Solo backpacking in Europe before Grad School takes over my life

Barcelona and Beyond

Last post from abroad

I arrived in Barcelona this morning and I´m checked into my hostel.  The night train was alright, but I was on the top bunk in a 4 bed cauchette.  I had heard it gets hot in the top bunk because of the closed space and the heat rising.  Hot doesn´t even describe it.  I woke up at 4 am sweating and unable to stand the heat.  I hung out in the hallway where it was cooler for about 45 minutes and then I was finally tired enough to brave the furnace again.  I think somehow the heat got turned on also, which made things worse.  I survived though and actually got decent sleep aside from those 45 minutes. 

I will probably go to this free park in a little bit today, but mostly I´m going to relax and prepare for teh flight tomorrow.  See everyone soon!

  1. safe journey back! you didn’t miss too much in Nice. it’s really pretty, but the beach is way too rocky to lie out or swim in. and most of it is a tourist trap. good food and dessert though.
