A very early start today as we had a train to catch before 8am. The hotel made us up a picnic each as breakfast is only served from 8am. We thought that was very decent of them. We caught our first taxi as it was still dark, the wind was gusty, and the case-dragging walk to the station would have been uphill taking about 30 minutes.
