Here. I’d been vaguely considering, because flying like a bird is not yet an option, and because trains booked less than 30 years in advance between the UK and Spain seemed to cost as much as a dog kennel in Hackney. But Deutsche Bahn, unlike the bloody French and Spanish, also shows you the cheaper routes. Even with Google Maps I think it’s still the best guide to Spanish and French railways. Renfe, apart from ugly attempts to upsell so that someone apart from white-collar thieves will use the high-speed, continues to be a complete facking UI disaster, and the fact that all the various authorities (horizontally/vertically) are broke and at war with one another obviously doesn’t contribute to a happy planning experience.
