Night Train to the Beach

The backtracking continues…I am headed back to Barcelona, a city I feel very comfortable in. I know my way around and I need a day or two in a place like this, to figure out my next move…what better place than the beach? Yes, it will be crowded and hot but I’m up for 48 hours of it. I’ll travel by night train from Madrid this evening, get to Barcelona about 8 am, check into a fairly new hostel near Las Ramblas, then take in some sun and plan my next move…I might head to Girona for a day, possibly make a daytime stop in Nice or Monaco, then push on to Italia…I will probably take advantage of the train pass and use another night train or two along the way, it saves time (less planning on trying to find accommodations) and saves money too.
