‘High Speed Trains are Cool!’, or three hours on RENFE’s AVE from Barcelona-Sants to Madrid. You wander into the station run your luggage through the detector and then straight onboard.

Then it’s a smooth fast ride on the rails all the way to Madrid, as you watch the climate and the landscape change, as the trip meter unwinds and the speedo clocks 300 kmph.

Side note. You’d think a country as big as Australia would ‘get’ high speed rail, but nope…

Anyway, once we get to Madrid, it’s the Metro again to my cousin Duncan’s place where we’re staying for the next couple of days. He promises flamenco…
