After much careful planning, organising etc. we arrived at the train station in Barcelona just in time to see the train leave... without us. Let's just say it was jetlag, but I got the time completely wrong. After a quick panic attack, I went up to the ticket counter explained the situation - $500nz for new tickets! I must have looked pretty panicked, because the kind man took pity and said - don't worry I'll do it for no cost. I burst into tears! Jetlag again. These Barcelonans are the most lovely people!
Anyway, after 7 hours on the train we arrived in La Manga at 2am, a couple hours later than we had planned, but no worse off.
We're an ordinary family of 5 dreaming, planning and now beginning our adventure around the Mediterranean (and further afield), having an awesome time! Look out for our boat and come and say hi.
