Join us we travel travel from Porto to Madrid with a series of bus rides (starting with Porto to Vigo with an overnight stay) in this Spain travel vlog. Firstly we kick things off with an apartment tour in Porto. The place was great in many regards as it had nice showers with good water pressure, a big living room, a fully equipped kitchen and cool artwork; however, the lack of central heating and energy efficiency meant we were really cold especially in the mornings and nights. It would have been a great property in the spring/summer/fall but definitely not winter:

Our first leg of the journey was to take a 2.5 hour bus from Porto to Vigo, Spain to stay overnight at a hotel. The following morning we woke up early to take an eight and a half bus ride from Vigo to Madrid which was a tiring day.

Porto to Madrid Bus Ride | Spain Travel Vlog Video Transcript:

Today is another travel day and actually it is going to be two back to back travel days because someone underestimated distances.

Tell us what happened. Going from Porto to Madrid yes is not an easy option there is sometimes overnight buses that are direct and sometimes there is day buses but on the day we have to leave there isn’t an option that works for us. Basically what we’re doing is we are heading north from Porto to Vigo in Spain. Not to sightsee just to stay overnight in a hotel. Then the following morning we’re going to wake up and then we’re going to take a direct bus to Madrid in the morning.

That allows us not to travel at night and it also allows us to kind of break up the trip a little bit. But before we do that we’ll give you a tour of our apartment here in Porto. Yes our place in Porto let’s show our apartment here.

That is the apartment tour. That is where we stayed. That is it. So now what we’ve got to do is we’re going to go find a taxi, get to the bus station and we have a short day trip basically up to Vigo. To España. And then we’re going to chill. But yeah bye bye Portugal, Hello Spain.

And a much needed update. Oh my gosh we made it to Vigo. So did we talk about the price for our tickets?

We paid 12 Euros per person booked our tickets online and it was 2.5 hour bus ride. We stopped in the city of Braga halfway along the way. And yeah it was a pretty quick trip. Now we’re all checked in at our hotel. We took a taxi to the hotel. There was no way we were walking. Yeah. That was only 5 Euros. And we gained an hour by switching into Spain.

Now we’re just trying to find a restaurant in our neighborhood. We’re going to go out for dinner and then maybe have a little walk and call it a night. Tomorrow is the long day. Tomorrow eight thirty in the morning we are catching another bus to Madrid.

Good morning guys.

We haven’t been up this early in a while. It has been a little while. Um we woke up at like 5:30. The plan is now is we need to go and catch a cab to get to the bus station. I think it is the same bus station.

If yesterday was a short ride the bus ride today is anything but. We have something close to an eight hour bus ride to Madrid.

We’ve arrived at long last. That was a very long bus trip. It must have been like something close to 8 hours in total. Yeah, we’re all just really tired and we have like 2 hours to kill before our AirBNB is going to be available so we’ve just found a food court here. I forgot to tell you how much the bus ticket was. How much was it?

It was 47 Euros per person. Not cheap but it was a long ride. It wasn’t cheap but it was comfortable enough and we’re just going to kill some time and then check into our airbnb.

Made it to Madrid. All checked in to our apartment. Yes. We are tired. We are very tired. We’ll see you in the next video.

    Sam and Audrey are travel veterans. But one must applaud the energy of Sam's parents. They are awesome.

    P.S.-I have a feeling next time Audrey is going to make the travel day plans. One day there will be no such T shirt for Audrey because they will have visited everywhere 😛

    Can't go wrong with chocolate and butter combo in that croissant. Thumbs up for the all too brief dance moves during the AirBnb tour.

    good video! I think you have potential to be a HUGE YouTuber and make so much money that this becomes your permanent job! It's just My spouse and i pointed out that your channel isn't growing very fast, which is holding you again! If your videos acquired some more views, they'd do so much better in the YouTube algorithm. My MAIN channel has been having ton of success because I bought a few dollar guide on the way to get an unlimited amount of views on any video. Literally, I just started and one of my videos already has almost 7, 000 views and will have 20, 000 VIEWS by the end of the week, which is giving me a HUGE boost in the YouTube search and algorithm because my subscriber count goes up 40 subscribers every day now. I understand it sounds like an ad lol but it could really explode your channel. I can't post links in comments, so you'll have to find the link to the guide in the MAIN channel banner. My main channel is featured on this channel right now that I'm using to comment. The link will be in the bottom right corner of the main channel banner. Hope this helps ya out a little down the road: )

    it helps get your channel rolling so give it a look 🙂
