How are you travelling?

I used to do voluntary work as a Tour Guide for European Festivals and I don't recall my bags ever being search when travelling via Ferry, Eurotunnel or Coach from France, they were only inspected when I went through an Airport as the foil lid of my instant noodles set the alarm off.

Air. While I'd love to drive down and loathe airport security with every fibre of my being, when Ryanair tickets can be had for between about £17-£35 quid each way but petrol and a ferry/Eurotunnel would cost well over £200 it's a bit of a no-brainer for me (I'm also pretty far south and learned when travelling in Canada years ago that I don't really want to be on a coach for any longer than about four hours in a 24 hour period).

To be fair, airport security haven't given me any crap for a while. But I do always see them giving other people crap unnecessarily and that's enough to sour me on the experience. As is standing in the inevetabley long and slow moving queue.

That's completely understandable. Thankfully I live approximately 30 minutes from Kings Cross, so I can hop on the Eurotunnel for about £60 return and that often includes unlimited train journeys in that country.

I know exactly what you mean. I've made the journey to Holland a few times via National Express and it's not something I'd want to do again anytime soon. At least on tour, the atmosphere was more comfortable and the coaches that we booked felt as if they were made for rockstars, whereas the National Express coaches felt like something we used on school trips.

What parts of Canada did you visit? My family are from Toronto.

Thankfully I've not had any problem with Airport Security, just received the odd joke about my piercings setting off the alarms or the odd comment about my 6" platforms. I always fly at unsociable hours so I've never dealt with a long and / or slow moving queue.

But no need to worry, I'm sure there won't be any uncomfortable situations with your return trip.

Not really into anime apparel and the likes but I had to buy this official Patlabor Shinohara Heavy Industries Cap. Not huge on headear (so see what I did there?) but sometimes you have a bad hair day, you know?

Ordered the last To love ru art book I'm missing, harem gold.

To be honest I'm not even a big fan of TLR, but the art is just godly..

(Also pre ordered another art book from a certain LN series with on going anime, classroom of elite, and the latest megumi nendoroid from saekano.. but I didn't pay them yet hence not exactly bought today)

Sorry for the delay in replying, I was in fact travelling and both wi-fi and time have been in short supply.

I travelled across Canada from Toronto to Vancouver too many moons ago to think about without depressing myself, but also sadly before I had a driving licence. Beautiful country, massive and diverse, relatively cheap and with very few and generally friendly people. Probably one of my happiest memories. Maybe once I have a degree I can think about revisiting/emigrating. Northern Ontario and BC were definately my favourite parts. Trees forever and little Twin Peaks-esque towns. I remember going to a cafe in a little town and they came round with a coffee pot and kept refilling my cup and it didn't cost anything. Though maybe Starbucks has taken over by now.

The queue for security heading out at Leeds-Bradford was horrid even at 6am, worse than it ever used to be at Stansted - but Ryanair stopped flying from there to the local airport I used in France so I can't go via that route any more. Though next time I might look at going via Dublin rather than having to repeat that experience again.

It probably will be okay but I suffer from a track record of uncomfortable or embarassing situations having a way of finding me, so knowing my luck some attractive young security officer will probably go through my porno comics in front of me...

CDJapan, I had some points that I got from previous purchases that I used towards it. The cap seems to be OOS right now but stock is being replenished in September I think.
