Hola from Barcelona!

21 Jun

Thankfully waking up wasn’t too bad today. We got up bright and early at 5:40 to give ourselves enough time to pack and get to the station. We had to walk it because the buses weren’t running yet. Any other given situation this would have been perfectly fine; however, cookie has a lame wheel and has been quite the struggle bus. She was a trooper though and made it with only a couple tantrums. At least this is our last real travel day…
[[ I don’t want to leave 😦 I couldn’t et over how blue the water is and the constant view of the alps surrounding you. The town itself is super relaxed and laid back with tons of adventure sports to do! Just another reason to return again]]

So we were doing fine hoping train to train until our third one just randomly decided to stop in Grenoble… And not leave. The train strike finally caught up with us and ours refused to go any farther. For those who are wondering, Grenoble is not the most bilingual French town… Thankfully we were able to get what we wanted across and find another route to Barcelona that actually gets us earlier than before!

Now train travel only expands from 7:00-20:45 which for all you Americans means 7am to 8:45pm.

Being lucky as were are, our reservations sat next to the creepiest and smelliest two guys on the 4 hour train. Winning…

Finally made it to Barcelona! We had to go up this super steep hill to get to our hostel though… cookie wasn’t feeling it and neither were we. We definitely are feeling that hike today. The weather is so nice here… like we are so not use to it. Finally could wear a dress and be completely comfortable! We were so happy because we even got a late dinner out/ gelato and ate it out in one of the squares watching all of the locals hangout while we practiced our own spanish. (I am a wee bit rusty but holding up there)

Can’t wait for the warmth tomorrow!
