Subject: Personal Request
I would like to beg your indulgence for some personal help. My daughter
is doing a semester abroad in Aberdeen. Over spring break she's going to
London with some friends, then taking a commercial tour to Italy and
returning to London. A friend is supposed to meet her there and they
will drive back to Scotland together.
But, of course, things happen. If the friend should fail her, what would
be the best way for her to get from Gatwick into London and thence to a
train to Scotland? She had a lot of trouble finding information and
stopped looking when she made this arrangement. I tried looking up
things on the web, but found myself generally stymied. (British Rail
wanted to sell me a foreigners' pass and tour packages and nothing else.)
Since a number of people on this list are Natives, and actually live in
the vicinity, could one or another write me off-line with information on
the most painless way for her to get from Gatwick to Aberdeen on her own
-- if necessary?
