Spent one night on the train then three in Barcelona. The train employee booked me a schedule that I never would have made without the help of some amazing strangers! I had three transfers. One was only ten minutes between trains the second six! Not much time when you don’t know the stations or the platform numbers! The last transfer was at a separate train station in Madrid. The booking agent told me it was a 30 minute walk. I had an hour between trains so I figured no problem but when I looked online it was a two hour walk (20-30 minute taxi ride)! I felt like I was practicing for the amazing race!
Barcelona is an interesting city! They definitely embrace graffiti and diversity! The Festival of Sant Joan was going on so lots of activity and fireworks all day and night! There’s a lot to see and do here but I have just focused on the Gaudí museums, Sagrada Família, Picasso Museum, beach and walking around.
I was having a hard time leaving my shoes, but it would be silly not too. I took them with me this morning and sat on a bench and set them down by the trash bin and walked into the market for ten minutes. When I came out they were gone and it made me happy to think someone else may be getting some use out of them.
I will be flying home early in the morning. Thanks so much for traveling with me! Your support has meant more than you will ever know!!
