I quickly checked in and was escorted to my room by a lovely the hotel owner. It was a family run guest house, actually. I loved it. My train dream had come true. 30 minutes later I was resting my bruised body on a comfy bed with a cold drink in my hand, watching some blockbuste movie with Greek ...
