Bullet Train to Barcelona!

Posted on June 23, 2015. Filed under: Just Fun, Spain | Tags: , , , , , , , |

We sprung for first class from Madrid to Barcelona on the high-speed AVEBullettrainbarcelona

train.  For the extra $20 or so we had a little plusher seats and our own electrical outlets to recharge our devices.  Since we don’t fly first class it seemed like an affordable treat.  We seemed to fly to Barcelona from Madrid, making the trip in about 2.5 hours at right near 200 mph!  It was truly exhilarating to watch the Spanish countryside whizzing by.  It was a much different view than we had just had of the big city.

When we arrived and settled into our apartment we headed out for tapas.  We were quick to discover Barcelona is very different than Madrid.  It was the end of October and the place was jammed packed with tourists.  This was a little overwhelming to us.  We purposely travel off-season or almost off-season to try to avoid the crowds.  I wonder if Barcelona ever really has such a time.
