Things started weird from the moment I had to hop on the train, since there were two trains departing at the same time from the same platform, which didn't make any sense at all, and I started to get nervous right away. A backpacker came to me asking what was the train to Budapest, and I had no idea. Once we looked around, everybody was as confused as we were. I went to ask people which train to get, and the answers made me insane. Some said they didn't know, others said it was the one already at the platform but we would have to change to a bus, and others said we had to sit at the beginning of the train because somewhere on the way it was going to split in two (what?).
The guy who had asked for my help just said "I'm sticking with you!" to which I answered "Please do!"
On the train we started to relax and decided if something important or some change was necessary they would tell us, so we ended up falling ashleep on the slowest train ever. All I know is out of the blue a guy came yelling "Budapest! You have to change, get out, get out. Budapest. Go to the bus!!" WHAT? We grabbed our stuff in such a rush I broke my glasses.
This is not cool! What the hell is going on? I bought a direct ticket, I don't want to take the bus!
We hop on the bus, and a lady was checking our passports and the three of them got stamps on theirs, but since I'm European I never get any stamps on mine, so I nicely asked her if I could get one too, and that's how I got my first passport stamp (you have no idea how happy I was!).
But of course it was not gonna be that easy! After two buses and three trains, the last stop wasn't at Budapest Deli station has is was suupose to be, and we ended up someplace else, and everybody had the directions from Deli and not that station, so we had a new mission: getting to the Pest side! Nobody spoke English, nobody knew anything (as always!).
We somehow managed to get to the Pest side, me still with the guy from Califórnia who kinda looked like he knew the way, so even though my hostel was not the same as his, I followed him till the very end, because the sun was setting down and I was not gonna be alone and lost in a gigantic city like Budapest at night.
