Travelling on a Shoestring

I’m pretty sure we’re all agreed that travelling the world is a great thing to do. And when you can do it on a frugal budget (not a cheap one), it’s even better!

take the train, not the plane – possibly the most civilised form of transport available. I love taking the train when I’m on holiday. My current favourite trip was from Budapest to Vienna, so cheap and so easy. One of these days I want to travel on the Trans-Siberian express from Moscow to Beijing.

My added tip? If you do consider using the train – even for a moment – you must check out The Man in Seat Sixty-One; the greatest site on the topic of intercontinental train travel (I have mentioned this site before).
