We went for a visit with mom and dad
I spent 11 days up in Canada to visit with family.
I was thrilled to meet my great nephew Oliver, son of Amanda Baulk
Xavier, Riley, Tyson
We spent our 2 evening meals in quaint little restaurants a short walk from our hotel. The first one did not take credit cards, so Caitlyn ran back to the hotel to get some cash. Delicious octopus and pork strips.
We arrived at 10 in the morning, so we took a cab to our hotel. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast, and took a little nap before heading out to see the city.
We stopped at the 91 year old glove shop that is only 4 feet wide.
We met up with Jose who walked us down to the train, and moved us a couple times, until we were all settled in to a 4 bed sleeping compartment. We had to keep the door open as such a small room, I could not sleep. The train swayed a lot the whole 10 hour ride.
We got to the train early to board for the 4 hour ride to Madrid, with a two hour layover and then an over night train to Portugal. The train had problems so we were towed back to Seville, put on a later train to Madrid. Unfortunately we missed our connecting train, and had to spend the night in a hotel close to the train station. Since the train company was responsible, they paid for the hotel for the night. Jose was very nice and helpful, and told us we could catch the train the following evening. We were hungry so we ate pizza at midnight.
