Useful Info

This page is a continuous work in progress.

As I write more articles I often find that I need to explain the same thing on more than one occasion (in more than one article) to ensure that whatever it is I’m writing makes sense to anyone who reads it. Rather than re-defining the thing in question in every article I’m simply going to link the article to a pre-written explanation/definition which you’ll find indexed on this page.

I’ve also included links to a number of posts that I think will be of help – like information on transferable currencies, information of fare codes, the travel tools I like to use and more.

If there’s anything that you find me discussing on a regular basis that’s unclear and that doesn’t appear on this page, let me know using the contact form (link at the very top left of every page). If it merits its own separate definition or explanation then I’ll include it here.
