Or you can use the easiest way: just contact me through my e-mail before arrival and I will wait for you on the bus station or whatever you want..:)
If you came by bus sometimes people will try to get you to go to another place or they are too pushy.This is a common problem and causes a lot of disappointment to the guests not used to this - so informing you in advance can help prevent this.
