MEANS OF TRANSPORT during our trip..

okay..this post may not sound interesting..nonetheless im including it to make my record more complete..so bear with me ok?:p

~bus...

definitely the most memorable one will be the 9 hour bus trip from Glasgow to London and vice versa..spend most of my time dozing off; the 5 hour bus trip from Prague to Vienna was enjoyable for me..watched my 1st czech movie "Elementary School" (if i remember it correctly) which was kinda interesting, and had cappucino and hot choc in the bus-a total new experience for me!

waiting for bus outside Hellbrunn Palace, Salzburg..


One of the funny incidents was on our way back from Mainau Island. We were supposed to take bus back to the city centre of Konstanz..james and i were walking in front and suddenly we saw the bus tat we were supposed to take was already there..not wanting to miss the bus (as we’ve to wait for another half an hour for another bus), James ran to ask the bus driver to stop and wait for us, whereas I ran to tell the others to hurry up..and after we reached the bus stop..we saw the bus leaving with james in the bus, and everyone was startled..and the moment james appeared after taking the next bus..the first phrase he said was.. 孩子们,我回来了!wahaha!the whole situation was so funny! and according to him, the bus driver just shut the door and drove away when he requested for him to wait for a while...

~aeroplane..

1st time staying overnite at the Stansted airport, London before catching an early flight to Prague..cant belif there were quite a lot of ppl staying overnite at the airport..so it wasnt as scary and dangerous as we thought..but still not easy to sleep well with important documents to worry about..

~train...

Sitting in the train for hours traveling from city to city in Germany..for me the journey was interesting..

looking at the amazing view from the window..

snapping pictures..


chatting and gossiping with the others..

listening to music..

singing songs together..(especially all the zhang zhen yue’s songs)..

playing taiti..

playing killer...extremely funny experience..after a few days of training, pun transformed from the super-blur killer to hebat killer;kha hong and sekfatt were the silent killers; sipeng, suokteng,james and ahmeng either get killed by killer or kena suspected as killer(haha..maybe they got the keji look) ; suechoo..not so skilful as she oways had the satisfied smile whenever she became killer;as for me..i think im quite skilful *ahem* but i admit im a bad guesser larr..oways point at the wrong killer..hiakz

At most times during the train rides, we’d to transit for a few times (getting down the train, going to another platform and taking another train)

For example..the trip from Vienna to Salzburg, I think we’d to transit for about four times..

call me 变态 but I actually enjoyed running around with a big backpack( especially when the transit time was only a few minutes apart and we’d to run as fast as possible)..kinda reminds me of Amazing Race..

However, during our trip to Europa park, we were too excited toking to each other until we missed the stop that we were supposed to go down..luckily mashi and wee nien reminded us and we quickly went down the next stop which was a very isolated place..according to the timetable, the next train was going to be 1 hour later..but that day was our lucky day..just when we were discussing wat to do next, 说时迟那时快 ,we heard a train coming (it was such a coincidence that the previous train was late)..so the next thing we noe, everyone was running like mad towards the train..wow..rili an exciting start for the day!


~hop on hop off tram...

this tram saved our lives in Schonbrunn Palace by preventing us from freezing to death!!haha..get to tour around the castle..the idea of taking pictures was still more tempting..so some of us jumped off the tram at times to have a quick snap..


拼了!甘愿发抖也要拍照..:)


~cable car...

using the cable car to and fro Hohensalzburg Fortress in Salzburg..can see very nice view as well!




~tram..

taking tram is also a common way of traveling within the city..we were not used to see tram on the road and were extra careful whenever we crossed the roads.. In Prague, at the beginning we weren’t familiar of the route..and end up taking the correct tram but going to the opposite direction..haha..but it was also a gud experience since we get to see a different part of Prague..
Whereas in germany..pun as the tour guide was kinda lagging at times..he’d only inform us to go down after the tram has stopped for a while..luckily we were not so lagging..sempat to jump down before the tram moved..haha!

~walking

And of course..we've spent hours walking around everyday, never been so fit in my life!!

walking in Neuschwanstein..


walking up to the Heidelberg castle..the slope was very steep!!something like walking up the slope near our hostel..just that the journey was much longer!!

oh..and during the first nite in Salzburg, we were walking back to Yoho Hostel and we actually got lost! it was such a coincidence that the blur family was walking together..Pun(blur king), james(da blur), me(xiao blur) and suechoo(our new member in the blur family) were busy chatting..then suddenly, we realised that the others have disappeared and we were in the middle of nowhere!bt luckily pun had a map with him..and after discussing and walking around..we still managed to find our way back before the others came to look for us..kinda funny looking back nw..hiak hiak:p

Kha Hong said...

Hahaha.. really reminds me of the trip..

When we ran with full speed towards the moving bus with james inside.. & then looked at each other, speechless for a few seconds..

And yes, because of the blur king, we had to pay full attention to the movements of others if we were sitting far away from the exit of the bus..
