the journey was great. As a tall man it’s always uncomfortable in buses, but I have to say that it was better than other buses.

What I did not enjoy was the loading of the luggage, we are told to be there 30mins before the time meaning that the person who packs the luggage has enough time to do so but he was packing as people got onto the bus and this proves to be unwise because not all bags are the same and my bag was put at the bottom and was was crushed and it broke after I asked him not to pack it at the bottom. If he waited for all the luggage then packed it according to weight and size this would not have happened. I told him that I would report this. When we stopped Klawer, I asked one of the drivers if I can have my bag because I needed a change of clothes and my bag was packed in-front at the bottom. He told me that he is not in the mood to pack it down, I even told him that ill pack it myself he said no. My bag was visible and there were not a lot of bags to pack down, so I had to remain in discomfort for 4hours until we reach the final stop. Not the best trip.
