First of all, I am writing this update from a train that has already reached at least 300km per hour, that’s scary or cool as hell!
Secondly, I have been laughing my ass off because my dad complains just about everything he can.
So far, he found the given earphones to be of very low quality which I agree with.
I offered him my iPod set but he refused to use it.
He has been offered wet towels a number of times already so he’s annoyed from that too LOL!
Has been complaining and mumbling about a couple of guys that have been talking non stop on their mobile phones saying these guys brought their damn work to the train haha!
(He also travels talking non stop but he hasn’t realized that yet.)
As my dad has very high levels of stress and anxiety, he just can’t stand still either.
Always has to be doing something
He flicks the newspaper, reads a sentence, then keeps a magazine in the front seat wire net, fixes his baseball hat, looks in the front, at the back, stares at the people crossing the wagon, then opens up a zipper in his jacket.
Fixes something, opens up his backpack, gets nothing out, zip it closed again, check out if our lugagge is still in place and he’s like that, every time we travel.
So far right now, we have an hour traveling and he has been reading the newspaper while being quiet (this is not very common).
Occasionally, he will pinch me in my arm so I record “viñedos”, landscapes and anything he might find worth recording outside through the window.
Until this point, I already have got used to this and it’s not that I really like it or dislike it, I am treasuring these moments as they happen instead!
I am so happy to be right here, I have this weird feeling of belonging right where I am.
It is a little bit undescriptible by words.
I haven’t told you anything about where I come from or where am I headed to yet (in my marketing endeavours) but I will attempt do so as time and posts pass by.
It’s not that I have an interesting life, I just want you to get to know me so we have that sort of virtual friendship going on.
Just to give you a little tip of the iceberg, my grandmother Anastasia (RIP) was an amazing Spanish lady.
She used to live in a very small place called “Pipaona de Ocón” in La Rioja, Spain.
She was my last grand mother and family member to pass away.
She did so last year so I’m still a little bit confused about it.
She met my grandfather Anastasio (RIP) in Spain while my grandfather was studying here, many years ago.
Being in Spain for the first time in my life has opened a few strange thoughts in me.
I really never even thought I’d like Spain so much.
By law, we have rights up to 5 generations to acquire the spanish double nationality and the mexican government allows mexicans to have a double nationality as well.
That means that even if I never did anything about it, even my grand children are entitled to have the double nationality if they were born outside of Spain.
Only time will tell.
Right now there’s an audio announcement that we’re arriving at Zaragoza and that we should remain on the train.
I don’t have a clue of how many stops are we going to have before arriving to Barcelona but so far the train has been very pleasant and comfortable!
Yep, so we stopped at Zaragoza, my dad just rushed to walk I don’t know where.
He’s going crazy about the guy speaking on the cell phone. LOL
I told you he can’t stand still for very long, didn’t I?
We finally started moving again, actually it was a very brief stop.
The Renfe tickets we bought are on the middle class which is “Preferente“.
And they were 176,50 euros each, not particularly cheap I guess.
I wanted to work with video editing but apparently there are no power outlets here and I just have enough power for an hour or so.
Let’s call this post a wrap right here as I don’t want to bore anyone.
My conclusion on traveling on the Renfe is that it may not be the cheapest thing but it is incredibly comfortable, the staff is super friendly and boy this thing can move fast!
Until next time!
PS. If you made it here, then I have to congratulate you!
I have a lot of pictures and videos to put in here but it is literally impossible for me to do so right now.
I can’t even explain why.
If you care to watch the pictures or the videos, just make sure to come back, I’m not a good photographer but at least you will get to know me a little bit better.
Take care and talk soon!
