Posting this from Perpignan after a day of travelling on three regional trains from Riomaggiore on the Cinque Terre to Nice to overnight and refresh, and then having another full day on two trains to reach here.
It was interesting to travel overland and see the countryside along the coast for most of the way. As we rolled past one coastal village or town after another on Sunday we were amazed at the huge number of people out on ...
... Roman ruins on the Spanish coast near the town of L'Escala. Fortunately, there are still very few tourists in the area.
For those of you who are addicted to Masterchef and are thinking that I am missing out, I've found the French version - Master Patissier!! The first program had the junior chefs creating the most amazing Croquembouche and yes, they only just had it assembled when the time was up!!
It has been great to get ...
... les Bains and then back over the hill to the campsite.
The walk wasn't too taxing. There was a small dolmen on top of the hill going towards Corneilla. The sky was black for much of the day and it was very humid but stayed dry. We wandered through the steep narrow streets of the old town of Vernet Les Bains before ascending the hill back to our valley.
It thundered a little just as we arrived back at the campsite but brightened up ...
... filled with Dutch as we have come to expect wherever we go.
Tomorrow we will go into Figueres to the Dali museum. We plan to be there early to miss the crowds. It is the second most visited museum in Spain (the Museo del Prado in MadridI being the first).
Wednesday 21st May
A perfect day for going round an art gallery. It’s raining.
You can’t miss the Teatre-Museu Dali nestled ...
... where I never knew I could get them.
Today I spent 6.5 hours in the saddle with only 1 break, I know I could've stopped more but it really didn't feel right to do so. I've just ridden around the town/city (every things closed!) and booked into a cheap hotel (F1.com) for the evening. no food in sight so no burger and beer tonight, luckily I had my burger fix at the cowboy bar!
