We went to Spain Sep 11-18th. Every day was hot and humid, which I didn’t mind at all. We walked everywhere, which is my preferred mode of transport if I’m travelling in an unfamiliar city. We’re guessing that we easily covered 100km or more in 6 days, and that’s a good thing when I think about how much beer, cava and sangria we joyfully consumed.
The highlights of the trip were the gothic section of the city, including the cathedral and the remains of the Roman wall, and a day trip out of the city into the hilly fertile countryside. We visited 2 vineyards and enjoyed tasting wines and a traditional catalunyan style lunch (bread, tomatoes, cheese, preserved meats, raisins- pic below).
