Another overnight train ride, this time arriving in Barcelona. Relativly uneventful, however we did get stuck on a carriage with a group of 40 Parisean students.
Along the way we met two other backpackers, one who is living in Toronto and the other in Holland, both friends originally from Iran. We joined forces making our way to the hostel together followed by a little sightseeing in the evening. The night ended with the four of us enjoying Paella and Sangria at this great restaraunt off La Rambla (one of the main strips of Barcelona).
Our hostel is in the gothic area, not far from the Picasso Museum, Catedral Barcelona and a number of other attractions. The area is a maze of alleys running between old stone buildings and little churches. very good for exploring!
