It rained again last night – so it was dark and eerie when we left Santiago de Compostela this morning. Our 4 hour train to Medina (where we would catch our connection to Salamanca) turned into a 5 1/2 ride making us miss our connection. The ticket master was as pleasant as could be and asked us to wait. 5 minutes later taxi showed up and drove us to Salamanca – a one hour drive at no charge. We were shocked – thought we’d just catch the next train!
We are now unpacked in our comfy apartment – so excited to see our jeans, clogs and a extra shirt! After wearing the same 2 outfits for the past 40 days we got excited to see just another change of clothes.
After 5 months we are looking forward to not living out of a backpack for the next 3 months. Well… not exactly 3 full months – we’ll be exploring Portugal and other parts of Spain on the weekends.
