Part a of stage 0 now complete. I have made it to London on the sleeper train from Plymouth, crossed the city by bike and am now pulling out of Liverpool Street.
The nights sleep on the train was not deep. I had all the slightly dizzy and headachy feelings I normally suffer when trying to sleep on a plane. I always thought it was pressurisation but maybe it is just motion and constant background droning noise. Good value though, £79 Plymouth to Lowestoft – sleeper to London with breakfast, 1st class to Norwich with free drink and biscuits and bikes reserved.
Met Paddington at the station on arrival. He didn’t have much to say. In fact he was a bit brassed off. (that will make more sense once I add a photo of the statue).
