Today is the Garlick's 48th wedding anniversary, big plans for a special dinner tonight. Our outing for the day is a bus trip to Salamanca, Spain. We are docked right at the border in ?. A little less than two hours later we are in the golden city as it is called. Finally a working internet signal so we can make arrangements for the last days of our vacation in Lisbon and Evora.

I probably had the most stressful journey to Spain ever. Firstly, my flight from Gatwick to Madrid was delayed by an hour and a half which meant that I missed my coach from the airport to Salamanca. Great- thanks Easy Jet. This then lead to two very helpful Spanish women trying to help us negotiate. But no, the grumpy and very hard to understand bus driver wouldn't let us on. So back we went to the kiosk to buy another bus ticket. Again thanks ...
