"The bus is a wonderful invention. A lot of people can travel at the same time, and the ticket is not very expensive. When we travel by bus, we protect nature. For example, if a person uses his car less, it helps preserving the environment, and at the same time it gives you an adventure - traveling by bus. There are people who can not drive and the bus is their transport. Besides the bus is useful, it is also very funny and interesting. You can visit or go to almost every place on Earth just by bus. "
"Traveling by bus is nice, almost as with a jeep. The buses in Burgas have many extras. They are new, with nice colors. Inside of the bus during summer isn't hot and in winter is warm because there are air conditioning. This winter, I always took the bus, even for short distances, because I knew there would be warm. "

"First stop, 7:12 in the morning. I look at my left hand, where last night I wrote a question "Why I like to ride on a bus?" ... Fifth stop. Looking for a familiar face, but I don't see anyone. And at the same moment I'm sliding my eyes on each passenger separately, I realize that all people are familiar. Every morning, we share 10 minutes of our day. So our shared time is like a little ritual. Last stop. A crowd of rushing people is getting off the bus. Each goes to the next task of his day. I put on a smile that was given to me a moment ago and involuntarily look down to my left hand. This time, my thoughts fly through the countless reasons why I love to ride on a bus. Before I get off the bus I make last look at my companions in this adventure and barely whisper: 'See you tomorrow morning! "
