The tip offs about when super cheap advance ticket are going to go live online are a thing of beauty too! Did you know for example that you can travel from London to Newcastle and back for as little as £28, just by cruising nationalexpresseastcoast.com and chatting with their discount reps at any staffed station?

I was never too serious about the traveling tips. At college, we used to have several trips a year and all of them were spontaneous. That was the best in them. I have come across thousands of tips and they were selected as 30 top tips by the guys that can do your assignment on the blog, but still - they don't make sense, if you have a purpose to enjoy the moments.
