    This could generate a new line of Tshirts that say " The bitch didn't fall off and she bought me this." ;)

    On London's Tube have to agree with you, while working 3 weeks in my then companies London office Jan / Feb '02 found the Tube fantastic to get around on. Travelling from my Hotel in Islington to our Docklands office each day was like Teleporting with a train pulling up to whisk you away as you stepped off each escalator. :cool:

    The only fly in the ointment being a shock 5pm train drivers strike and after alighting the still running DLR forced me to trek 1 and 1/2 hrs by foot across Londons CBD in that nights cold drizzle with only a cartoon like tourist map guiding me from land mark to land mark, still it was an experience and being a new one found I was in much better spirits than most Londoners walking around and felt deserving of the deep fried Camembert with cranberry sauce I'd ordered for dinner that night. :smile:

    Switzerland. Although what actually constitutes the "densest railway network in the world" is a subject of much debate Switzerland is right there at the top, if not #1.

    It also has one of the the best on-time records in the world, second only to Japan I think.

    I've never done Schweiz, umm, Suisse, by rail. She Who Must Be Obeyed assures me that it's excellent. Christmas in the Alps!
