This morning we decided to do the free walking tour in Barcelona. We met a few Canadians and a Kiwi in our hostel that were also heading to the tour, so we all went together. The walking tour of Barcelona wasn’t as good as the Amsterdam or Berlin ones, but we’re not sure if that’s […]Read More Day 26. Hola Barcelona!
All of our trains to Barcelona were on schedule. We arrived at our last stop in France at 1:00am, where we had a 7 hour layover until our train to Spain the next morning. We planned to slum it out in the train station and get as much sleep as we could. However…we were pleasantly […]Read More Day 25. Kicked out the train station!

We planned to take the 5:30pm train to Barcelona this evening, so we had to be back in Nice in time for that. As usual I had chocolate croissants for breakfast. The weather has been […]Read More Day 24. Track-side at the Monaco Races!

The new hostel is right by the beach, Old Town and the Castel…if you’re familiar with Nice at all. We dropped off our things and wandered […]Read More Day 22. Sunburnt in France.
Today we were planning on taking the boat across to an island about 20 minutes from Venice, but unfortunately our plans had to change. We wanted to spend the day on the island then get a train from Italy to France throughout the night. However, there is a huge train strike in Italy, so that […]Read More Day 21. Travel Day to France!
To get to Venice, the train journey was around 15 hours. That’s why we decided to do it overnight, which worked out pretty well and saved us paying for a night accomodation! We were in a six seater cabin and when we boarded there was only three of us in our section. So we all […]Read More Day 20. Gondala Rides in Venice.
