We spent the whole day on the Internet trying to get train tickets to Mumbai. We bought ‘wait list tickets’, which is like a cancellation system. We waited eagerly to see if enough people would cancel their tickets so we could travel. It turns out they didn’t. There was only one option left to us. The one thing that should be avoided at all costs and only attempted as a very last resort; sleeper bus!
We boarded the bus at 6:00pm and found that we had own private mini cabin. We didn’t think it would be too bad. We forget about the state of the Indian roads and the lack of suspension on all Indian vehicles.
