The Visitor Oyster card
A Visitor Oyster card is the cheapest way to pay for a single adult journey in London. It’s a plastic smartcard. You can use it on the bus， tube， tram， DLR， London Overground and most National Rail services. It’s much cheaper than buying individual tickets， in some cases costing 50% less than the price of a regular paper ticket.
How to get a Visitor Oyster card
You can buy a Visitor Oyster card online. Your card will be delivered by post. The card costs ￡5 and you choose how much money you want to add to the card. This means you can start using the card the moment you arrive in Central London.
How does the Visitor Oyster card work？
The Oyster card works on a pay-as-you-go system. You start by adding money to the card. Then you travel， the cost of the fare will automatically bed educted from your Visitor Oyster card. For example， if you add ￡20 to the card and make a tube journey of ￡2.30， you will have ￡17.70 left on the card.
A few more points：
·A child under the age of 11 travels free when accompanied by an adult.
·You’ll save more money if you use the tube several times. The Visitor Oyster card is “capped (给……定上限)” at ￡6.80 per day.
·You’ll pay more during peak times. Peak fares apply from Monday to Friday (6：30am—9：30 am； 4：00 pm
—7：00 pm)， except for public holidays.
·Reuse the Oyster card by adding credit at a tube station， Oyster ticket shop or Visitor Centre.
You can receive a 50% discount at any shop in London.

The bus screamed to a stop in Nazareth， Israel. Five Australian backpackers boarded and struck up a conversation with me. They asked typical travelers’ questions—where was I going and why was I traveling alone？ My plan was to travel with a friend of a friend， I explained， but when I called her that morning， she didn’t pick up and I had no other way to reach her. My stomach was in knots， but I decided to head out anyway， thinking I might run into her if I traveled to Tiberius， where we had planned to go together.
“Why don’t you travel with us？” one of the backpackers offered. They were experienced adventurers who would work for a few months， save， then travel for as long as they could. Their current plan was to explore the Middle East and Europe in three months while working in London.
It seemed risky to travel with strangers， but my instinct said yes. For the next two weeks， I explored Israel with the backpackers and learned to trust my instincts in all types of new and interesting situations. When they hook a ride， I took the bus， but when they wanted to steal into the King David Hotel’s swimming pool， I led the way. The world opened up to me because I chose to travel alone. I joined complete strangers， who become close friends. Years later， one couple from the backpacking group even flew from Sydney to Phoenix to be in my wedding. The trip was such a special experience that it gave me confidence in all areas of my life. Since then， I’ve backpacked alone across South Africa， sky-dived from 12，000 feet in New Zealand and even moved across the U.S. with no job lined up.
On my third day wandering in Israel with my new friends， I bumped into the woman I was supposed to meet.
Though I was happy she was all right， I was grateful she hadn’t picked up the phone.
