Review of our stay in St. Pancras train station in London

Posted by Sean Blanda on Oct 8, 2008 in Experiences |

It was like home.  Except colder.  And smellier.

It was like home. Except colder. And smellier.

Well the long wait is over, we made it out of St. Pancras in London. If you didn’t follow, we were stuck after the Belgian socialists workers decided to go on strike for a mere one day. This taught a few things about ourselves and the Eurail system, and that all will be discussed in a future episode. Anyone who has ever sat in a waiting room knows the mental process you go through. First you try to entertain yourself, then you are resigned to rest and wait it out, but eventually you just want to get on with your life.

That cycle repeated itself several times over among the three of us. Luckily for us we had a very understanding staff at the champagne bar that allowed us to milk the power outlets and free Wi-Fi with out so much as asking what we were up to. Actually, come to think of it, we witnessed two shift changes, so most of the staff probably had know idea who we were and just assumed someone else would take care of it.

While this is no means a comprehensive list, here are thing we did (or considered doing) to pass the time:

  • Playing Cards
  • Wrote postcards to friends and family
  • Built a luggage fort with an American flag on top thus “annexing” the train station for the U.S.A.
  • Watched some movies we had on our laptop
  • People watched
  • Enjoyed the culture of the country we were in. In this case we had our first spot of EnglishTea.
  • Talked to several suprisingly friendly security guards.
