hi,

am heading to europe for between 2-3 months .. as to where plans are up in the air at present.

can anyone give me an opinion of "busabout".

as i understand it you can hop on or off as you see fit .. and have a hostel to stay in that night if you so choose ?

any advice would be great.

cheers
drew

you can hop off when you want but you can only get on at certain times chech the schedule you will have a orange day and a white day if you stop at a city that is orange you can not get back on till the next orange day unless it is an overnight stop then youcan get on the next morning. I decided againset the busabout because I don';t want to spend a majority of my trip on the bus
