Some vacation memories before my next one

The Hostal Maestre is also recommended, it’s a little further from the city center, but that gives ample opportunity to get lost in the maze of streets. It’s also right around the corner from a proper hostel which has cheap internet access. Enjoy!

I would recommend doing that rather than trying to figure out the online system. There was a train that left at night and was supposed to arrive the next morning at 7AM. It actually ended up arriving four hours late due to major rain, but it worked out just fine as it put my in Cordoba at a perfect time to look for my next hotel. The AVE takes 5 hours, but I figured it […]
