Just got back from a lovely trip to Costa Brava

I just got back from my first trip to this area - what a beautiful place!! I had a business trip to Barcelona and since I love smaller, more scenic areas much better than big cities (particularly those swamped with cruise ship visitors) I decided to spend a few extra days outside of Barcelona. I think I got most of my info from here and decided Costa Brava would be a good place to go. We stayed at the Hotel El Far in Llafranc which was a lovely, quiet spot at this time of year. Spent a day there, made one day trip to Tossa de Mar - driving down the beautiful scenic drive along the coast, and made another day trip to Cadaques - another beautiful drive and delightful town. I absolutely loved walking through the tiny streets in this place. We decided to make a trip to Andorra on our last day when we headed back to Barcelona since we figure we'd probably never make it to that country at any other time. The drive was beautiful - Andorra not so much. Anyway, I thought Costa Brava sights were fantastic. Not sure what it's like during the busy season but in October it was a perfect match for my taste.

I´m glad to know you had a lovely trip to the Costa Brava. Maybe you want to take a look at some pictures of the area, just to remind you of the place:

About Andorra. I was there last month and I loved the place. The least attractive part is from Spain to Andorra la Vella and the capita itself. But if you go a little far north, the landscape is spectacular. Some pictures too:

Come back soon because there are many beautiful spots in the Costa Brava

Cheers

Jose
