We got on the bus at about 21:00, thinking that we’d be leaving at 21:00…How we were wrong!
We were waiting for a few people to stop their argument with the driver, so we didn’t end up leaving until around 21:45.
We had a kid and his mum sat next to us and just 2 plug sockets for the whole bus… That basically put using ‘mobile devices’ out of the question! Well, that and the wifi was terrible and most of the time didn’t work!
Behind us were a German couple (believe they were actually from Austria, but yeah) who decided that being drunk was a good idea for an 18 hour bus journey!
The man was talking loudly and then the wife would get annoyed and shout at him. This went on for a while!
We managed to get about 6 or so hours sleep, despite the man and woman throwing up and being loud!
We had to stop at a boarder check, get off the bus and complete the check, then drive 2cm down the road for another check.
Once we were in the Ukraine, the time flew. It’s an interesting place, it’s the first place that is a lot different to the UK.
We had to figure out where to catch our bus to get to our apartment, which takes about 35 minutes to get to the correct street and it was very crowded!
You walk on and just throw money at the driver’s area, and he passes change back. Very odd!
The busses are also very old and broken, it feels a lot like what we think Asia will be like!
Tonight then plan is to get some food, maybe walk into the centre, find where we need to go tomorrow for our fun plans and also find the train station so we are able to get tickets for the train to leave Ukraine when we leave.
