So this guy’s either a genius at saving money or he’s the cheapest dude that ever walked this earth.

An 18 year old British blogger, who gives his readers tips on how to save money, covered the journey between Sheffield and Shenfield, Ess*x, by taking a flight to Berlin, and another to return to the UK, plus other bus rides; because it saved him £7.72 over taking the train between the two cities.

The meandering journey to save money meant he travelled 1,017 miles more than the distance the train journey would have covered, and he spent seven hours in transit in Germany.

But he had his reasons, as he admitted. It was a chance to see Berlin, a city he had always wanted to.

“Even by my usual standards, I’ll admit this is a rather extreme way of saving money,” Jordon said.

“I know that flying is not environmentally friendly and I won’t do this every time I travel, but this was the cheapest way for me to get home and I got to enjoy a ‘free’ mini holiday to a city I’ve always wanted to visit.”

The journey went something like this; £4 on a train from Sheffield to Derby, £4.20 on a bus from Derby to East Midlands Airport, £11.83 on a Ryanair flight to Berlin, £9.54 on a flight from Berlin to Stansted and £8 on his bus ride home, totalling £37.57.

The cheapest one way ticket for a train between the two cities was £47.
