Although part of the route of our trip was predetermined by Busabout’s fixed North and South Loop, we still had some planning to do as we land in Frankfurt to attend ‘IFFA’ (the worlds largest meat conference for those in the industry), then to independently discover the Greek islands and Spain before somehow making our way to an “off the beaten track” region of southern France to be with my family by May 31st. After attempting to navigate train sites in foreign languages and comparing different airfares and routes I came across the site ‘Rome2Rio‘ which made this process much simpler.
Basically, it’s a god send. It does all the hard work for you. Just type in two destinations and it will give you options to get there via land, air and sea with precise directions, links to train schedules, flight times, transport prices and more… Itinerary – sorted!
