so i ran into this website today for Busabout.... seems quite popular for getting around europe.

Has anyone used it on here? If so, is it any good. I took a look around and didn't look like my cup of tea, but then again what do i know.

any info, please share.

cheers,
ed

yo ed...

Im using busabout for bits and pieces of my travels over the next 3 months. It just seems convenient at the time as i booked 8 days worth of travel, which i plan to use just over the longer stretches of my trip.

Busabout have accomodation lined up which u can use after a days travel (which you have to pay for, but its not expensive) so i just think of it as a few no brainer dayz that i can slip into the next 3 months of very crazy travelling. The guides on the bus will also tell you stuff as you cruising, and you'll meet a shit load of new friends, some of which may have same plans as you, so you could hook up and travel a bit.

I can see it wouldnt suit everyone, but im willing to give it a go...

...oh, and its not like a contiki, where your on the bus with the same group of people for the entire trip. You just jump on/jump off at any of the pickup points when you like.

Just fire any questions at me that you have, ive studied busabout for the past 3 months.
