One of the most fun experiences of the trip was getting to travel in a large assortment of modes of transportation. The first mode of transportation we got to experience was the airplane. I had been on several airplanes in my day, including ones that have gone overseas. However, I was a lot younger and therefore a lot smaller back then, so the airplane seats were much more comfortable.
Lindsey was sleeping with her mouth open, so we were messing with her.
The second mode of transportation we got to experience was the public transportation bus system. This even included one of those cool double decker buses that you see in the movies. These were a lot of fun to get on with our bus passes. Also, it greatly cut down on the amount of walking we had to do in the city.
Caroline and I were riding around on a bus.
Thirdly we got to ride the subways, or railways and tubes depending on what country you are in at the moment. This was by far my favorite type of transportation in which we got to partake. Most of the time it was a pretty comfortable ride, but other times we were packed so close I could tell what strangers had eaten for breakfast. Due to the fact there were 20 girls on the trip and five guys, there were times I felt like I was in an Axe body wash commercial.
This was one of the less packed subways that we rode on.
Another type of transportation was the charter buses that we took around. Nicholas Crump, Katelyn Bell, and I would always grab the very back seat and take turns laying down and sleeping. These were always fun trips where we could all sit down, relax, and just hangout. Except when our union bus driver had to stop for a smoke break every hour, or when the one bus driver we had squinted one of his eyes, stared at all of us, then asked us if we liked ghost.
Just us having a little fun on the bus.
We kicked it Andy Samberg style while we were in Venice.
We were on a boat, however, we were not going very fast.
Finally one of the most unique types of transportation we got to take was the overnight train to Paris, France. These had little sleeper cars that each had six beds in them. So naturally all the guys had one to ourselves. It was very pleasant to hang out with just the guys for a while and relax. That train ride was probably the most sleep I had at any one point on the trip.
We didn’t have a shoe to put in the door so we just used my head.
Overall, it was a great experience to travel Europe in all these different vehicles. I think this trip would have even made John Candy and Steve Martin proud.
