Italy trip – say Goodbye

First of all I should go to Verona and then continue to Munchen and end up in Prague. However, during the look for some accommodation in Munchen I got an offer to visit Liechtenstein. It was a bit risk, lots of rebooking of Flix buses but then I thought myself why not? Actualy, this year I have visited Vatican, San Marino, thus I must visit another smallest country in Europe. Therefore, on Saturday’s morning (12th Novemver) I took the Flix bus headed to Chur in Switzerland.

Firts of all I didn’t plan to write about my only „traveling day“. Partly because I didn’t expect to take some photos and partly because I thought it is too boring to write about it. But I think it would be a sin not to give you my recommendation.

I really recommend to take the bus/train/car and go from Milano, pass Lugano and continue to the north of Switzerland (towards to Chur). I have never seen something so amazing before. But ok, I really love seeing the mountains :). Btw. it was my first meeting with snow this year.

Let’s go back. The second reason why I decided to write this article about all day journey from Venezia to Chur is that I would like to say a few words about Flix buses.

As you know I used them almost all time when I was in Italy. Their advantages:

  • book online on their website,
  • rebook every time – get the voucher or refund money,
  • toilet on the board – the most important thing for me,
  • wifi connection on the board,
  • lots of lines going to everywhere (not only Italy),
  • you can pay in euro or czech crowns (better, cheaper).

But ok, just to be honest, now I am struggling with my online account on the website. I cannot pay for any of lines. This was the big problem in Trieste where I have already thought that I will go to Verona and Munchen. In the end I bought the ticket offline in the travel agency. After their support gave me some stupid advice, i.G. delete cache, cookies, change browser and payment card. As like former QA I really know these kinds of problems.

In the travel agency it was a big problem again. Since their English was terrible (more than mine) and I didn’t know that Monacco is Munchen in Italian so first of all I was worried where I would be going to. Actualy, I would like to visit Monaco, why not. But some of days, next time.

In the end I succeed although I paid in euros (i.e. more than I would want to do it) and extra money for the travel agency – tsss, their service isn’t worth paying more.

Ok, stop writing about Flix buses and let’s go back my journey from Venezia. I wanted to work in the bus as I am always doing – just use time. Unfortunately, in that bus the wifi didn’t work.

In Milano I had two hours break, which I used for working and looking for some food.

Then I had an idea to bring my camera up to the bus. I thought myself that maybe I would have some amazing view out of the window of the bus. And really, later it seemed as like as a good idea.

Firstly I took the first part of Alps close to Milano. Because I thought how much amazing it is. Haha, I really didn’t know what I would see next. For this reason, I recommend you to go there. Two following photos are from Italy part still.

After we crossed the boundaries between Italy and Switzerland I had to end my working. It was impossible to write any article when you can see something so overwhelming out of the window. Although I had the wifi connection in the second bus I didn’t do almost nothing.

Btw I was surprised that no one checked my passport card (both of countries – Switzerland, Liechtenstein). What a paradox. Last year every time when I crossed the boundary between the Czech republic and Austria I had to show my passport card. And both of countries are the part of the European union in the opposite of Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

The following photo is from Lugano – the first city in Switzerland. Wonderful sceneries – lake, mountain and I could have seen how people were feeding the swan.

And then it started. Are you asking what? My enjoyment and excitement. I was sitting in the last 5 seats in the bus – good choice for me because I really didn’t know where I should be – the left or the right window? Which of the sceneries I should have taken the first?

I guess that people sitting behind me had to hate me. Because my camere made a noise if I shot the photo and I was jumping from one side to another one all the time. But I couldn’t help myself. I quite didn’t understand how someone can sleep  on this journey. And I saw the plenty of people in the bus who were sleeping.

After almost 10 hours on the journey I was in Chur where my friend picked me up and we both continued to Triesen – small village in the valley. From the car I saw Vaduz – it lies on the slove of the mountains. Wonderful. I can imagine to live there.

Then we had very taste dinner, some Pakistan specialist. But I am unable to write the name of food. I will ask for it :).

In the morning I woke up early because I wanted to run. It was quiet and I met only cows. I must say that they look like different than ours. I will take them later.

At the end of this article I must share the photos from the place where I am living now. In two first pictures you can see the mountains that I see from the window of my room. Unbelievable. With this kind of the view it is the joy to wake up early.

And at the other photos you can see the hills and stream behind my accommodation. A wild nature.

Anyway, I saw the fox. And I was worried whether there are also wolfs and bears :). But my friend assured me that I don’t have to be scared.

With the last photo I would like to say Goodbye Italy. It was amazing time but it is time to enjoy the snow a bit. But never say never. I have lots of invitations so I would like to meet my new friends again. Thank you, Lele, Florencio, Salvatori, Gennaro, Gian, Devis and Antonio. See you soon.
