Public Transportation: Your New Best Friend in Ireland and Beyond
Intercity buses: Crowded, right? And noisy, and dirty, and downright strange sometimes? Wrong. Dear hesitant American student: I’ve been where you are, I promise: anxiously looking up tour buses, figuring out where you can go from your host city, and weighing it against costs of groceries and mail home, and everything else. I know it’s easy to see the buses and trains around you as just another wild card in a new place, not worth the effort. But that’s not the whole story. Before you write this traveler’s best friend completely off your resource list, I’d like to share you the ways the buses and trains here can not only help you out while abroad, but completely transform your stay somewhere new, helping you blaze your own trail and craft a unique, authentic experience wherever you go.
