  seats on bus or train
by mapakettle

Ma Kettle and I use public transport a lot, which includes local bus service, Trains, and Sita Bus services which travel from town to town.

For the most part, these modes of transportation are great throughout Italy. However today, I sat on a seat cushion on which some unfortunate soul had had an accident, and I ended up with a very powerful smell of urine on my jeans.

I'm hoping it occurred on the final leg of my journey...

Never again will I travel without a plastic bag which I will lay upon the cushion prior to sitting. This was the first time this has ever happened to me, but I shudder to think if it had happened on the start of a three or four day trek.

Mode: TO
Type: Train
