Oh man, today has been rough!!
I left St. Marcan this morning at 9:15 by car, arrived in Pontorson and left on a train for Caen at 9:55. From Caen I took another train to Paris then the metro to the bus station to take a bus 1.5 hours to the airport to take a plane to Madrid. Then I took the Madrid subway to the station closest to my hostel and finally got to the hostel at about 12:15 AM. Literally, 14 hours of travelling. I am EXHAUSTED!!!
Madrid is not nearly as scary as everyone had made it out ot be . I was really nervous getting in so late because I had heard all of these horror stories about people getting mugged and "don't take the taxis", "carry pepper spray" all this garbage. I felt so safe, never was approached by anyone. There were kids riding he subways by themselves from the airport just like me (but actual kids, like 12 years old). The hostel I'm staying at is sooo cool. It´s really modern and has a bar and restaurant inside it as well as its own internet cafe. Its also in a really cute authentic spanish building and has a little courtyard in the center and everything.
Well its late so, I´m going to bed... but tomorrow will be jam packed I´m sure.
