We arrived at London-Luton airport 1,5 hours later. We rushed inside and our first thing was to look for the easy-bus transfer office desk. When we booked our transfer tix we'd read that if the plane is delayed and you miss your transfer because of it then you can get a later transfer for free. So we told the eay-bus woman the whole story that instead of Luton we ended up in Birmingham, but now we're here and we wanna have free transfer tickets as soon as possible, like NOW! But that woman wasn't very nice, she didn't give a crap about us missing our coach. She gave us 3 free tickets to the transfer which leaves at 2pm. Great! Since the ride from Luton to Victroia is 1,5 hours long and our coach to Sheffield leaves at 3pm, it's impossible to make it.
But we spotted out the Greenline transfer agency. We run to their desk and asked for tickets. We were told, that they only sell tickets on the coaches, and there's one coach leaving in 10 mins! We run out of the building to the coach; sooo many people were standing in line to get on, but we tossed them away. It was emergency!!! Oh, finally the coach-guy took our bags and put them into the luggage rack. The student ticket costed 10 pounds, we were lucky coz they accepted our Hungarian student card! We payed and we headed to London Victoria Coach Station!!!!
London was covered by snow, loads of snow and I guess because of everything was so white it didn't seemed like it's one of the biggest cities of the world. It looked so innocent. We had 30 mins to 3 o'clock when we arrived at Victoria. We found the Coach Station easily,we checked the time table and went to gate 20. We didn't had to wait much to get on the Megabus and leave for Sheffield. It was so f****ing cold on the coach. But we only payed 7 pounds for 3 return tickets, so what do we expect???
