Traveling by bus is considered by many to be the most uncomfortable means of transportation. Indeed, bus terminals are often very small, and reveal an interesting cross section of society.
Bus travel can also be very time-consuming, although it allows a fuller experience of the country. You may feel inefficient or unable to afford better means when you dream of travel by bus. In defense of busses, the passenger camaraderie is very high, especially on long trips or packaged tours. Who your dream companions are during the bus trip should be considered carefully, as well as your interactions with them. It may be that you have collected a valued set of friends for a journey of particular shared interest. If this is the case, finding a common thread amongst either the people or the sights would be useful.
