    Salt and sweat

    July 22, 2019 in France ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    With Scot out of action due to the possible bug going around Nick, Megs and I headed to Cassis for a beach day. Arriving in Cassis we treated ourselves to a nice gelato! We then had a long walk to get to got first beach and thought it couldn't get any better swimming in beautiful blue waters and jumping off the rocks. We then hiked up and down a mountain on the more difficult path walking on slippery rocks. I thought I was going to turn into puddle of sweat! But we made it and it was a beautiful spot. There was also a cute well behaved dog practicing his moves. We then hiked it back up and down the mountain back into town for some dinner. We then realised that the busses up to the train station finish at 8 15 and it was 8 30! So we attempted to get an Uber or taxi however failed. Exhausted we hiked up another big hill turning a 45min walk into a 30min one just so we could make the train. Big day!Read more

    Window shopping in Barcelona

    July 19, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Spent the day in Barcelona saw the la Sagrada familia from the outside. Then went to see some of Goudi's beautiful apartment buildings. Then we went to Güell park and walked through the gardens and saw his sculptures from a distance because the tickets were sold out for the day. The group then split and I went with the boys to see the food markets where we got a bouquet of salami and lots of fruit. We then went to Barcelona stadium and once again only saw it from the outside as it was closed for the day. Then we all got back and watched the girls take hours and hours to get ready for a pub crawl. At the pub crawl danced the night away making friends and pulling out the dad moves.Read more

    Had a relaxing day we went into the town and saw a UNESCO activity where people come sit outside the church to discuss the water irrigation however there's nothing to talk about now so they sit for 5 mins then leave. Then had a yummy gelato. Then nearly missed the bus AGAIN to Barcelona due to laziness and bad time management. Then when we got to Barcelona we met the boys friends from their Croatia trip who stayed with us.Read more

    July 17, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Went on a walking tour and explored the town. Saw the holy grail, silk market, food market, and churches. Then we had our first paella and sangria. Then we climbed the tower and nearly died from lack of fitness. Then went to the museum of art and science and saw some interesting linguistic, mars and chromosome exhibitions. Meagan stayed home today not feeling too crash hot. We then went out to dinner and tried tapas with the best meatball we have ever had and the famous Valencian cocktail (orange). Then we went on a pub crawl which was lots of fun and made some friends along the way.Read more

    We escaped the Medina and saved the princess in an escape room. Then had our last lunch in Morocco before heading to the airport. At the airport they hand wrote our boarding pass and when we got to security we had to go alllll the way back because the date was missing and we couldn't write it in. Made it to Valencia. Meagan got severe food poisoning up all night.Read more
