Since you can't choose the same action twice, Is traveling 2 spaces with the use of a travel ticket considered one action? The way it is explained seems like you travel twice but it is 2 separate actions.
Of course I've been up all night! Not because of caffeine, it was insomnia. I couldn't stop thinking about coffee.
The travel action lets you FIRST move one space, then move as many additional spaces as you want spending an appropriate ticket each time. This is clearly defined in the description of the travel action, which is one action regardless of how far you travel.
The point is that a Ticket isn't a move action, it's an extension of your current move action, which is why you have to move first, then use your Ticket - you can't use you Ticket for the first stage of your movement
