Two months in my new home town Barcelona tempted me to spend my birthday weekend in the surroundings of the costa brava. We rented a car and drove along the coast with no specific stops in mind – only our accommodation in beautiful Girona.
Passing lonely coves and hilly highways, we arrived in the city of Girona.
Coincidentally we came across a wonderful food and music festival with homemade tapas, live music and a dreamy view over the old city. Well-filled, we arrived at our tasteful AirBnB right in the heart of the old town.
The next day called for some early brunch at La Fábrica. The nutter butter sandwich with almond butter, banana and shredded coconut was probably one of the best I have ever had for breakfast. Suffice it to say that the coffee was pretty brilliant too.
After that refreshment we hit the road again, passed by small villages in the mountains and picturesque costal areas.
A quick stop in Figueres led us to the Dalí museum.
After winding further through the mountains, we approached Cadaqués. I fell head over heels for the town with its white houses, nooks and crannies.
The way back to Barcelona led us along the coast again, taking a bath here and there and enjoying the life of Riley at costa brava.
