Oasis Hostel Party Hostel in Málaga

Posted at:11 August, 2015 in Ambassador Blog

Aug 7 (cont’d) I caught the bus to Málaga and found a ‘Touristica Information’ lady who gave me a map… …and circled a small street in the old town of the city where Oasis Hostel Málaga was located.  She gave me an option of two buses from outside of the train station right next door from […]

Oasis Granada Hostel near the Alhambra

Aug 5 (cont’d) From Valencia I caught a train, a train and a bus to get to Granada… …It was about 7 hours of travel to get from place to place.  It is incredibly dry as transportation takes you further south and all I could think about was how much I would have enjoyed being on […]

Aug 3 (cont’d) In Madrid’s train station, there is a giant ticket office where you make your purchases… …There are about 15 desks in there.  I picked a number from each of the two number choice categories as I only had about 30 minutes to get on the 14:10 train.  I got A410 and B688.  When […]

Cat’s Hostel the best party hostel in Madrid!

Posted at:5 August, 2015 in Ambassador Blog

Aug 1 (cont’d) The landscape from Bilbao to Madrid is beautiful… …There are mountains that end up blending into wheat fields as the bus heads south.  I never know where I am on the bus so I can never pinpoint what area is pretty, other than the vague description between cities.  Then when I arrive in […]

Ganbara Hostel a Cheap Hostel in Bilbao

Posted at: in Ambassador Blog

July 30 (cont’d) I got off the train in Zaragoza and found a bus that would be leaving 45 minutes later for Bilbao… …Jackpot!  The man at the train station was right!  €19.30 for the bus ticket.  I had no idea what it was going to cost, and would have had no choice but to pay […]

Famous Hostels Ambassador: Backpacking Barcelona

Posted at:4 August, 2015 in Ambassador Blog

July 28 (cont’d) It is amazing how my ears pop every time the fast moving train I am on enters a tunnel… … That must be quite a pressure change when the air cannot escape freely as the locomotive cuts through the atmosphere inside of the tunnel. The train pulled into Barcelona Sants, which is the […]

Such a nice beach!

Best Hostel in Marseille Vertigo Vieux-Port Hostel

Posted at: in Ambassador Blog

July 25 Shower, breakfast, pack, check-out, decide on a train… …My choices were two trains that were each 2:35h to get from Nice to Marseilles.  One was at 12:24 that required a reservation and one was at 13:53 that did not.  I wanted the extra hour and a half in Marseilles, but decided to wait […]

Nice Diving

Posted at:27 July, 2015 in Ambassador Blog

About eight years have passed since I last tried scuba-diving.. …I do not possess a P.A.D.I. diving certificate, so chances to dive are very limited.  In fantastic Nice they have a company with instructors that take beginner time divers under the water with them.  In the Mediterranean!  Awesome.  Nice Diving is not just a clever […]

Villa Saint Exupery Hostel in Nice Old Town

Posted at: in Ambassador Blog

July 23 (cont’d) I arrived in Nice.  Nice is Nice (I am sure that is original)…. … It is a small city and it has that great small vibe.  I walked from the train station towards Villa Saint Exupery Hostel.  I was hungry so I was watching for prices of snacks on the way, but everything […]

The Catacombs of Paris

Posted at: in Ambassador Blog

I got up early and left St. Christoper’s Canal Hostel to head to the Catacombs of Paris… I did not know what to really expect, but I now can say that it is one of the best €9 spent in the entire tourism industry…. I had a flyer with me that said, ‘At the end […]
