Midweek Blues

We’d all do it, let’s not beat around the bush.

It’s no secret that the rail fares in Britain are without a doubt borderline extortionate. I remember having to go to Berwick for the day and ending up paying £25 for a return. Doesn’t sound like a lot, however 15-year-old Alex was incredibly cross.

And that was just to Berwick. So you can imagine the prices for getting to London. Well, one local bloke decided to cheat the system a bit, by getting a flight to Spain and flying back to London.

Joe Furness, 21, posted a picture to Instagram, with a caption, detailing the math behind his decision:

Pretty clever. Especially the bit that involves cocktails.

He told LadBible:

“It was pretty surreal, having just arrived from the North of England. There were hundreds of Spanish horse riders on the beach – I grabbed a Sex on the Beach cocktail from the bar and spend the rest of the time relaxing in the sun.”

You’re doing us all proud.

That’s it for this week!

See you next time.
