Catalonia 2017

Last time I went to Catalonia everything was in black and white apart from Agnetha Fältskog’s trousers.
That was 1973, and I was 9.
We decided to return to see what’s changed.
It looked more than interesting enough for a fortnight’s holiday and anyway we’d promised the kids an “aeroplane and swimming pool” holiday.

Off on Our Way

Off on Our Way

Driving, flying, driving again and some walking. A very long day.
Sant Pol Beach

Sant Pol Beach

Our first full day on holiday began with a lot of relaxing.
Girona

Girona

A pretty medieval city at the very top end of Catalonia. It's so far north it's nearly France.
Olympic

Olympic

A positively Olympian day involving mountains, castles, stadiums and thankfully few naked Greek blokes. Well, none, actually.
Kayaking

Kayaking

A day spent mainly in, or on, the water.
Santa Cristina

Santa Cristina

Time for a bit of caching while the girls had a lazy day.
Not the Full Gaudi

Not the Full Gaudi

We were supposed to be going to Barcelona to see at some of Antoni Gaudí's more obvious contributions.
Ropey

This was our mid point, and the girls celebrated by climbing some trees.
Mucho de Nada

Mucho de Nada

Every holiday has a day like this. The one where we don't do anything.
Monastic

Monastic

Today was the planned day for a bit of monk-on-a-mountain action. I'd been here before, in 1973, but that was a long time ago.
Pedralta

Pedralta

A lot of geocaches, and a bit of dentistry.
