A RETIRED couple spent three days on a coach because that is their twisted idea of fun.
75-year-old Donna Sheridan described the trip around the Lake District in glowing terms despite it mostly consisting of sitting on a coach.
Sheridan said: “We met another couple called Ron and Pauline. He’s deaf in one ear and she kept talking about her irritable bowel syndrome. We’re friends now.
“We went to a hat museum. You wouldn’t believe how much effort goes into making a hat!”
Her husband Peter said: “We had a very good ploughman’s at a pub. Nearly as good as in the pub near our house that you can walk to.
“That night we stayed in a hotel and they had a Michael Buble tribute singer. We had a few drinks so the next day we were on a coach for 18 hours with hangovers.
“I still enjoyed the scenery though.”
His daughter Donna said: “I would genuinely rather have an operation on my eyeballs than go on a coach for three days.
“All I can conclude is that when people of a certain age get on a coach everything turns into a magical mystery tour. Maybe they do actually put LSD in the air conditioning.”
