If you read and enjoy my travel posts through my website or Mastodon* and you are planning to travel to somewhere I've been and you can't afford an actual travel agent and you find travel planning too stressful or time consuming to fit into your life, I would be delighted to share advice.

My specialties are land and sea (not air) transit, especially long distance European buses, and finding vegan food. I'm happy to also help with general stuff to do, and even more in-depth help with planning and realistic budgeting if you want because I actually love wasting away hours and days researching travel stuff.

@rhiaro How do you get good sleep on long distance busses? I'm doing Leipzig to Edinburgh in a couple of weeks and I'd like to sleep some of the 30hrs it'll take!

@douginamug I pass out immediately. I fit comfortablly across two seats because I'm small. I wake up for border crossings and fall back to sleep again when they're done. It's my superpower. Sorry, that's unhelpful.

I think it's born of getting very motion sick my entire life, so falling asleep when the engine starts is my body's self-defense mechanism.
