You never know, Andy, we may have been shipmates or trainmates at some time in the distant past.
We caught the boat train from York to the TCQ.
I did the same journey last year to pick my car up from the ferry terminal and I had to be dropped off at York by the Memsahib, get off the train at Newcastle, catch the Metro all the way round to Wallsend and then get a taxi down to the ferries. How times have changed.
We usually went to Stavanger but my Mum had relatives in Odda & Tyssedal so trips up Hardanger Fjord were not unknown.
Always a bit of an adventure when the boat went clockwise to Stavanger via Bergen or when we were coming back via Haugesund and Bergen. Some coastal passage, eh!
Cheers
Kris
