Barcelona and Tarragona


A short report from when I went to Spain again last weekend! This trip was a bit less active than the last one, mainly because it was just too hot to do anything. We did go to a town called Tarragona, about 100km from Barcelona, 15€ for a return ticket from the city center. Definitely worth checking out if you're going to spend more time in this area.

The beaches are absolutely stunning. Extremely calm and quiet compared to Barcelona or Sitges. Whereas I'd never leave my stuff unattended on the beach in BCN, it felt safe enough to both go into the water and just keep an eye on our belongings. Lots of families and couples on this beach.


This is a town that you can see most of within a few hours. It's really small but it has a lot of beautiful old buildings from Roman times. The area around Tarragona is supposed to be even more stunning, but alas, we can't drive.

This is Keith's housemate's cat. She's the fluffiest cat in the whole wide world!

We went for a picnic on top of a hill in Barcelona. At the abandoned Civil War bunkers at Turó de la Rovira you have an amazing view of the whole city: the ocean and the city center in front of you, Mt Tibidabo behind you. Perfect spot to watch the sun set (and the lights go on!) while enjoying some cheap wine.

So, the big question on everyone's mind right now (at least, on mine after seeing your beautiful pics on Instagram, together with him): is Keith your boyfriend? ;)

Your photos are great! I've been researching places to take a vacation this winter and while I probably won't go to Spain (I want to go somewhere I haven't been yet) the spirit of your pictures are getting me excited to travel!
