Costa Brava Adventures

costabrava_enrouteAs most travel junkies, I often long to discover far away places, plan tropical vacations and exotic getaways and it’s very easy to forget that where I live is actually I place that many people dream to discover, just like I want to discover Asia or South America. I’ve been living in Barcelona for almost two and a half years now and I hardly got to know my immediate surroundings, the beauty of Catalonia and the Costa Brava. It is one of my personal goals for this year to not only discover far away places but also get to know my “backyard” a lot better. This weekend the Mr. & I escaped for a mini vacation to Aiguablava. It’s mind boggling how two days can feel like a vacation and it was a truly relaxing, beautiful weekend full of “I-can’t-believe-I-live-an-hour-from-this” moments. We discovered the pretty little town of Begur and Tamariu, we lounged by the pool and got the first sunburn of the year, had an amazing dinner in the Aiguaclara hotel and hiked through pine tree forests and beautiful beaches to discover hidden little bays that we could have all for ourselves (I guess that only happens in April though! :).

I feel lucky…

  1. It look so idyllic and it’s so true that the places close to home are the ones we forget to explore :) I like being a tourist in my own city sometimes..it never fails to surprise me what little secrets it holds :)
