Spain-bound? Hop on the train.

Don Quixote. Tapas. Gaudi and Goya. Spain has left its indelible mark on the senses of our world. From Literature and architecture to artful cuisine and canvas masters, the country has explored creativity and beholden explorers to seek brave new worlds. From the Basque country to Catalonia and the Costa del Sol, through Seville, Granada, Cordoba and of course Madrid, the cities of Spain are anything but plain – even when it rains.

Here’s One Traveler’s Culture Shock experience:

When I was a college student, I made multiple trips to Europe and always took advantage of a RailPass. My Grandmother was living on the island of Mallorca at the time, so after visiting relatives in Paris I decided to board a train for Spain to visit her. The journey went well until I got into Spain and became hungry. This was pre-Euro and before debit cards and I had no Spanish currency and the food service on board was only accepting French or Spanish currency, neither of which I had at this point. By the time that the train arrived in Barcelona I was starved so I rushed off the train and headed towards the nearest currency exchange at the station only to discover that it was closed for siesta (afternoon break) which had just started moments earlier. I learned from this experience to always pack food in advance…especially it going to a country that has a siesta as part of their culture!
