Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

Still sorting through England/Ireland pictures...

Let's play a game!

Pick 2 out of 3:

A. Last minute booking
B. Cheap tickets
C. Shorter layovers/fewer changes

I chose A and B.
So it took me a grand total of 2 planes, 1 ferry, 5 buses, 3 trains, and countless tram rides just to get BACK from Dublin to Nice.

Layover boredom pulled me to the edge of crazy--I passed the time drawing pictures of ducks with teeth, playing the dot game against myself, and, ultimately, creating this masterpiece:

I am Sam.
Sam I am.
Do you like planes, trains, and trams?
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.
I do not like planes, trains, and trams.
Would you like them here or there?
I would not like them here or there.
I would not like them anywhere.
I do not like planes, trains, and trams.
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.
Would you ride them through the night?
I would not, could not through the night.
Would you book another flight?
I could not, would not book a flight.
Would you wait out in the rain?
Would you sleep while on a train?
I would not wait out in the rain.
I would not sleep while on a train.
I do not like planes, trains, and trams.
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.
You do not like them, so you say.
Try them, try them, and you may.
Try them and you may, I say.
Sam, if you will let me be,
I will try them, you will see.
I like planes, trains, and trams!
I do! I like them, Sam-I-am!
Now I can visit Liverpool.
And I can visit Istanbul.
And I'll go back to visit York.
And then I'll go to visit Cork.
And I can travel to Beijing.
And see the grave of Deng Xiaoping.
And while I'm there I'll see Shanghai.
Then take a plane down to Chiang Mai.
And I would take them here or there,
Why, I would take them ANYWHERE!
I do so like planes, trains, and trams.
Thank you,
Thank you,


There it is.
