... and not loving it.

Things I have learnt:
  • If you walk 10 miles in a day whilst wearing flip flops your calves will not thank you the next day. Or the day after that.
  • It is possible to eat nothing but croquettes, calamari, chorizo and patatas bravas. No fruit, no vegetables, no healthy food of any sort. Slimming World will not thank me next week. Neither will my thighs.
  • Cava, beer and sangria are all MARVELLOUS. Not that I didn't already know that. Sometimes it's nice to be reminded though.
  • It is not always sunny in Spain. And the rain does not always stay mainly on the plain.

Possibly the best holiday ever. However, I've been up since 5.45am and am now feeling the effects. More pictures and tales of mischief tomorrow, when I'm back on top form xx

God, I miss Spain...a LOT. Glad you had a good time xx

Helen said...

Tuppence - Thankyou! And me too! xx

PJB - I can see why. It was wonderful. x

I was lucky when I went to Barca because it didn't rain at all - mind you, it was the first week in August so maybe that's why.

I fell in love with sangria de cava when I was there.

Welcome back - I hope you feel better to be home soon - holiday comedown is never fun!

P - We had one day of rain, one day of glorious sun and one mixed day. Not too shabby. Still managed to get sunburnt!

Tinto de Verrano, that's the stuff to drink in Spain. Sangria is pee.

Gingerella said...

Welcome back! I'm sure I said this before but yes, Barca is amazing. I hated being back as well.

Helen said...

Bren - After some of the stuff I've drunk in my time, sangria is nectar!

Gingerella - I actually feel like I'm grieving!! x
