From Barcelona to Mediterranean Beaches & Catalonia’s Peaks
Put one foot in front of the other. Feel the crunch of pine needles beneath your shoes. The sun’s warmth on your face. Repeat. The perfect rhythm to another perfect day. It’s simple to settle into this pace. To amble amid high cliffs, heavenly Costa Brava beaches and immense Pyrenees massifs as if there’s no separation between the landscape and your leisurely swinging limbs. Medieval towns unsullied by time. Whitewashed fishing villages. Curvaceous calas (coves) and an azure sea. Walking in Catalonia. One of travel’s most perfect pleasures.
