    Final day in Huddersfield

    January 11, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    Checked out of our hotel right after breakfast. Have enjoyed the warm croissants with Nutella every day. I will however be glad to be home with familiar and healthier food. Received our train tickets from Richard P who, when he heard we were travelling by coach (bus) got on his phone app and reserved train tickets. Apparently tickets purchased on the app are cheaper than on the website. The best price we had seen for train tickets was £100 per person. He got £55 tickets.

    Another day of training for Linda and the rest. Our Spanish compatriots left at noon to catch their flight in Manchester so that allowed Linda and Hristo from Bulgaria and Artur from Poland more hands-on time. They will write a multiple-choice test to certify that they are capable to repair Paxman technology.

    All the while I have opportunity to knit and stay up to date with the company emails and messages from home.

    Had a tour of their workroom, probably only as big as our home’s main floor. They outsource certain parts and components and build the machines here.

    We took an Uber to Wakefield Westgate train station ad the express train back to London. Glad to be on the way home.
