The Journey

Don't count on averaging more than 60km/h on most bus journeys. Buses often arrive in a town in the early hours of the morning, which can be a hassle. On most trips of more than three hours you'll stop at roadside restaurants serving cheap food. Ice-cold water is normally available on the bus and is safe to drink. Every two hours or so the driver will stop to have his tachograph checked by the police as a precaution against speeding. If it's summer, try to get a seat on the side facing away from the sun.
