As most of you might know, my husband and I are planning on backpacking next year and our first stop will be France and then eastwards from there. Since we intend to visit a lot of countries, and on a budget also! We have found a very affordable way to travel from the UK to Paris for £25 one way! That’s from Birgmingham straight to Paris, including the boat fare from Dover to France also with just a 1hour stop in London.
Of course, it’s going to be a longg journey, 12-13hours to be precise! But if you intend on backpacking, then it should be the norm to travel such length of hours and on particularly, a bus! But I have heard that they do wi-fi on the coaches, whoop whoop! And I think we all know how long we are on the internet whether it’s social network sites, to catching up on your favorite programmes or updating your posts on your blog, time will definitely fly by.
The coach company is called MegaBus ( http://uk.megabus.com/) and they do coaches from different parts of the UK and can also take you to Beligum and other European countries. Once I heard about this cheap way of travel, my road became more clearer and bright with our journey to backpack. Looking forward to all the wonderful foods also.
MegaBus here we come!
P.S : Very good tip!!!
If your not too particular with your days on which to travel, take some time to check the prices of how much it’ll cost to your destination on different days. For instance, usual price from Birmingham to Paris one way is £25, but as a lucky search, on 23rd February 2013, it’s only £1! Bargain.
