Santiago de Compostela to Madrid, Spain   October 30, 2022

I had my usual breakfast and along the way-

There was a time change in the night so I was concerned that my bus departure might be affected but it wasn’t and we were pulling out of Santiago at 10:45.  We headed northwest to A Coruña, a city on the coast then southeast towards Madrid. It was weird to be driving past places I had walked through not so long ago.  Galicia is rolling hills and lots of trees-

Astorga and the prairie-

After stopping at two different bus stations in Madrid, we arrived at the airport at 9 PM sharp. What a huge place!  I walked a lot until I found the bus to take me to terminal one which was at least a 10 minute drive.  I’m sitting with a couple from Chile who are also waiting for a morning flight. I leave for Malta at 6:25 so it didn’t make much sense for me to get a hotel room for six hours and lie awake hoping not to miss my alarm. I’m not sure if I’m going to get any sleep here either but I am certainly not alone.  It’s a popular place to spend the night!

I had a Whopper at Burger King and paid by putting my money in a machine-

I’m not sure if that started because of Covid or to prevent the staff from stealing.  

I’m looking forward to Malta!
