On my way to India I was fortunate to have a long layover at Heathrow. The Heathrow Express took me right to Paddington Station, from which I walked to Westminster and thereabouts. All in all about five hours before I had to return to the airport — even time for a pint (not pictured).
Earlier this month, I took the Greyhound Express from Nashville to Atlanta for a conference. I wanted to save costs wherever possible, so a rental car was out — over a week, even the cheapest option gets really expensive. Also, booking early on Greyhound gave quite a discount — it was a whopping $15 for a round trip ticket. 20x cheaper than flying, and free baggage was included.
I took a taxi from the house to the Nashville Greyhound station (Eryn was already out of town on another trip). Surprisingly high-tech for Nashville, these little TaxiMagic appliances are quite handy when you want to avoid cash in taxis. Atlanta taxis could take a lesson!
I arrived at the bus station a full hour early, which gave plenty of time to check out the clean-but-cramped space. Lines everywhere, snaking around the different “express” areas. A tip — you stay with your baggage the whole time. After I had gotten my bag tagged, I thought they would take it to the bus, akin to commercial air travel. But no — you stay as close (or as far) from your bag as you desire, carrying it out to the bus when the time comes to board.
