Taking a Ride from a Stranger and Travelling for Cheap
For this experience, I did what our parents always told us not to do: take a ride from a stranger. We needed to go down to the south of Spain and we didn’t want to fly so we were looking at alternatives.
The cheapest option was ride sharing and something I had never done before. We booked a ride and got picked up in downtown Barcelona. In reality, the whole thing is pretty safe but there’s still this image of how ride sharing can be dangerous.
It was 10 hour drive down to Seville which we did without any major breaks (our driver was incredible!). We got a chance to sleep and arrived rested to Seville, not that it matter that much after realizing how hot Seville is during the summer. Overall, it was a fun and practical experience.
