On July 2, 2010, Ivan, Lil Dave and I checked out of Citadines. We put our backpacks in the luggage storage area.
We walked to the city centre. It was a sunny day out. We got sandwiches from the grocery store.
We jumped on the Le Petit Train de Montpellier, which is a tram tour. It took us around Montpellier passing by sights like the Arc de Triomphe, Musee Fabre, Saint Anne and the Palais de Justice.
The tour was pretty good.
We bought food at Monoprix for our upcoming train ride. We walked back to the hotel and grabbed our backpacks.
We got the tram to the train station. We left Montpellier headed to Barcelona, Spain at 3:09 pm. It was a long train ride. At first, we were seated together. But, then a guy had a ticket for where Ivan was sitting. So, Ivan had to move to a seat in the row across from my seat. I watched 2 episodes of Glee and an episode of V. Our passports were checked twice. I guess the first time was Customs and the second time was the Police. We arrived at 8:20 pm. It was slightly delayed since they checked passports.
Ivan hadn’t booked a hotel or hostel. So, we starting searching for a cafe with free wi-fi. We found a restaurant called Sandwich & Friends. We each had a tasty salad there. We used the internet. Ivan booked a hotel for 4 nights.
We got a taxi to the hotel. Ivan checked us in to Hotel U232. It’s a great hotel that has modern decor.
Ivan, Lil Dave and I used the internet.
We went out around 10:30 pm for dinner. In Spain, the people eat dinner late starting at 8 pm or later. We found a tapas place nearby. Ivan and I each had a glass of Rose. Lil Dave had fried banana croquettes. Ivan and I shared fish in a pastry and potato bravas.
We walked around the city to get some exercise. Then, we headed back to get some rest.
