Itinerary Overview

We woke early one morning, looked at each other, shrugged and said 'let's go to Spain!'. We drove to Girona, explored the beautiful city, ate the beautiful food and visited the incredible Dali museum in Figueres. We ate churros and tapas and left with full tummies and a desire to explore some more of Catalonia.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    We would have stayed longer. It was so beautiful, we felt like we could have taken more time to enjoy it.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Nothing went wrong. It was perfect.

  • How was the food?

    For churros: Montse L’Artesena (Carrer de la Cort Reial, 9)

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Take cold water, sunscreen and a hat it is VERY hot in the Summer.

  • Transportation Tips?

    There's ample parking in Girona for a reasonable fee. A car is not necessary to explore the city but to venture to surrounding areas it definitely helps.

  • Any surprises?

    How difficult it was to find churros! Don't worry, we worked hard and got it done of course!
