Nou Camp & Torrential Rain!

Today we had a nice little lie-in to recover from yesterday! We had some of the rubbish breakfast (of which there was hardly any left) from our hostel before heading towards the local station where we caught a train to the main station for free with the interrail passes. This got us LOTS closer to our first plan of the day - visiting Nou Camp! …

A Long Day!

We had a crazy early start this morning - getting up at 5.30am ready to catch a train from the station closest to us (Lyon Perrache) to the international one (Part Dieu) at 6.40am. We arrived at the station and got straight on our 3 hour train to Narbonne which I mostly slept on! The area on the way down looked quite rough but thankfully Narbonne …

... it except control her drinking enough to make good decisions. Also, not all men were bad. Just trust your gut.

"I'm so glad I met you, I feel like I want to be you in a year."
"You probably will be, since I was you a few months ago."

We walked another 20 minutes to our hostel, our disappointments for the night slowly lifting off our backs. We said our goodbyes and went off into our rooms, excited by our possible tomorrows.

Santiago to Barcelona - Trip day 42

... WiFi. The Barcelona train left on time and we had the four seats (one spare) around our own table in first class. As I had booked the train tickets week in advance we got them at a great price. The Santiago to Ourense sector was only €16:30 each and the nearly 12hour across Spain sector (800km) to Barcelona in first class was only €35.55 each. Makes the QR long distance rail prices look pretty ordinary! ...

... main street we walked through the markets a few of a friend on the first contiki recommend. The juices were the highlight of the place all freshly squeezed with some very interested in combination's of fruit, my drink was a coconut and kiwi fruit one. It was delicious!
As we continued on towards our hotel which was bout a 2minute walk from the main street we realised what people meant by Spain being dodgy. Every 50m or so someone was trying to sell us something whether it be ...

    Strange set up as it wasn't very clear where it was as there was just a random tiny door on the street which you had to go through before going up some big staircase to get to the reception through another door - like a maze!
    Very noisy rooms due to the bars nearby (although you cannot fault the location for the main part of Barcelona I suppose) and the rooms are really stuffy!
    The shared bathroom was disgusting - I wouldn't use the shower because it clearly had not been cleaned so relied on a wet wipe! And the breakfast was very minimal, running out by the time we had got to it at around 8.30am!
    It's what you get for budget accommodation though I suppose!
