I've travelled with Busabout on various trips, two of their Eastern Trekker's, a Croatia Sail (the only one without any buses involved), and various festivals. I adore it, but life on the bus is a law unto itself. This is a real amalgamation of things that actually happened on ALL my Busabout trips!

  4. I've never been on Busabout and don't know what it's about (pardon for the pun!) but it sounds FUN! Maybe I'm too old now, but who cares?

    1. it's basically an organised tour, where you can do all sorts of different things with them. I love it because it means I can see all the places I want to without having to any organisation (except getting to a place and home again) which suits me perfectly.
