Well it may not be the fastest means of transport, but it is definitely more relaxing than being packed into a flying metal tube with 100 of your friends.
As long as you are not in a big hurry, traveling by coach is a wonderful way to unwind, unplug, loosen up and even make new friends. Next time you want to travel upcountry, forget the planes and the fast cars. Go by a bus or train and have the time of your life.
The beauty about traveling by coach is that you get to watch the ever-changing scenery. You will enjoy the feeling of brushing against the clouds if you are flying at 40,000 feet, but can you really appreciate the scenery at that height, while moving at 700 mph? If you want to enjoy the diversity of the gorgeous countryside: the roads zigzagging between imposing hills, the thick forests with tall trees caressing the sky and the picturesque lakes forming kaleidoscopes with the sun – you have to go by coach.
Another great side to traveling by coach is the company you travel with, especially if you have a few close friends sharing the journey with you. The people are part of what makes the journey exciting; the new friends you make, the stories you share and the jokes you make. Most of the people who travel by coach, especially for longer distances, are never in a hurry since they know the journey will be fairly long. When everybody is settled, it makes for a great environment on board. Fellow passengers are usually friendly and amiable, and the conversations are as interesting and varied as the characters onboard.
What about the nights? There is no experience like lying in a soft bed and the coach gently rocking you to sleep. When you get tired of sleeping there is always someone awake with whom you can chat the night away. Alternatively, you can always open the window and let the night breeze whoosh past your face and ruffle your hair. The sight of distant lights disappearing in the horizon is the stuff of dreams for the creative mind. It is during this time that you can brainstorm and get exciting ideas for an upcoming novel or meditate about your life. If you are looking a quite time to think things over, travel by coach during the lazy afternoons or late evenings.
There are many people who love traveling by coach because they know it’s a rich experience; refreshing, enjoyable and stimulating. Is traveling by coach fun? Certainly!…
