Ella "Met lots of new friends on the bus! Its easy to get to know people on the bus since you spend the nights together in a shared accomodation etc. Most of the drivers are really nice, some of them arent. Straymate booking system can be really fustrating sometimes, I also recommend booking almost every hop on and hop off in advance ( more than one week) unless you have a lot of time to spend there.

    It's safe to say I had an amazing time with Stray, and would definitely use them again. I was on the bus almost every day and although I was only there for a short time, it didn't feel rushed at all. I enjoyed the stops we had on the way between stops... Read more
