You Simply Roll With It

Yes. That is definitley key. If you know me then you know I plan, a lot (um...make that a whole lot), and this trip has instilled (like most of my travels have) to simply chillout and go with the flow. Well, I´ve become quite use to the idea. So much so, that while I wanted and ¨needed¨ to book my tickets and accommodations for Barcelona (to which I am heading later today) last night, it simply wasn´t happening. Not only did the last minute planning lead to skyrocketed prieces for flights, the train and bus options weren´t any better. Oops. With that said, who needs to book a hostel when I´m not even sure when I´ll get into town. Instead...I went straight to bed. Nice.
As of this morning, after a nice chat with folks at breakfast, I got a hostel recommendation for Barcelona (and plans for Sunday - head anywhere to watch the Real Madrid and BCN footbol match = )...AND make reservations. They didn´t have any availabilities for tonight so I´m going to take the overnight bus. Yup, if Madrid´s Bus Station is like most I´ve been to in Spain, I can easily get tickets 30 minutes before my departure. Hopefully...because it´s a bit drizzly outside and I´m not in any rush to head outdoors just yet. Yellow mellow (and seriously, that´s so uncanny and I´m loving it).
However, since I do have a full day left in Madrid, I´ll eventually catch a couple more sights in town, maybe sit in that cool cafe I came across the other day, maybe even have a sit-down meal somewhere, upload some pictures, read and even catch a film (in Spanish perhaps) before my departure. Oh, and, yes, I guess I´ll have another Thanksgiving meal in town too because in the mist of all this traveling I´ve mixed up my days. Happens.
