Nov 18, 2018 - Girona

From Barcelona to Girona we picked up a gorgeous mountain road for most of the way and although a little narrow it was a great drive. Traffic was light but we did have to share our lane with oncoming vehicles on a few occasions which added to the fun. Girona was perfect for us. Not too big, not too busy, a great ancient old town and a comfy hotel although it did have a few too many bag shops. The old town was very interesting with a fortified wall that was fun to walk along. The maze of cobbled streets and lanes could easily get you lost...

Jan 3, 2018 - Journeying Home

We got a taxi from our apartment to Madrid Atocha for the 9.30am train to Girona via a quick swap in Barcelona Sants. We had split our journey to take Madrid to Barcelona and then Barcelona to Girona on a slightly later train as for whatever reason, rather than going direct, the tickets were about €75 cheaper. It was a long journey getting us in at 13.58pm although being on lovely, spacious trains helped the journey. Laura was still feeling a bit under the weather and I wasn't feeling great despite OD'ing on orange juice and fresh fruit....

Feb 21, 2016 - Girona

Its Sunday so ideal day to visit a larger town. Today we visited the provincial capital of Catalunya. Girona. The capital has a walled medieval quarter, Barri Vell, perched on a hill above the city. Girona has a long history with the Romans establishing the town. It then became an Islamic town after the Moors conquered Spain. It also has a long Jewish history and still has the Call the medieval Jewish quarter. For the best vantage points over Girona our guide book recommended walking the Passeig de la Muralla, this we did. This was a walk...

Aug 23, 2008 - Stansted to Girona

Amazing that I got on the plane and to Girona today, after what was an eventful morning cramming in as much as possible. after only five hours sleep, got up and went down to internet cafe to upload some albums onto the Ipod, then meet up with Greg and Kelly to get my CD's back and take over his acoustic guitar as they are leaving London going home via the Trans Siberian route. Last minute booked the Stansted Express at the internet cafe, got back home packed, got the train from Olympia to Earls Court, chenge to Picaddilly line, change at...

Jul 18, 2005 - Lloret de Mar, Spain

In the morning we about ran out of gas trying to cross the border to buy the cheaper gas in Spain but we made it, and also found a huge store on the border full of cheap bulk supplies. It was almost like a Sam's, and we were able to stock up on food and gifts. We then drove a couple hours to Costa Brava, a section of coastline north of Barcelona, Spain. We decided to spend a couple days at Lloret de Mar, a resort town on the coast. Eva had gone there a few years ago with some friends and really like it. After looking around for what seemed...

May 19, 2005 - Barcelona to Callela

Day 48 May 19th Distance: 56 kms Ride Time: 3hrs Avg Speed: 18.5kph Elevation: 2/10 Weather: Hot and fine...again 25 degrees. I set off north along the coast of Catalunya. I've just made it out of Barcelona when I get my first puncture...well, it wasn't really a puncture. The bike was feeling a bit hard to ride so I tried to pump up the back tire a bit too much and the valve burst. No problem, I finally got to use the spare tube I'd been carrying since the start. Tube changed and I'm on my way within 10 mins. The armadillo tyres we bought...
