... worry about that, Mrs I never get rat ***** will fill in the blanks.
Needless to say there are probably a couple of establishments in Palamos with my piccy behind the bar. Today we leave Spain tomorrow the frogs, what can I say. I will soon return to take charge of my granddaughters cultural upbringing.
Hi Ho Silver.....Awaaaaaaay

... Marcia plus 1 or 2 others on a 46 foot Benneteau sailing around the Canaries for a week in early November.
I have been getting some grief from some quarters re the standard of my David Bailey efforts and I must disappoint again. Maybe the Canaries.
As an aside one more dodgey internet connection and I will track Bill down and ram this Toshiba up his ****.

Well, the platform that the new train was on was all the way to the opposite side... of course!!! So there I went again hauling all my bags down across and up again, plus isn't easy getting all the baggage on the train, either. Some of trains have 2 to 3 steps. Well, I finally got all my stuff on and off we went to my next stop.
have been advised some of my readers think the adventure is over. Wrong!!! I have yet to pass the final practical exam. set for 21 22 sept. So keep reading.e I am now in Palamos on new boat and Paul and I have been cut loose so we are sailing around teaching ourselves. Excellent.
Will post more this weekend.

... to tell him not to worry as I wouldn't be back at 1pm as indicated. The ride took you out into the countryside, a bit too rural, as it turned out. About 30km down, and now in the middle of the day, I started to feel like ****. I could get my breath in ok but my chest seemed to be tight and I had no energy to ride. I was thinking I had really lost all my fitness - I couldn't even manage a flat ride. I slowly made it home and by the then could not talk properly. I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Costabella Girona
First class bargain
Better than we expected. Excellent clean room, helpful staff. Cheap and good dinner from restaurant though limited for vegetarians. free sauna and jacussi (well we think it was free!).Amazing value plus a staggering breakfast choice. Can walk to station for train to Barcelona (8 euros!) along river through old town, about 30-40 minutes. taxi from airport to hotel 30 euros.
Read the reviews and must agree in the affirmative, the hotel is superb. The reception staff are friendly and helpful, the restaurant staff are also very helpful, and the ladies that tidy up your room are very efficient.
High quality bargain
We found this hotel by driving into town, and finding that it was impossible to find any of the small hotels (hidden) in the old section near the cathedral. Room rate was reasonable, though not really cheap, but the room was excellent, and a sumptuous breakfast buffet was included. From here you can drive and park closer to the "tourist" area, or it's a pleasant 15 minute walk. Comes with free parking.
After a hectic few days in Barca we moved onto Girona and chose the Costabella due to the fact it has a pool as we wanted to relax a bit as well as carry on with our sightseeing. Bonus, nobody else really used the pool during the day so it was like having a private villa. The vending machine next to the pool was also a winner as the beer was much cheaper than from the bar inside. Also has jacuzzi and sauna, free coffee and cakes during the day and excellent clean rooms. 10 Minute walk to town is not the most scenic but that all changes once you reach the Old Town. Beautiful city, excellent choice of bars and restaurants and easy to find your way around. Would definately recommend Girona.
Myself and 3 girlfriends visited Gerona for long weekend. We booked our flights and hotel separately.
Nice pleasant hotel
Nice clean hotel, good quality room/bathroom. Swimming pool excellent - needed after a hot day touristing. Free Internet usage definitely useful. Hotel staff always very pleasant and helpful. Not in the centre of town but you can walk to the Cathedral in 20 mins. However taxis plentiful and the reception can magic one up in minutes !! Cost about 6 Euros to the rail/bus station - well worth it. Rail return Barcelona 10.80 Euro return. Bus return to Lloret for the seaside was 8 Euros - takes 45 mins. Further 2.30Euro return will get you to Tossa - much quieter and fascinating mediaeval fortified town. Champion supermercado just up the road - do your shopping there. Enjoyed stay very much
Lovely hotel, beautiful city
This is a really lovely hotel. It is only 15 minutes walk to the city centre or 5 mins in a taxi for about 6 euro, and it was nice to be in a peaceful location out of town in a hotel with a pool as it was so hot. The breakfast buffet is fantastic with a wide choice and quite good value at 8 euro 50. There is a lovely pool area and a raised sun terrace which makes up for the fact that none of the rooms have individual terraces or balconies. The service is excellent and English is spoken by all the reception staff. Girona itself is a wonderful city, plenty to see and do in a long weekend and great places to eat and drink. Barcelona is only 1 hr 15 by train and it cost about 12 euro return.
A wonderful hotel experience.
Beautiful, modern hotel. Walking distance to center of town. Very good breakfast buffet. Pleasant staff. Free internet access. A nice place in a wonderful town.
I got this hotel on Expedia for $65/night, which is incredible considering the recent remodeling job. There is a beautiful little outdoor swimming pool, an indoor sauna and jacuzzi, spacious rooms with big beds and gorgeous bathrooms, a nice little restaurant, a game room and a lounge with fireplace and free internet access. There are complimentary snacks/fruit coffee and tea offered in the lobby throughout the day, and the parking lot is free. You can't walk to anything in town, but it's a quick, 3 minute drive away. Located directly across from the hospital. Only (and I mean ONLY) problem is that all of the floors are marble, and the doors are very thin, so you can hear people opening and closing doors throughout the night. I solved this problem by turning the fan on inside the room at night. Incredible value, great service, and very comfortable sleeping. I would stay here again for sure!!!! (Especially in summer when you can use the pool!)
Very quite & comfortable
It's a very cute & comfortable hotel and I had a very good time, in the jacuzzy with the waiter. I recommend it.Ana Curtis.
