Don't ask. But do I want Barcelona Nord or Barcelona Sants bus station?
depends where yr going to
and then the bus to barcelona. i hate flying.
and then heading to barcelona on wed/thurs :)
There are no direct trains between Barcelona & Marseille. You have to change in Narbonne.
Might be worth looking into?
spain has real pretty countryside too
i'll get the night bus from marseille anyway, it's cool.
Get a train!
don't tell me that! it'll be FINE.
it wont make a dent on the cash you'll be putting down.
beach resort. I slept on the beach. Probably should avoid those kind of shenanigans.
it's because i don't like flying.
long distance train journeys are a fun way of travelling . planes are a joyless way of getting you from a to b in the smallest amount of time.
it's sort of making the travelling a part of the holiday too, i'm excited about seeing parts of france/spain i wouldn't see from a plane.
I'm struggling to think of anything that makes a coach good. My worst coach trip was 13 hours through Egypt, where the door wasn't fitting properly so freezing night air ran through and froze your ankles and feet. Or maybe it was that minibus where we spent four hours going to Abu Simbal with no circulation running through our legs thanks to the lack of leg room.
which means i wake up at 4am a lot of the time. (cue: "oh em gee pony, what ELSE is there about you?!?!?!?!?!?!")
i SO want to hitch. but it's me on my own, a night bus through two foreign countries will probably give me enough excitement on its own.
