Photo Essay from around Costa Brava
There is more delicious food and stunning scenery in Costa Brava than you can shake a Pimientos de Padrón at. We present a photo essay of Costa Brava.
We love to capture our travel adventures in words. We like to put you in the moment with us as we tear around the Tuscan countryside on our scooter. Or we want you to live vicariously through us as we face our own fears when we are deep underground caving in Budapest.
However, sometimes it is just easier to paint a picture in your head with photos rather than words…
Costa Brava in Photos
If you want a place to base yourself in Costa Brava, then start in Girona. Colourful houses, cute bridges criss-cross the winding river, and enough scrumptious food to keep any foodie in heaven. Or a food coma.
Apparently 1 in 10 of these delicious salty Pimientos de Padrón (tiny green peppers an inch or two long) are a hiding a secret spiciness waiting to unleash on the unsuspecting pinxtos eater. Luckily, even though I ate a tonne, I never hit a spicy one.
When we were not eating, we were on a cycling tour along endless tracks with not a soul in sight.
And being shown incredible secret spots like this secluded waterfall by our local cycling guides. I just wish I had my swimming togs.
Costa Brava runs along the northeast coastline of Spain, so there are empty stretches of beaches like this one near the town of Palamos just waiting to be explored. Wouldn’t be a bad place to live and launch your rowing boat through your castle wall.
Sant Feliu de Guíxols Monastery.
One of just the many gorgeous sunsets we watched to finish off our incredible days during our biking adventures.
I personally couldn’t think of a better view in Costa Brava.
Disclaimer: Cole was a guest of the Costa Brava tourism board for 3 days. And although I can’t claim that I made the Spanish food and countryside look even more beautiful, my opinions and my photos are always my own.
