoid getting on crowded buses without getting him kicked out of school before he even enters year one? ;)
