After a raucous night out in Madrid that involved a few buckets of San Miguel, we were up far too early and on our way to Atocha station to board the train to Valencia. For over SIX HOURS the train twisted, turned and chugged its way to the coast; we’d made the decision to book the cheap train on the way there, so our train stopped at every. single. small. town. along. the way.
