... magic happened. After dinner, I checked my email and I had received an email from my mother stating, "I want to give you $500 dollars because I think you will need it." I was stunned, shocked, and of course excited. It was very clear to me that I had to take this EFT course, I was destined to.
So, to continue the celebrations we went down to the beach where there was a town celebration for the summer solstice. There where fireworks, ...
This afternoon we head past the foot of the Pyrenees to Sant Pol to do some kayaking and snorkelling. We wind around the bay on our kayaks and take in the sights. The water is a crystal clear green. Of course we rock each other's boats and splash about along the way. I don't see very many fish around however. But definately a fun outdoorsy afternoon.

Add that to the fantastic weekly shop rides on Thurs. from Bike Breaks, Girona Cycle Center and you have a recipe for a great bike holiday in Spain. Well it gets even better because I am meeting other cyclists familiar with the area (Neil, Josep) and so every ride has a little different twist.
The reality is that I have to plan rest days because of all of the riding that is possible. At my delicate age I need to focus ...

The waitress arrived at our table with a trainee waitress in tow like a faithful pet watching her every move. She offered a selection of breads then opened and poured the water. She then returned to the restaurant with the trainee following close behind. A short time later the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ciutat de Girona
We booked this hotel having read the excellent reviews but we were rather disappointed. The best feature of the hotel is its excellent location in the city centre. It is a stone's throw from the fashionable shops and restaurants and just a few minutes from the Cathedral. Everything you might want is within easy walking distance, which is certainly a big advantage if you are staggering home at night after a heavy meal. However, the hotel rooms have no balconies and views only of walls; and there is no terrace or other outside space for relaxing. The hotel has no carpark and finding a parking space in the street often takes ages and entails quite a walk.
Truly excellent - found this hotel via the internet as a last minute booking. Although it was a little hard to find it was well worth the effort. Friendly staff, lovely rooms (with lots of nice touches). Right in the heart of Girona with everything around you. Restaurant was superb too at ridiculously cheap prices. You won't be disappointed. A true gem.
Wonderful place,great hotel
Stayed in Girona for our last night,after a busy few days in Barcelona.A wonderful hotel,the girl on the front desk was very helpful,the breakfast had lots of choice,rooms very stylish;cd player,internet access,a quality place.Girona is a good place to visit,wish we could have stayed longer than the one night.Make sure that you check out the gardens and walks round the city walls,very peaceful.
Really nice hotel and very obliging staff
Although a little hard to find, the parking is not at the hotel but very close by - the hotel is in small cobbled streets which makes getting there a little challenging but the road signs definitely help.
THis was a really nice hotel. The staff were so obliging that when I realized I had booked a room for June and we were there for the same date but July, they had charged me for the no show but then gave us the room for free in July. Very very sweet of them as they did not need to do this.
The hotel itself is very nice - a good quality 4 star hotel and the beds are quite comfrotable.
The old town and restaurants are all very close by and you can easily walk around the town, thus leaving your car in the garage ;-)
Would definitely go again!
Excellent. Staying in Gerona? Stay here!
Staying in Gerona? Stay here! Nearly new hotel, modern and stylish. Very central location, 2 minutes from where you want be but still enjoying a peaceful location.
Mini Bar is free yes free, it only has a few drinks in it but free noneless and refilled when empty.
20 Euros for a taxi from the airport to hotel, approx 20 minutes.
Very worth while. Trian station is a short walk, 10mins tops. train to Barcelona is 75mins and costs around 10euros return, they operate a frequent service.

First Class Hotel
Got Hotel off the internet. Have absolutely no regrets. Would recommend the hotel. It's location in the city is perfect and the helpfulness of the staff made the stay easy. The service was superb, the room was first class, well worth a return visit.
We found the hotel on the net at a small hotel booking agency in Barcelona. We were amazed at how good this hotel was when we arrived by train a couple of hours later. The receptionist who spoke perfect English could not have been more helpful. The room was first class as was the bathroom and it even had a complimentary bar ! all for 90 Euro's for both of us. The restaurant was very good and was one of the few which has a no smoking area. My only complaint which was not the fault of the hotel was that in the early hrs of Saturday, there was a lot of noise in the street below. Rather drunk young men and women singing. However this did not detract from an otherwise excellent hotel in a very nice town.
Must visit city and hotel
1st class hotel in a great location. the staff are a credit to this very modern,clean hotel with a great resturant. girona is a gem of a city and is well worth a visit you wont be dissapointed.
Brilliant Gerona Hotel
Picked up the hotel on the internet and came here with some trepidation, neednt have worried its superb!
The rooms are first rate, the service exemplary and the restaurant has food you could die for.
A real pleasure to stay here, no small compliment as I spend my working life in hotels across the globe. Real value for money in a wonderful city.
