Solo backpacking in Europe before Grad School takes over my life

Barcelona and Beyond

Survived my first overnight train

I spent some of yesterday hanging around Madrid, and I actually wish I maybe had one more day there.  I don’t think I missed too much, but I could have hung out in the park some more.  I caught my overnight train, and since I was cheap, I shared a big car of reclining seats with maybe 12-15 people.  I am safely in Paris, and I have already seen the catacombs and the Notre Dame.  Both were cool, but I need to go back to Notre Dame to go up in the tower tomorrow.  I also decided to spend tomorrow night in Paris as well because I felt I was going to rush it.  Gotta go now.  I hate these French keyboards.

  4. I thought Notre Dame was in Indiana?
    Stay safe and have fun, Chris. I’m sure after a few days you’ll hate more than just French keyboards.

  5. Loots, sorry but I did not get a chance to shop. Maybe next time.

    Pops, I always live by the gospel of Joe Dirt.

    Eddie, You bet!

    Brian, hah they weren’t that bad at least to me (maybe because I don’t look american).
