A visit to an airport

Today, let’s talk about a visit to an airport. Many of us are likely to visit one when we go on holiday. Others who don’t jet-off are likely to pick someone up or drop them off at the drop off zones outside most airports. These days many airport owners make a killing by charging exorbitant car park fees, both for short stay and long stay car parks. People are encouraged to take the bus or train to avoid this.

What is couchsurfing?

Today, let’s talk about couchsurfing. What’s that I hear you ask? In a nutshell it’s when you kip on a strangers couch when travelling. Risky? I think so. Yet many young people around the world think it is not. The webpage www.couchsurfing.org finds you a registered couch for the night!

Today’s theme actually began on a train I took recently from Budapest in Hungary. I was travelling with a friend to Bratislava in Slovakia. On it we met several travellers; including a South Korean student who was travelling around Europe for two months alone! She was taking the night train to Prague in the Czech Republic.
