I was young and foolish!
I've been to Greece too, through the former Yogislavia! Yugoslavia even...Austria, Germany, Italy on a ramshackle coach...
My favourite place is Lourdes in Toulouse!

Well, because you've done a bit of travelling through Europe, you obviously aren't averse to getting out and about, so why do you say you're timid about it?

It's enough to flummox the bravest! Mind you, to be fair, there're signs, and staff around to help.

Well even tourists manage, T. I think it's a case of going up to the ticket office, not a machine, and just telling them where you want to go. They'll tell you WHERE to go, and how much it is.

I don't imagine it's very pleasant, but my father did it for a good while.

Nor me, but he took an ordinary train to London, and then a tube to where he worked.
