They Met By Coincidence In A Salt Mine

Today, another coincidence story I saw in the Daily Mail newspaper from Mike Matthews of South Wales.

"While studying A-levels at grammar school in Brighton I went on a school trip to Germany and Austria, led by our German tutor, Len Symes.

The trip took us to Munich, Innsbruck and the beautiful city of Salzburg.

One of the highlights of the trip was a train journey from Munich to Innsbruck, travelling through the foothills of the Alps on an old steam train that had open-air carriages at either end.

When we got to Salzberg, the school had arranged a visit to a salt mine, which involved a steep descent to a depth of 300 feet.

While at the bottom and looking at he rock formations Len, our tutor, felt a tap on his shoulder. When he turned around, he discovered he was looking at his next-door neighbour from Brighton!

Neither of them knew that the other was going on a trip, let alone to the same place.

Once back on the surface, they marked the coincidence with a stein full of Austrian beer. Unfortunately, we boys were not allowed to join in."
