hi guys i need some advice from people with this kind of experience. Basically me and my gf have been goin out for 5 months and shes definatly going to go to a different uni then me. I will most probably be 1 hour and a half or max 2 hours away from her. I really really love her and want to stay with her and i don't know what to do. What do i do? What do i tell her? She seems to be fine with it so far as shes excited about making new friends but im really really sad and im trying to hide it. The topic of "us" is going to come up soon so what do i tell her?
thanks for all replies
As Egham is about 45 minutes by train from central London and you won't be coming into the same station that you'll need to leave from to get to Egham, thus having to travel across London, it actually makes quite a difference. People are geographically confused by Holloway because it's university of London but it's in Surrey, not London. I had three years there while my boyfriend lived in various places in London and it used to take me at least an hour to get to him.
As for the railcard, anyone under 25 can buy one, it's not something you're entitled to. It costs £20 but you make that money back in one trip, so it's definitely a worthwhile investment
No there won't be a train direct, my guess is that the train will get into (I think) Euston from Birmingham, and then you would have to get an underground train to (I think) Waterloo/Victoria
railcard is now 24pounds... but as ygraine said its definately worth it!
