i am starting my travels in barcelona and want to head out from there right away and spend from may 1 to may 7 touring around northern spain and southern france. I have a place to stay in batcelona from may 7 thru may 13. am meeting someone in barcelona may 1 and the place we are staying at there starts on my 7, so we want to travel around for the 6 or 7 days before our 7 day stay in barcelona. Am wondering what to do in that interim period AND WHAT ARE SOM GOOD AREAS TO VISIT OUTSIDE THE BARCELONA AREA WHEN WE ARE THERE FOR 7 DAYS.
