Paris, Barcelona, and Madrid trip

Hi guys!

So excited I’ll meet madame Eiffel and monsieur Gaudi soon! Yeah.. 30 hours to come!

I wanted to share you my trip itinerary:

2 days – Paris

I departed from Rennes by covoiturage, it’s a carpooling system in France (and maybe in other countries) which is very beneficial both for the driver and passengers. The driver can save money from their gasoline and car costs, and we as passenger can get cheap ride! I decided to use covoiturage because this TGV price is driving me crazy!! I have browsed some carpooling website.. the most reliable one is: www.covoiturage.fr

I thought we need to pay the driver directly, but apparently covoiturage.fr is acting as intermediate between us. We need to pay by credit/ carte bleue card first when we booked the trip. Eventhough it’s more expensive, because they charged service fee around 10% from the amount that charged to you, but it’s ok because unlike other sites, they have rating system for the driver, so you know the credibilities of the driver. You wouldn’t want an annoying or drunker person to drive the car, right?

the driver will deliver me to Massy RER station, which quite far from Paris city centre. The cost for RER trip to city centre is around 3.2 Eur. we’ll go around Paris.. of course La tour d’Eiffel, champs-elysees, Arc d’triomphe, musee Louvre, chateau de Versailles, and many more! J’adore!

Tips: all my friend told me to be careful in Paris. Don’t get enchanted too much, too excited, too drunk, or too in love! Paris is very dangerous because it has many foreigners, which in current hard economy situations they might unemployed..

2 daya – Barcelona

La ramblasss! Yihaaa.. I can’t wait to visit this no 1 beautiful city in the whole world! Thanks to monsieur Gaudi who created the famous Sagrada Familia!

I found some tourist maps on the net, or simply just follow barcelona hop on hop off open bus map (http://www.barcelonabusturistic.cat/web/guest).

They said everything can be reached by metro, and tourist can buy a tourist pass in Barcelona airport terminal 2, for 13 euro (2 days unlimited), quite cheap! Or you can buy 10 tickets costs 9 euro. But, i’ll skip the hassle (in case i need more ticket) by buying a tourist pass instead.

For a fashion lover, which is all girrrllsss.. there’s MANGO outlet in Barcelona, they sold even cheaper MNG stuffs! You know that you can get great bargain of ZARA and MNG stuffs in Spain, so why don’t give a shot to visit the outlet 😉

Here’s the address:

Carrer de Girona, 37  08010 Barcelona, Spanyol
934 12 29 35

From Barcelona, I’ll go to Madrid by bus, because the train is soooo expensive! the most reliable bus named ALSA, you can see the bus routes, schedule, and even buy the ticket online. Hence, you need Spanish credit card or a Paypal account. I made a paypal account just to buy this bus ticket! Hopefully it’s worth the sacrifices 🙂

I bought a ticket for 34 Eur each, with 2 Eur administration fee, departed at 11.50 PM and arrived in Madrid at 7.50 AM, total journey is 7h 50m.

2 days – Madrid

Honestly I don’t really know what a must visit place in Madrid, but some people like Madrid more than Barcelona. I’ll prove it and let you know!

Ciao Amigos!
