218/365 Personable


Meet Martin.  He was our bus driver for the two weeks that we were on tour in England.  Not only was he an amazing bus driver, he is an all-around good guy.  He was always cheerful and patient.  He also went way beyond the call of duty - retrieving items that people had left in previous places, using his personal time to scout out eating spots for us when we had tight schedules and risking a ticket to drop us off in a place that was off-limits to buses because traffic had been terrible in transit that we were running very late for a performance.  We could not have asked for a better person to be with us on our journey.

On our last evening in London, six of us took Martin out for dinner and a beer to express our gratitude for all that he had done for us.  Martin began as our bus driver and became our friend.
