Did you try using the kiosk to see if it would give instructions in English? Even if you don't actually make a purchase you might learn something about the system.
Steve, no I did not, but I read the prices 3-5 times ,but nothing was clear about the month pass, which was my only goal. I was looking for more certainty and not testing a kiosk. I guess there is a difference between sort of clear, and clear. After, I went to the office of FilBlue, I was clear, and because I was clear, I purchased a 10 trip, 1 hour per trip pass for 13 Euros. I was extremely lucky. A month pass is 38 Euro, but being I arrived in 15, and leave on 15, I would have needed to pay 76 Euros, they for them to only be in the month, not 30 days. Yet, understanding the city by studying the map is not going to work, yes, study it. When there is a choice between study, and actual experience. You are saying the same thing, why not just experience the Kiosk, and I would have, if my goal was only one trip, then I only lose 2 Euros, but 38 Euros it more than I wanted to risk. And my 30 day idea was 100 percent wrong, and when she told me the ticket was good for one hour per use, I was in. I thought it was just for one vehicle, not Tram and Bus, as much on,, off as I wanted. I speak French and Spanish, and when in doubt, if possible avoid making a decision until there is no doubt, and making a machine explain is beyond my powers. The FilBlue went and got a person who spoke English, and between her bad English, and my good French, we had a good meeting of the mind. There is some mysterious thing my father used to do, he would drive, and drive, and never ask for directions, spend hours trying to do it on his own, we were lost of hours because my father refused to ask. I ask very quickly, often, and repeated, from any business who wants to make money, because they should want to explain to make the money.
I really enjoyed this video. I felt like I was walking and riding beside you. Thanks Andy!
