We have just spend the last 5 days in Spain, great 5 days they were!
We tried to see as much as we could in that time, L'Estartit is a beautiful village on the Costa Brava. It has a great beach kilometres long, the temperature was around 30 degrees, and the water nice, what more do you want? But because we did not come here to surf, We went on the Wednesday to Barcelona, That also was a experience! Really, also a beautiful city, steeped in history, amazing to see the old architecture from people like Gaudin
. We toured Barcelona with the open roof tourbuses, we spend more then 5 hours touring this city. Saw these amazing places like the Cathedral and the Nou Camp. Everone in Holland rides a pushbike,here in Spain everyone rides a motorscooter, never saw as many as we did here. On Thursday we went to Figueres, a small town were Salvadore Dali was born and did most of his painting. The que to the museum was about a hundred metres long, so we just visited the local produce market and enjoyed the scenery around the town. When we got back to L'Estartit, Monique and Ron and kids had arrived, they were staying in the same village, so we spend the rest of the day with them in the swimmingpool, and after that went for dinner at a nice spot on the boulevard. Very enjoyable!! Friday was the day we had to fly back to Holland, (unfortunately). We could have easely spend a few weeks there! Now back in Holland, we are going to explore around Gouda and have to catch up with a few people before we go to Maastricht.
till next blog!
Hi, first of all, sorry I have not been able to update our blog, where we resided we did not have a internet connection. Sure missed that! So a lot has happened in the last week. We first spend a few days in Schiedam where we caught up with Raymond and Astrid and their kids. We had a few nice days there, also visited them at their camping in Hoek van Holland. Great day we had there, nice to see the sun on a Dutch beach!
