I was going to write a long, rambling account of my travels in Spain, but I discovered that I can't be bothered. Thus, there follows a list of links to photos with brief accompanying notes. I'll take questions when you've looked at them.

General views around Barcelona:

Calella and around:

From the time when I was 5, until I was about 15 we went to Calella de Palfrugell, a small seaside town on the Costa Brava pretty much every year. I decided I'd go back for a few days this year, and it was as lovely as I remembered it. I wandered to the neighbouring town of Llafranc a couple of times too.

Palafrugell is the nearest town to Calella with links to the outside world. It's where the bus from Barcelona and to Girona went.

Most Brits who know of Girona probably only know it as the airport where you fly before being bussed to your Costa Brava hellhole for two weeks of all day breakfasts in English pubs. What it really is is a great city with a lovely old town.
