National Express coaches

I’m writing this from a National Express coach on the way back from Leeds, having spent the weekend visiting friends and family. On the whole – not a bad way to travel. Certainly the cost was a fraction of the equivalent journey by car (14 quid versus 70 in petrol costs alone!) – although it would have been lovely not to have had to pay another 11 quid just to get to and from London Victoria….
The coaches are surprisingly comfortable although would benefit from having an airline style drop down table attached to the back of the seat in front. Also a touch more air freshener for the benefit of those seats near the loo (guess where I’m sitting now?) – not too bad though.
