Megan and I woke up early to make it to our bus on time.
I think it was like 7:00 or something insanely early like that. Kendra actually missed the bus. D: But we met up later, so it was all good! We walked around Petite France a little bit, which actually comes from the slang term for syphilis back in the day, which was something like the little French disease. Soldiers used to be housed in the area and the prostitutes followed the money. It was soooo gorgeous though.
Strasbourg is actually on a little island, and so there’s water all the way around it and through it, so we also went on a boat ride as the last thing we did (I might’ve fallen asleep and have accidentally booked the ticket for the day before, but was still allowed on the boat… ^^) before heading back to the bus to Freiburg around 10 p.m. or 11 p.m.
We actually met Martha and her friend on the bus. They were coming back from some other city.
There was also a little bit of a delay before the bus could leave. A girl wanted to get on the bus, but had forgotten her passport, and because we were crossing the border, FlixBus required everyone to have a passport. So she started yelling at the driver and the driver was yelling back, and well.. She didn’t get on the bus, but I think her friend did. Anyway, if the bus is stopped by border control and someone didn’t have their passport, the bus driver would be fined, need to stop driving the bus, and another driver and bus would need to come pick us all up and it would just be a mess. (The driver ranted about all of the specifics once we got moving again…) Anyway, it was quite interesting.
