So I’m hopefully having a day trip to Bristol early next year, and assuming I want to be there from 11 until 4, my options are:
|Drive||Around 4 hours||Leave: 07.00
|Train||4 Hrs 40mins||Leave: 05.45
|Train 2||Overnight stay||Leave: 17.00 day before
|Fly||1hr 10 mins||Leave: 06.45
The timings column is the timing of the major transport leg, and the clock times are the times I physically exit/enter our house. The costs are guesses, including any extra bus fares, taxes, parking, ….
I know that the environmental damage that flying causes – but honestly it has almost every other criteria in it’s favour. I think even driving would work out more expensive if you factor in road-tax and wear and tear, and that’s before considering that I would be depriving the family of a car for the day.
.. I also love flying. 🙂
