No-one cares what you (or anyone else for that matter) get up to inbetween bus rides, whether its shopping for New Desinger Heels, or going to the toilet, or whatever.

Please all, can we keep this thread for 'interesting' round trips, rather than a journal of every banal or trivial activity you may get up to!
