Much of my free time last week was spent trying to decide where to go for the final trip on my Eurail Pass before its expiration date on the 25th of October. This process consisted mostly of looking intently at a map while not making any decisions.
Friday, without any planning other than a hastily booked hostel reservation, I took the Metro to the railway station in Madrid and hopped on the high-speed train to Sevilla in the south of Spain. I settled into the all-too-familiar rhythmic hum of train hurling toward a place I only know as letters on a ticket. (Perhaps it was just the excitement and buzz of being back on a train, but the world outside the window seemed to hum along while spinning past.)
The following are some of the things and moments that caught my eye during my journey.
