Adapting in Bulgaria: transport

by Twino Ivan

Transportation is a really life easing fact and different countries have grown to finding out how easiest it can be elevated.

My transportation experience in Bulgaria has been inexplicably overwhelming as compared to the style of the one in my country.

In Uganda, the payment procedure is mostly cash and when i came here, I had to adapt paying in different forms like with the transportation cards, it was at first a challenge to know how it works when it came to paying with the card.

In Addition, i was staggered by the way the public transportation was designed, electric and non electric,underground and up, its was really an amazing impression.

However, the challenging bit is when i go for a metro and i am always confused to which side i must take  and the similarities in the metro station structures also confuse me mostly.

I believe i am to adapt all the social way of life here in Bulgaria.
