Предлоги в контексте - Travel Plans - Владимир vs Вадим



I live —- Sweden, but every summer I like to travel —- Britain to visit my family and friends. I hate flying, so last summer I decided that —- a change I would travel —- bus. According —- the brochure I received —- the travel agency, the bus would leave Malmo —- 9.30 —- Friday evening and arrive —- London the following Sunday —- 7.30 —- the morning. The journey would involve taking the boat —- Trelleborg —- the south coast —- Sweden —- Travemunde —- West Germany. Then we would drive through Germany, Holland and Belgium before taking another boat —- Ostend —- Dover. It sounded wonderful - —- least —- theory.
—- fact, the journey was a nightmare —- start —- finish. To begin —-, I made the mistake —- not reserving a berth between Trelleborg and Travemunde since it was quite impossible to sleep due —- the combined singing —- groups —- drunk Germans and Swedes, each trying to outdo the other —- terms —- volume and vulgarity.
Again, I had forgotten that you are not allowed to smoke —- Swedish buses, which made the journey —- stops seem even longer than it was —- reality. It also meant that when we did eventually have a break I spent the whole time making up —- the hours when I had not been able to smoke, —- the result that I could not be bothered to waste valuable “smoking” time —- queuing up —- a meal.
—- the time we reached London I was a physical and mental wreck! I had not slept or eaten properly —- almost thirty-six hours and all I wanted to do was sleep. So I booked —- a really shoddy hotel next —- Victoria Coach Station and slept soundly —- twelve hours, —- the same time vowing that never again would I make the journey —- Sweden to Britain —- bus. —- fact, after that experience, flying took —- a whole new dimension and far —- hating it, I would now not dream —- travelling any other way.

I hate flying, so last summer I decided that for a change I would travel by bus.

According to the brochure I received at the travel agency, the bus would leave Malmo at 9.30 on Friday evening and arrive in London the following Sunday at 7.30 in the morning.

The journey would involve taking the boat from Trelleborg in\on the south coast of Sweden to Travemunde in West Germany.

Then we would drive through Germany, Holland and Belgium before taking another boat in Ostend to Dover.

It sounded wonderful - at least in theory.

In fact, the journey was a nightmare from start to finish.

To begin with, I made the mistake of not reserving a berth between Trelleborg and Travemunde since it was quite impossible to sleep due to the combined singing of groups of drunk Germans and Swedes, each trying to outdo the other in terms of volume and vulgarity.
