Day 7 – A train to Spain

Posted: September 27, 2014 in Travel

We left Paris behind in street lit beauty as we boarded the early TgV high speed train to Barcelona. Left exactly on time as usual with trains. Station security checking certainly appears lax compared to airports – at both ends. It was a comfortable ride and the 6.5 hrs passed at a reasonable rate. Barcelona Sants is certainly a busy station and we sampled our first taste of Spain. A beer naturally. We would be spending the weekend with friends of the Della clan, the very gracious Josef and Magda. Unfortunately we could not be picked up until another 4 hrs and then a 90 minute drive to Les Borges Blanques where they live north of Barcelona. However all settled in by 8 pm and after a late meal it was time for some sleep. It is a lovely house constructed mainly of Australian products – bricks, jarrah wood etc – to reflect the amount of business (tiles) Josef does with Australia. A relaxed weekend exploring the local countryside with expert tour guides awaits
