My wife and I took a discount coach journey to Amsterdam at the same time as the London Olympics. We were going for a “quiet” getaway in an attempt to avoid the sporting hysteria that seemed to have gripped Britain at the time. The result was far from what we had envisioned. In fact, we never again took a coach trip.
A scheduled coach to Amsterdam
The price the lowest we could pay
Direct from London Victoria it went
In the late hours of the day
A youth group beside us also did board
On their agenda was not slumber
So rowdy was the adolescent horde
The decibels became to hard to number
The return leg – marked by long delay
For the youths did in Holland purchase
Various items – that UK laws – disobey
So we had to wait for customs to do the searches
