David goes to Madrid

After six years of “Wirtschaftswochen” teaching in Switzerland, David is entitled to go to one of the foreign Swiss schools. As one of these is in Madrid, where Eva teaches, this was the perfect excuse to visit her and Miguel in Madrid, and to show Urs around! David and Urs had a really fun week and really enjoyed the lively Spanish young people – they enjoyed it too!

Of course, David did not fly to Madrid (for environmental reasons), but took the train (around 15 hours travel each way!). Despite threats that the French train strikes would not end in time, the whole journey went without a hitch, proving that the European high speed trains are on the right track, even if it took many hours to book the journey and it cost more than flying ;-( On the way back, David broke his journey in Barcelona, which was also very pleasant.
