The Spanish high-speed train system is both maddeningly frustrating and pleasantly classy.
Fail: Reserving a seat
When the online reservation system does not allow you to reserve seats for ANY train at ANY time.
Sexy train attendants. Enough said.
Epic fail: Buying tickets
When your „please take a number“ ticket is #589 and they are only on #234. And there are 10 ticket windows, but only 3 are open, even though it’s 11:00 on a Wednesday.
Epic win: Boarding experience
When you enter a perfectly air conditioned train car and the Lord of the Rings soundtrack is playing. Next stop, Mordor!
