When: July 2018
Now this was a really spontaneous trip. Just a few days ago Javi said to me: “What do you think about going to Girona for 3 days?”, “sounds great!” I responded, and one day later he already booked the apartment and planned the whole trip. So here we are now – in Girona!
We are staying in an apartment (Airbnb) with 2 bedrooms for 4 people. The apartment was really nice, clean and modern. The host was really friendly and the location great – just a few minutes walking distance to the city centre.
First we went to the famous bridge built by Gustave Eiffel (yes, the same as Eiffeltower!). I love how everything here is so colourful. The houses are all orange, red, yellow etc. The reflection of the colours in the river are so beautiful.
Today we arrived pretty late so we only walked around the city center of Girona and then went to the city wall which is amazing too. Girona is a really nice city. The next two days we will go to see some villages in that area. Our plan is to see Besalú, Cadaqués, Empuriabrava, the volcanoes and Aiguablava. All that in 2 days! We will see how that goes 🙂
I am really surprised by how green it is here. I am used to the brown and dry landscapes of Valencia. Girona is in the north of Spain, close to France, and the landscape is really beautiful here, honestly did not expect that!
Don’t mind de hearts on the map – it’s because my favourite places in Valencia are saved on Google Maps and I don’t know how to make them disappear haha.
