After over 16 hours of travel, we arrived in Barcelona, Spain, Friday evening (9 hour time change) with minimal jet lag. It didn’t hit us until the next day when we traveled by train to the south. We took a local train to the Sants train station in Barcelona and then a Renife train for 2 hours to Benicarló; then a taxi to Peñíscola condo.
It was raining yesterday and a little cool. Despite our fatigue, we had to walk to the supermercado for food and drink; not so far with empty bags, but seemed forever with a heavy load. We stayed in and had a cold, snack dinner and watched some kind of sport on all Spanish TV. It seemed to be combo of basketball, soccer and hockey and called balomano. Very interesting.
No internet until we paid for it today; 5 Euro for 12 hours (use anytime). Not too bad. Today is sunnier, but breezy. The Mediterranean Sea is just about 2 blocks from our condo and really beautiful. Tomorrow, we plan to take the bus into Peñíscola proper and visit the famous castle (“El Cid” fame).
Still tired today and taking naps, but why not? I’ll try to add pictures after our visit to the castle. Hola de Espana.
