it was slow, for starters. the bus from durres-tirana is 40 minutes including traffic. the train was like 70 or 75 though it is scheduled to be 1 hour. all the windows were shattered, i assume from people throwing rocks. i sat in the very front which porbably was a mistake cause several windows were open and it was really loud when the engine blew its whistle, which was frequently, i dunno why. we went through a tunnel and it stank. but there was much more space on the train than on the really really overcrowded buses that have zero legroom. i definitely agree with the guidebook that says don't take the train for any journey other than tirana-durres. it is cheaper, though.

i also took 2 videos in motion from the station, or 3, i forget. but they might be the first thing to get deleted if i'm low on space.

Are any of the towns/places we go to in these superthreads genuinely worth visiting? Even GG thought Dildo was a disappointment.

Hah, somehow I am not surprised. Sounds like quite the experience, though I'm not entirely sure it's quite the experience I'd seek from a train myself, heh. I definitely will be looking forward to seeing your pictures.

Well, I'll try to pop down to Hiscock Road in the next couple of weeks and see what that part of Melbourne is like ...

Not much to share, unfortunately. Learning how to drive, finally (got the permit yesterday), but that's about it. Don't worry, your advice still has a chance to come in handy.

i'll be taking some overnight trains, minimum i'll be doing varna (bulgaria) to bucharest and bucharest to belgrade. i may also book 2 nights in a row to go round trip from bucharest to chisenau, the moldovan capital, just to see moldova, but i'm wary especially of doing that alone, so we'll see.

well, good luck, and remember, if any gets in her eye, she has every right to spit the rest in your face, knee you in the balls, etc.
