Pros: bus driver was very friendly and helpful, we even arrived a bit earlier than expected. Cons: Providing wifi password in a more clear way, there was wifi but I was not able to log onto it. Tips: bring non internet forms of entertainment just in case (like a book, a Switch, something to color), bring plugs so you can charge stuff.
