Today I travelled to mainland Spain for the first time in my life.
I’ve been to the islands, Ibiza, Tenerife, the other ones whose names I cannot remember. And I’ve just realised I’ve already lied to you in that first sentence. Because I’ve been to mainland Spain before. After my ski trip in January we got a bus from Andorra to Barcelona airport. I slept the entire way and woke up as we arrived at the airport. So I guess the more accurate thing to say would be “I was awake in mainland Spain for the first time”
We had a long journey from Montpellier to Barcelona, all of the super fast direct trains we want to get on won’t let us on, they only allow a certain amount of interrail passes per train, so we have to get non-direct connecting trains that take double the time.
We figured out that a week today I will have woken up in my own bed for the first time in two and a half months.
Until tomorrow, were in Barcelona.
