A Magical Day

Last weekend we finally managed to go to the Efteling again. The weather was a bit cold at times. But overall nice enough to be outside for a couple of hours. It was pretty busy so we skipped the long queues and just had a walk in the Fairytale Forest and enjoyed the merry-go-round. Just being there already brings a smile on our faces.

Race Cars and Castles

First post of 2018. But probably it should have been the last of 2017. Let’s hope 2018 will be more manageable with photo editing and blogging.

Discovering the Medes Islands by Boat

The nice things about this boat is that is has a glass-bottom with underwater viewing. This makes it possible to see under water (only took some iPhone shots there) and have a look at the flora and fauna. The whole trip took about 1,5 hours and a strong stomach helps. 🙂

Instead of visiting their house they offered using their apartment in L’Estartit, which is a small town and seaside resort on the Costa Brava. To make things easier for ourselves we also rented a car. We had visited Barcelona a couple of times but hadn’t seen much else of Catalonia. We arrived on Thursday afternoon and decided to visit Girona on Friday. The Catalonia independence situation luckily didn’t cause any problems.
