When was the last time you rode a bus? Was it out of necessity and was the experience interesting?
The metro bus was two months ago and the Megabus out of state was six months ago. They were both out of necessity.
I rode the bus a few hours ago to go shopping. I do not own a car and living in San Francisco, don't really need one. I ride the bus to work daily and no it is never really interesting. In fact I normally daydream on my way to work
A geology extra credit trip in community college. It was actually one of my favorite classes with great peers and a shocking teacher who was always blunt and getting into trouble herself. The trip was great because it was also a test. Since our class answered most of the questions, she gave us 5 extra points on the next test in addition to the extra credit from going on the trip. BONUS!
I rode the muni bus from our hotel in San Francisco, to the Outside Lands music festival in Golden Gate Park, 2 years ago. It was very interesting, we met some teenagers from Canada and a couple from Lebanon, all on their way to the festival. The bus was very crowded, I'm sure it was not as much of an adventure for the regular riders on the way to work.
I use local buses fairly frequently here in the UK for short journeys into town. We have lovely double deckers, plenty of space on the upstairs deck for panoramic views! They're not too bad value-wise.
My most recent experience of buses for long distance travel happened in Barcelona.We were supposed to catch the overnight sleeper train to Paris but the train was cancelled at the last minute due to a strike by workers in France. Oh no...I knew what the alternative would be...yes, a bus. Yuk.
We were nearly 16 hours on this WCless thing and despite the reclining seats got little to no sleep at all! Plus, we got lost near the border and had to go round and round the roads of this very ancient town before finally finding the correct exit for the main route onwards!
How I missed that sleeper train. How I cursed those French workers.
We regularly go by bus to the local big town, shopping or just for pleasure. Now we're 'oldies' and have bus passes it's cheaper, easier because there's not the hassle of parking and no problem when there are buses every ten minutes. Leave the hassle of driving to someone else and enjoy the scenery!
We caught a bus into Bruges the other day leaving the campervan at a caravan park rather than try find a park in the city . It was interesting seeing a new bus design, new scenery etc. ! We also go on open double decker buses to explore a city like in Berlin. It is a great way to see a place rather than be underground .
Dear freecampingaussie, thanks very much for your interesting comment and image!
If you get to Bath, in Somerset, go on the open-top tour there; it's a lovely city and you can see all the houses on the hills around it.
