Where I stayed
The next day I just wandered around Barcelona. I ended back up at the hostal a couple hours before I needed to catch my bus so I jumped on-line for awhile. Apparently that "while" was longer than I thought because before I knew it, it was (slightly passed) time to go. So, I rushed to get my luggage and a taxi and worried about being late all the way to the bus station. I mentioned to the taxi driver that I was a little late, and I he really took it to heart--I think he may have ran a red light! You see, we were sitting nice and legally at a red light. I noticed that the green walk sign turned red, and the next thing I knew, we were moving
Well, I made it to the bus station with about 10 minutes until my bus was suppose to leave. After reading some signs that gave me WRONG information, I went to the information desk (5 minutes and counting) and they told me the right information--and luckily my platform was literally right outside the door. *Phew!* Okay, so I threw my luggage into the bottom of the bus and stood in line to get on. While waiting, I heard another lady tell the driver that she was going to Castellon (where I was going), and he told her that she needed to put her luggage on the other side of the bus. Wonderful. So, I went to get my stuff out from under the the bus to take it to the other side. Not a good idea. The driver saw me and, I guess, thought I was stealing it. Fabulous. So, I went up and explained that I was going to Castellon. "You're going to Castellon?" was his response. "Yes," I said. "Put your bags on the other side." Duh. That's what I was doing. Goodness. At least I know they watch out for people stealing bags out of the bottom of buses!
So, after that rush of making it on time and being half-accused of being a thief, I was relieved to be calmly sitting on my bus on my 4 hour ride down south.
