I was up early and quickly packed my bags before getting a cab to the train station. My plan was to get a night train to Sofia. I got a ticket, but not a couchette.
During the ride to Bucharest (a places I've been before and am skipping on this trip) I chatted with some of the other passenger and ended up grabbing lunch with a guy getting to take Romania's equivalent to the Bar exam. I then headed to an internet cafe to was the rest of the time. I could have cut it closer with the train time, but after the debacle in Budapest I decided not to.
Not have a bed was pretty terrible and I didn't get much sleep. At least I wasn't seated near the toilet because it smelled really rank on that side!
