The train with the big nose brought us to Barcelona
|Supper in Placa Real in the Gothic quarter|
It is 11 AM on Friday in Barcelona. We left our hotel of the dependability of a stronger wifi signal at McDonalds. Our hotel signal last night was so sporadic - we could barely watch the FSU/VT game on our sling box. It was 1 AM here as the game started and we both dozed off - but saw the end of the game.
We had gone to a grocery store and bought cereal - milk - bananas for a light breakfast.
We can board our Costa Cruise ship anytime between 2 PM and 4 PM - we are about 2 miles from the Terminal D - where we depart.
The train from Valencia was very nice - it took about 3 hours. It hugged the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. We saw many pretty homes overlooking the sea. In some places there were summer camps of cabins and trailers. We did not see a lot of people along the coast. In some place the beaches were rocky - not many real sandy beaches like Florida.
The train had 10 cars - we were in the first car. The restaurant was in the last car. We had lunch there. The train had electrical outlets - but no wifi. We used some of our Spain data plan. The train was full - all 10 cars.
Near our there was a place that rented electric scooters and bikes. There was quite an array of sturdy looking scooters.
Internet is expensive on the ship - so my posts will be smaller and less frequent. I have used 560 MB of my 1000 MB that I bought on Spanish cell phone. the phone will not work now until we come back to Barcelona in a week. I guess you could say we are roughing it then without data on the ship. Lulu and I will have to talk :-)
Last night we had supper at Place Real - the picture of us was taken there.
