I?m flying out of London Gatwick to Cologne Germany. My UK friends tell me to avoid Heathrow at all costs at the moment, the security is a nightmare. We?ll see how Gatwick is.
The best way to get to the airport is the Gatwick Express from Victoria Station, so I caught a cab, I could have caught the underground but I don?t want to navigate the tube with a big wheelie bag and a sore foot.
The strangest thing about the experience is the deja vu of traversing Victoria Station. I arrived in London yesterday at London Euston station. I?m leaving at Victoria station. The shops are identical fast food chains and I?m almost sure they are laid out in the same order.
I?m drafting this on the train now. You can pay for the ticket on the train so getting on is very effortless. It was ?14.00 GBP one way, and the conductor is very helpful with alternatives. The Gatwick Express leaves every 15 minutes and the journey takes 30 minutes.
