This year, with kids and grandkids, we found our summer vacation home, isolated in the middle of a UNESCO biosphere reserve, a national park, Montseny. On the map below, we can see the location. We are in Spain, but rather in the centre of the Catalonian region with its own language and culture, about an hour’s drive from the French border, an hour’s drive from Barcelona, half an hour’s drive to the coast line, Costa Brava … and some ten minutes’ drive to the nearest civilisation.
The house was really nice. We had some beautiful sunny summer days, however also a few days with thunderstorms and rain.
We took the opportunity to visit Barcelona, Gerona, Figueras and the the nearby beaches. I will revert on more detailed reports on Barcelona and Figueras (and Salvador Dali). Here are in the meantime some pictures from Gerona – a partly rainy day…
… and from Costa Brava - a sunny day.
