The Journey

Post by The Orange One » 26 Jul 2013, 22:32

The aim of this game is to make an interesting journey. I'll start the thread by giving you a place, you have to post the next leg of the journey, then the next person posts the one after and so on. For example, if I was to start Milton Keynes, we might follow this by "Southern to Kensington Olympia", "27 bus to Hammersmith", "Piccadilly line to Heathrow Terminal 5" and then "British Airways flight to Singapore Changi".

Rules on transport allowed:

All public transport (including commercial flights and ferries) is allowed.
Walking/Cycling/other human-powered transport is allowed for distances between 0 and 2.5km.
Taxis may be used once every 10 posts, for distances up to 10km.

Starting at a place we usually finish at - Mornington Crescent!

So you've just invented Mornington Crescent?

No. I'm starting at Mornington Crescent just to be ironical. I want real journeys.
