      Public Transit Excitation

      July 20, 2023 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 72 °F

      The bad news: I had a 15 minute connection between trains and a late arrival. The great news?

      My 1st train of the day's late arrival was ameliorated by good fortune in that I bought the 2nd ticket at the same time, in person, and Renfe ( the train co ) therefore held train #2 to allow a smooth connection! Yes! Winning!
      Internet purchase would have been 2 tickets...and a sad overnight stay in Vitoria for me.

      Of course, train 2 was thus late arriving to San Sebastian (where I hoped to grab a snack and a beverage). This is not great news as it means I missed the Euskotren ( metro ) that I planned to grab to reach Hendaia, France with plenty of time to catch another train/metro to my destination (Biarritz).

      The good news?
      I am a good walker. I made the next metro that might take 40 min to reach the station in Hendaia and the last train to Biarritz leaves in 52 minutes. Or...tomorrow

      If all goes swimmingly there is a good chance that I'll make it!

      People ask me: "Why trains? Just fly!"
      Well.... About 20% of the worldwide corporations are responsible for more than 90% of all emissions. Airlines are heavily represented in that 20%. And I like lookin out the window.

      But.... Does it help? I don't know.
