I console myself with the thought that a difficult, and disaster-strewn journey to my holiday often leads to an exciting holiday; it gets the adrenalin pumping, gets the blood up. Even if you arrive angry and frustrated, that is a strong powerful emotion, and you can carry that into your arrival and first night, and it fuels you to such excitement that a comfortable easy journey in your comfort zone does not. This could be a great thing for my holiday. The £20 Megabus also saves me the £15 taxi from Midi. Guarantees I don’t get to 5th Avenue too early. Means I can do everything in one go.
