Home 4 xmas

Going home for Christmas in Spain: in this case, Granada-Madrid, about 450 kms, roughly 5hrs by bus.

It's one of the busier coach routes in Spain, and the coaches fill up even more during fiestas, such as Christmas or the Holy Week. Half the way, the coach(es) usually stop(s) at Casa Marcos, a motel and restaurant, located in a small town called Almuradiel, province of Ciudad Real (Castilla-La Mancha). It's almost exactly half the way between Granada and Madrid.

Most of the times it's only one coach having its 30-mins break. However, the day before Christmas Eve, there were many.

Recently those coaches stop at another inn too: more quiet, sleek, double as expensive. Self-service. However, in Casa Marcos you are served by middle-aged bartenders, dressed in white shirts and black bow ties.
