It seems that some explanation

It seems that some explanation of my route to Holland is required (it isn’t that exciting, so you can switch off now, if you like). I’m travelling to Holmes Chapel in Cheshire on Tuesday afternoon and staying over in a local Travelodge. It’s a five hour journey from Chichester, with train changes at Reading and Crewe. On Wednesday, I’ll be attending the Four Oaks horticultural trade show. I’ll leave there late afternoon, then travel by taxi (via the hotel to pick up my bags) to Winsford station to take a train to Runcorn, and then a bus to Liverpool John Lennon Airport, and then fly to Amsterdam Schiphol airport, where I’ll meet Mike who will have travelled in from Gatwick.
Now, if you’ve bothered to click on the links, you might wonder why I’m not taking advantage of the free shuttle bus between the trade show and Manchester airport. Simple – EasyJet will fly me from Liverpool to Amsterdam for £35. From Manchester, I have a choice of KLM (£285) or BA (£335). So a fairly easy choice to make, really.
