Joris, sorry to be late in answering... where are you flying into? A few fairly priced flights into the various London airports & a 3 hour train ride from Kings Cross to Scarborough for about GBP46 return. Still not sure I'll make it though as there are a couple courses I'd like to take at the LSOC in July ;) :) Oooh ooohhh and I understand Il Divo will be performing near London in mid-July 8) *drool* :oops:
This week, I'm mainly recovering :DAll I've got is my Aerobie AeroPress | 70's Aurora/Brugnetti HX Spring Lever | Mazzer Mini E & SJ (on loan) | Hottop | Nestor Martin (Toto) Gas Roaster | Eva Solo | Moka Pots

Ha Beany, I'm flying from Schiphol into Leeds on sat the 24th around 10:00hrs, returnflight on wed the 28th at around 18:00hrs. Thought it would be nice to add a couple of days to do some sightseeing around Scarborough (there should be the ruins of a castle there :)), maybe even a bit of surfing if I can rent some gear.

I'll fly with Jet.com and the price is around 120Eur (2 way flight, incl tax etc). A flight into london combined with the GBP46 for train would be definitly more expensive, unless you're talking GBP46 for flight and train combined... in that case I'll be paying more. But the flight is booked so it doesn't really matter anymore ;)
