Chinese New Year in Lloret

 Yesterdays Chinese New Year celebrations were a massive success for Lloret as thousands of people came into town and lined the streets to watch the passing parade. The giants of Lloret also made an appearance dancing they're way along the road with the colourful Chinese dragons. Just like the previous weekend for the carnival we once again had a beautiful sunny day for the event!

A trip to Pals

Pals is a lovely little medieval town and always worth a visit even through the cold winter months. You will always find some of the little shops and restaurants/cafes open where you can pop in for a hot coffee if it does get a bit too cold as you walk around its  beautiful cobbled streets.

 There was lots of snow on the mountains in the distance when we visited just yesterday. (Monday 2nd Feb)
