I slept in Cahors hostel last night. The hostel was really nice with antique wooden floors but I had to leave early in the morning to get back to Toulouse. The hostel’s dormitory room had nobody but me. Thanks to manager, because I would make too much noise which would make the others not to keep asleep.
Back to Toulouse, I had about an hour to connecting train. I walked very fast with carrying my bag. I could not look around a lot but I realised that this city was ‘red brick’ city. And I couldn’t find anything about French hi-tech. Maybe that’s because I just looked around in old town.
I got back to train station and took a train which would stop at Foix. The route was not really scenic. Not only that, I asked assistants in Toulouse before get on the train, they said there would be a bus but I couldn’t find connecting bus so I had to wait more than two hours. I just walked into the small town to have a lunch but restaurants were all closed until midday. I couldn’t have my lunch but a big baguette.
The bus arrived at border line and I waited Spanish train about two more hours. I gave a call to parents. Tomorrow is Chuseok so had to phone them. Finally I arrived at Barcelona in the evening. The train was running on Metro railway so I got off at the very central area not main station.
I found a hotel helped by tourist office. I strolled for more than four hours at Barcelona’s night streets and had a great Tapas, and found a hostel to stay for tomorrow. I’ll change my accomodation tomorrow.
