Mosquito's Farewell

A travel blog entry by rosabranca on Sep 02, 2012

One of my greatest dreams was to see a piece of work from Gaudí, and when I found out we weren't going ...

... candy store with Kindereggs and Chupa Chups (our favorite Spanish candies). We then sat by the harbor for a while and watched all the sailboats in the bay. It was nice to finally explore the town we will be staying in for the next three weeks- and it's such a beautiful quaint little European town. There was even a festival going on downtown today ...
