The magic bus


4/2 Got up early today to get a free bus to the train station. Lots of people were there waiting for the one bus. When the bus turned up a small scale riot broke out. Two young newly-weds who were waiting there first missed it, but the driver said the next one will be arriving shortly. Next bus pulled in and all hell broke loose. We pushed our way in, throw our bags in and took our seets. The driver said 'All going to the airport?' We replied 'Ye very funny.' But he really was going to the airport and we all had to get off. Eventually a bus turned up and we all got to the trainstation on time. The train goes right across the middle of New Zealand or should that be Middle-Earth? The journey took in the foothills of the Southern Alps. We got to see some stunning views. We got to Graymouth at 12.45, got met by Neptune's free hostel shuttle bus. It took all of 2 min to get to the hostel. Neptunes is a big old house that was once a big posh hotel, now it is converted into a stunning hostel with no bung beds, but proper quilt made bads. As they run out of beds in the dorm, they put us into a double for the same price, Quick walk round town, shopping at the supermarket and that was us.

4.2 Vstavali jsme brzy a vyrazili na bezplacenny autobus ktery nas mel odvezt na vlakove nadrazi. Spousta lidi uz tam cekala na jeden autobus. Nemuzeme se tam vsichni naskladat. Autobus dorazil a lidi se div neprarazili aby se tam dostali. Dva novomanzele, kteri tam byli prvni se do autobusu ani nepokouseli dostat, protoze pry prijedou dva dalsi. Za nekolik okamziku prijel dalsi mini-autobus a my se na nej vrhli. Nahazeli jsme batohy do ulozneho prostoru, nahrnuli se do autobusu a ridic se zeptal 'Jedete vsichni na letiste'. My jednohlasne odpovedeli 'Jen si delej legraci'. On si ale legraci nedelal a vazne mel namireno na letiste. Vsichni jsme museli vystoupit a zacali premyslet o taxi. Autobus se nakonen priritil, my do nej nalezli a vlak jsme stihli. Vlak jel skrz Novy Zealand a my videli jizni Alpy. Dorazili jsme do Graymouth ve 12.45 a byli vyzvednuti nekym z naseho hotelu. Naskakali jsme do auta a byli odvezeni do hotelu, ktery byl asi 2 minuty od zastavky. Neptunes, nas levny hotel, byl kdysi drahy a luxusni hotel. Dnes je predelan do lacineho stylu pro Backpackers jako jsme my se Stevem. Postele byli povlecene a ustlane a nepotrebovali jsme spacaky. Protoze prijelo vice lidi nez oni cekali a nemeli dost posteli ve velkem pokoji nabydli nam pokoj pro 2 za stejnou cenu. Sli jsme se projit po meste, nakoupit a spat.
