My luggage and snacks - waiting patiently
The bus arrives!
We hit the road and drove all night (3 drivers for the bus took turns).
I was lucky enough to have an entire row to myself, so I was able to sleep for 7 hours. I slept for all but about 1/2 hour of France...
Here's where I slept
- my hips were a bit sore in the morning
after sleeping w/ my legs across the aisle
I got to see lots of Spain! A beautiful country. Maybe I should move here for a while...
Representative scenery from the northeast
The first sign for Madrid!! How exciting!
Oh, you mean there's still 200+ km to go?
And finally, at 6pm we arrive at the hotel. Took a little longer than the expected 17 hours. Our 22 hour total included stops for breakfast and lunch, plus some road construction along the way.
The view from my hotel room window. Madrid is a pretty city!
Tomorrow, if all goes well, I'm on a plane that departs at 11am. Such a nice feeling to know that I'm headed home....
