"I like eggs with my ham, when starting on a journey: fried not poached, and mind you don't break 'em"

Said Thorin the dwarf, before the start of the amazing journey that would lead to the discovery of the Ring, in Lord of the Rings. My breakfast won't be this big tomorrow morning as I leave, very early, for my internship in the Czech Republic.

I'll travel by coach, with Eurolines, the same that took me to my first experience abroad, as an Erasmus student in Nantes, almost 4 years ago (seems like an eternity). This time, the trip we'll take a day, departure at 5.30 am from Bucharest, arrival in Prague the following day at 7.30 am. The ticket was about 80€, a lot less expansive than the plane, as there are no direct low costs going to Prague. It's a bit uncomfortable but still manageable.

Once in Prague, in Florenc bus station, I'll have to take a train from Hlavni Nadrazi, the main railstation, that will take me directly to my destination, Bakov.

So right now I'm packing, only the basic, but already my suitcase weights 20 kg, and I'm not finished. For 6 months, I'll need a lot of clothes and stuff, some that I'll have delivered to me, some I'll take with me in my suitcase, backpack, and laptop bag. Another plus of traveling by coach is that the weight limit is 35kg and the extra charge is a lot less than for planes. And I'm taking advantage of it.

Next, i'll talk about my actual trip. Stay tuned, there are more advnetures after a short pause. And boy, some adventure it'll be.. Bye for now.
