Mega Bus Experience
There’s comes a point when things you considered important are not as important. I needed to be in Miami at a certain time and back in Orlando for meetings and the such. Instead of paying a high price for airline tickets and the such I decided I would give Mega bus a shot. The process was pretty simple. Go online but a ticket. Unlike gray hound you can not but one at the counter. So I went online and thought I would splurge on a good seat since I was saving money instead of an airline ticket. I bought a reserve seat wide window. At this point o had no idea of the seat or bus. I have to admit the check in place was not warm and cozy but it was functional which at this point was the most important thing.
I arrived early and check in got my assigned seat. All was well. Then came the bus. So my seat was number 10 second floor. Yes, wide windows for my viewing pleasure. There was no one next to me the whole time which was great. The seats are very comfy with a small tray for drinks. Which was great. Awesome leg room and a view.
Power outlets for any electronics, free wi-fi and a restroom. Now this is what sold me on trying the mega bus. The free wi-fi and plugs. I find great satisfaction on getting some work done as I travel. I arrived early to Miami which was also convenient as I was having my brother pick me up. Concourse H is pretty much away from all the airport chaos. All in all its a great service, convenient and inexpensive.
We had the opportunity to drive the sexy Ford Fusion
Our goal is to provide you with a review on the following areas.
- Would it be comfortable for a long drive?
- Is it family friendly?
- Is it gas efficient?
We traveled from Miami to Lakeland on our first trip usually after a couple of hours in the same car your back begins to ache and the seats are no longer comfortable.
On the Fusion I was utterly surprised on its comfort!
What made it this comfy?
The seats were adjustable and soft. The passenger side has a great leg room. On the door of the passenger side there is enough space for reading material and water bottles. I used this space quite a bit for a book, water and a make up bag.
What amazed mostly is the trunk space. We stacked 4 suitcases, a big sign, camera case with tripod and 2 hiking bags.
Is the Ford Fusion Family Friendly?
As I mentioned trunk space was a big plus for us. Back seat easily fit 3 kids comfortably or 2 kids with one car seat – that was a little tight. Each child can easily have a tablet or toys comfortably without disturbing the passenger side. On the passenger side easily reclines to reach for lost toys or pacifiers. Back seat would easily fit a cooler for baby bottles or snacks.
Is the Ford Fusion really gas efficient?
As I mentioned we drove to Lakeland a total of 5 hour drive. We barely hit the half a tank mark. At one point we were getting 38 miles per gallon. The Ford Fusion was extremely generous on gas.
Overall aside from just efficiency it is a beautiful car inside and out. We drove a Sunset color that was just gorgeous.
