About Me

My photo
I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.

Step 11: Train times and cab firms for going to Amaravati on Sunday

Sunday 16th train times to BERKHAMSTED from Euston
12.09 gets there at 12.46
12.39 gets there at 1.12

Sunday talk starts at 2 (free). Sometimes gets pretty busy and its nicer to try and get a seat nearer the front.
Day return cost pretty much the same as a single I think
I think the train fare costs less if you buy it before you get on the train. (I'm not so sure as I hardly get trains)

Postcode for Berkamstead Station is HP4 2JU
Cab companies very near Berkhamstead Station are... (its better to book one before you get to berkhamstead in case you have to wait. Also you can agree a fare beforehand).

By the way, Its considered 'bad form' to go to the monastery all dolled up to the nines. Short skirts, low cut tops or very clingy clothing, or loads of slap. Its not fair when you are around people who have chosen a celibate lifestyle!
