Considering it’s my birthday, not much happening today... we took the bus all day from Madrid to Barcelona – an 8 hour bus ride. At least we had air-conditioning on this one.
Spain’s interesting to drive through – a lot of giant bull outlines/placards along the highway, and a lot of varying landscapes – great big fields followed by deep valleys and tons of sandy brown... parts kind of look like driving through Nevada...?
There was one point it looked like the wind turbines had just invaded – there was honestly over 100 in a small area... I have never seen that many in one spot. It was kind of mesmerizing/horrifying haha.
Our hostel in Barcelona is a little... odd? Thankfully we got there the same time as two guys who were picking up their luggage and had the passcode because we then had to wait about 20min for the staff/receptionist to show up... even for a laid-back hostel, that is unacceptable.
We got changed and headed out in search of a restaurant... had to go out for my birthday of course. We gave up looking in our neighbourhood and headed downtown. After a very long hunt, we found a nice place that wasn’t crazy expensive haha. Lovely way to end the night!
