Calella de Parafrugell and Llafranc

For my Birthday earlier this month I had no idea what to do. If I was on my own I’d have gone to the zoo usual for a Sunday. Surprise huh?! P’s here so he hired a car for the weekend. I knew I wanted to be outside somewhere along the coast, but where?!

The weather for the weekend kept changing from rain to sunny skies. From 22C to 19C. Searching for a place to go Calella de Parafrugell came up. It looked kinda cute plus it’s part of the Cami de Ronda, a former smugglers path along most of Costa Brava’s rugged coastline which we’re gradually walking parts of. Famous for its 9 coves and painted fishing huts Continue reading “Calella de Parafrugell and Llafranc”

Cala Castell, Castell Cap Roig And The Zoo

I hope you had a great weekend! 

Spring as I like it arrived this Sunday. A sunny 18-20C making me one happy girl! Okay, maybe not being impatient wanting to wear shorts now and knowing that’s it’s not quite warm enough for shorts yet. Soon Nat, soon!

This weekend we got out the city again to walk more of the Camin de Ronda or part of the old anti smugglers route along the Costa Brava. The way to find path starts is to ignore the sat nav once you’re the chosen costal town, seeing where the car ends up letting your inner explorer take over. Back tracking however to Friday the cats had another vet visit.  Continue reading “Cala Castell, Castell Cap Roig And The Zoo”

Marimurtra Jardi Botanic

Nestled along the rocky Costa Brava coastline is the spellbinding Marmurtra Jardi Botanic. A botanical garden that has you feeling like you’re in the royal gardens of King’s Landing or ancient Greece with it’s Linnaeus Pavilion. 

I first saw the gardens entrance on the back of a motorbike last year finding Cala Francesc, Continue reading “Marimurtra Jardi Botanic”

Dear Cold,……

I’d like my skin back please.

Thanks to P being here and his cooking (thank ya) it’s been easier to bust this cold. If he wasn’t I’m sure it would have got a lot worse quicker before it got better. It’s still hanging around play havoc with my skin, making it feel dry. I’ve been drinking as much water and fluids, slapping on lotions and potions as I can but I can’t shift the dry feeling. Around my eyes feels like a desert and my eyelids. Currently like a puffer fish. There’s a reason why BB cream, concealer and face yoga were invented!

I hope you had a great weekend! In between trying not to feel sorry for myself for the power of being positive shifts it quicker (last time mentioning a cold) it was tackling some of that do list weekend. It’s also the reason why I didn’t take many photos the past few days, hence photo no overload. img_5072-1
