Griff is jealous that Ida is going to Switzerland. He tells her he would hope to one day go on one of the free travel agents arrangements "where you are given passes and hotel accommodation but seem to spend a frightful lot."
He advises her on the best travel options, including some snarky advice about travelling through Paris on return, "take a piece of soap as well as your passport."
He thought of putting together his own travel agency based at Wilmslow "but heard an agency there would not be allowed by the all-powerful railway company."
He hopes he doesn't get stationed in Huddersfield (he does) and updates her on choir activity (there is none) and card score table (she's winning).
