A change in the weather!

Well! after a very mild and dry winter we have had rain at last...but it is still quite mild. The sea has also been very rough today and again its taken much of the sand away from the beach, and the streets are deserted owing to this very damp and dismal weather!

A day in Vic

Vic is a beautiful medieval town in Catalonia, it's huge Plaza Mayor hosts many popular events throughout the year and twice a week (Tuesday & Saturday) you can visit one of the biggest and best markets around! Best buys are clothing, household items and also Catalan sausage and delicious fuet which Vic is very famous for. This picturesque square is surrounded by some very interesting buildings shops, restaurants, bars and cafes...easily reachable by bus (from Girona) or car its well worth a visit!
