the trains are still completely up the spout. last night and this morning were both close to an hour delays... which was nice.

in better news i have made the first move of my world tour planning. i went and booked the round the world ticket at trailfinders who were hugely knowledgable and helpful.

the initial plan is London -> Orlando -> New York -> Los Angeles -> Auckland -> Syndey -> Melbourne -> Hong Kong -> London over six weeks but things are still very flexible. i almost enjoy the planning part as the actual trip as it involves so much reading and anticipation.
