We looked at each other.
I said, "Should I call? Should we split a double room?'
She said 'Heck yeah!"
I called. 60 euros for a double smack dab next to the Gaudi Palace and Cathedral. 30 bucks each for a luxury room with no snoring, farting, coughing, mobile-phone-ringing pilgrims.
We took it
I am now lying in my snowy white bed with my plump white pillows, looking out my terrace door at a beautiful garden, listening to classical music. This is after my luxuriously long and hot spa shower.
It sure beats the municipal albergue.
So once again, I'm 5 euros over budget and if I eat out that will make it closer to 20 over.
But you know what?
I'm sooooo happy!
