Where I stayed
Nikita spent 10.00 Aussie dollars on a bottle of water and yoghurt, and caitlin enjoyed a foccaccia and hot chocolate. Our boarding was delayed half hour (once again, bearable) and once the plane started to taxi (another half hour after boarding) we pushed away suspicions after waiting another half hour when we finally took off.
5 hours later, we arrived in beautiful madrid. We were excited to finally be at our destination so we could sleep properly after 3 days of short and interrupted plane sleep. At the time we arrived to collect our luggage, we became worried as only few people were at the baggage collection belt - and our bags hadn't arrived yet
Turns out there is only one flight from helsinki to madrid a day (FUCK!) and we can look forward to it taking anywhere up to 4days to finally arrive.
So - we left the airport (practically in tears) and headed to our hotel.
It is currently 2pm local time in Madrid, and we are praying to god that it is put on our next flight (so we have shoes and bathroom toiletries). GOD HELP US if it hasn't arrived by the time we leave madrid!
On a good note - clothing and shoes are surprisingly cheap in spain so Nikita was able to buy shoes (only had slippers!) today and caitlin clothes (only had tracksuit pants!).
please check out our photos! and our next blog on our current stay in MADRID :)
