What followed is probably the most painful but at the same time amazingly funny bus journey of my life so far. I only wish I had the story telling skills of someone like Stephen Fry to describe it in its full glory.

It was quite clear that the amount of baggage was not going to fit into this bus but we were wrong – it would fit by one way or the other
