Won't be able to do it this year, or next year or for the 3 years after that for that matter but I WILL do it one year!

Although once you have got there, the fares are cheap. You can get a 7 day unlimited pass for about the same price as a 1 Day Peak 1-9 Travelcard.

Incredible! I narrowly missed an opportunity to hit the Paris Metro in August as I was near to there (well an over-priced Disneyland so take what you want out of that) but alas I couldn't get to Paris. Damn.

I went into Paris one day when I was at Disney last October and I spent a lot of time on the Metro. Was interesting :)

There are three new stations opening on the new Second Avenue Subway that are due to open by the end of December so might be worth waiting for them to open before doing an attempt?

Or be the last person to hold under the current amount. I'd wait though, as it might be reset, making it easier to get the record
