Free time has been short on the Costa Brava blogtrip so far. This has meant that actually writing about the trip has been put on the back-burner whilst we privileged bloggers are exposed to experiences that are almost too overwhelming to absorb fully.

This is a brief photoblog to summarise a voyage through Costa Brava that has not only exceeded expectations but blasted them to smithereens.

A tranquil start in the Santa Clotilde Gardens

Deliciously sweet gambas & an even sweeter experience in a fishermen's hut in Cala de Llirius

The creative kitchen of one of the world's best restaurants, El Celler de Can Roca

Divinely surreal in the Dali Museum

    We loved the Dali museum in Figueres. Even as you walk up to the building you know it’s going to be something special as you you get your first glimpse of those TVs 30 foot in the air on pillars of auto tyres. Then walking into the courtyard and being overwhelmed by one of the world’s biggest paintings (covers one whole side of the building !) and the bizar crash dummy installation outside. And inside … the famous lips sofa – marvellous … it just goes on and on. A wonderful place that works on many levels: a fun-land for kids to rival anything on their PlayStations and a full-on dose of surrealism-meets-rock-&-roll for the arty-farties.

      Spot on Richard. We went there at the very end of a jam-packed day and were emotionally tired (after coming down from the ‘high’ of skydiving) and sluggish after a zillion courses at the Celler de Can Roca. It needed something pretty special to perk us up again…Dalí’s museum did the trick perfectly. I could have spent days in there.

    Interesting. I had a quick holiday there a day or two ago and I really enjoyed it. 🙂

      It surprised me with the variety of what I found there. Not what I expected at all. Another case of tour companies misrepresenting a destination.
