    Once I’d discovered that this place existed, I knew that it was one for the bucket list. I’d done Google image searches, hungry for more pictures. This landscape just has that sort of postcard-picture attraction. I think it was definitely the colour of the water that drew me in. We don’t really get that sort […]

      About three hours after driving over the beautiful Pyrenees, we arrived our second campsite to do some camping in Catalonia. It was situated about an hour’s drive south of the big port city, Barcelona. We wanted to visit both Barcelona and Tarragona, so we picked a campsite in between the two cities in Catalonia. […]
