My bus was canceled. Was waiting for 40 minutes, and had to take a train instead, almost missed my flight.

Voyage : très bien ; par contre il est difficile depuis la gare de Waterloo de trouver le point de départ des bus ; en effet, il n'y a pas d'indications claires signalant le départ des bus de National Express
