A weekend in Cambrils / Cote D'O - Spain

A weekend in Cambrils/Spain...

So, my school friend Brigitte turned 50 in July. Since her birthday fell on the holidays her birthday wish was that Paetsi and I (her two best friens) would come over to Spain to celebrate with her. So one saturday morning in July Paetsi and I met at the airport and took a 2-hours flight to Barcelona. After our arrival we went in search for the company that we had rented a car from. Took us some time to find out that we had to take a bus but once we knew it was pretty easy. The bus brought us to an office outside of the airport area. Once all formalities were done we went outside to find our car. And Paetsi was totally thrilled when we found our FIAT 500. It looks like a small car but actually it isn't that small.

So off we went to drive down to Cambrils where Brigitte and her family were expecting us. The drive was somehow unspectacular. I don't know what I had expected (nothing I guess since I had only a slight idea in which direction we were headed after having landed in Barcelona) but the landscape was not really nice. We saw lots of burned grounds. After about two hours we stopped at a gas station, ate ice cream and sandwiches and smelled the aroma of cypresse-trees. Then we continued following the directions that Brigitte had given Paetsi and we didn't get lost before we finally arrived at the little village of Cambrils at the Cote d'or (Gold Coast). We found the house and I liked the colour and the tower-like buildings....

We were welcomed by everyone and once we had settled in an chatted some we went for a walk around the little village that is directly at the mediterranean sea. Here are a couple of impressions of the beach-side.

Then we went back to the house and spent the rest of the day playing volleyball in the pool.

And then the day was mostly over and it was time for some birthday celebrations....

And BBQ for dinner....
Life is better in flip flops!
