    Getting to Timisoara, Romania

    July 13, 2019 in Romania ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Nearly didn't get here!!
    We took a taxi to the bus station that was on our ticket but the station had no information about the bus departure.
    What to do??!!
    I emailed a Help! message to the bus company hoping they would see it ASAP. They did and rang to say the driver is already there with a white minibus at the taxi stand!! They're not allowed in the big station and there is only 8 passengers so we'll go in a minibus. We didn't know any of this, just assumed it was a normal big bus company out of the bus station.
    All was good in the end, moving at around 140 km/hr to make up time!! We had to wait for the other 6 at the airport.
    Steve got off at Arad to go hunting with a local and I went on to Timisoara.
    Did a big walk into Old Town and the new flash Mall. Quite a mix of dirty ruins, restored old buildings and modern new ones. EU money starting to reshape it.
