PIC: Man travelling across Europe finds a Dublin Bus Stop in the last place you’d expect

Rory Cashin

Dublin Bus

We have a feeling you’ll be left waiting a while for a bus to arrive.

We all know someone (or ARE that someone) who has stolen a traffic cone or a road sign or something random and brought it home.

Why? No reason. Seemed funny at the time, most likely. But now you have a traffic cone or road sign to deal with.

However, this is taking things to the next level.

An entire Dublin Bus Stop has popped up in the corner of a pub… but not in Dublin. Not even in Ireland.

In Kosovo.

Yep, that is a LONG WAY to bring a bus stop.

Here it is, and read on below to find out more:

JOE reader Kevin Flanagan sent us in the pic, and told us the following about it:

“I’m travelling throughout the Balkans right now and was in Kosovo recently. I walked into a bar called Miqt Pub, it’s not an Irish bar, and to my shock, there was a Dublin bus stop for the 46A in the corner.

“How it got here, why it’s here, is a mystery that needs solving.

“Kosovo shares borders with Albania, Serbia, and Macedonia. It’s status as an independent country is contested by Serbia (and a few others) since they declared a Republic at the end of The Homeland War (1998-1999).

“I can’t imagine a scenario that would involve a bus stop from Dublin being removed, transported to Kosovo, and put on display in a random bar. Who this this? Why? How?

“I waited two hours for the bus to Dun Laoghaire and it never came. Typical Dublin bus, haha!”

Cheers to Kevin Flanagan for sending this our way. Got a story for JOE? Fill out our online form here.
