"Dear readers: I am so very sorry for this long silence! It wasn't planning on being offline for such a long time. I came to the Netherlands about 10 days ago and the places where we were staying were without internet connection (!)... perhaps a good thing for this online addict because it allowed me to fully enjoy being with my family and some time off. Last Thursday we flew to Spain and this image was taken of me yesterday, enjoying a marvellous late lunch in a wonderful restaurant in Romanya de la Selva near Girona.... so today a bit more about my vacation in Spain..."
We are Going on Vacation with me, Irene from BloesemKids
and we are we going to... LLagostera in Spain at the beautiful Costa Brava. I was 4 years old when I came here for the first time and I still love it! The beaches and rocky coast line are just amazing and the country side is gorgeous too...
Who are you bringing along?
My husband Rik and our two boys, Lode and Kiet (6 and 3 years old).
We stay at a house that my parents bought long ago. It has been renovated a couple of times but still feels very much like home. Going on vacation to a real home works very well for me... we have never been the camping types... I think that is because we've been roaming the globe for years and coming 'home' while on vacation just feels great.... down time with the family, living easy...
How do you get there?
By plane from the Netherlands and while in Spain we drive a super cute Ford convertible ... yes, you can call it an oldtimer...
What do you bring?
too much … always too much, including my work and I should not be doing that!
Any travel tips?
I always bring things-to-do books for my boys that we use during flights and traveling. I enjoy making puzzles with them or other easy games like travel bingo. This year I brought a Dutch book called…Vakantie Klets (=Holiday Talk) by gezinning and it worked perfectly. While Kiet was sleeping on my lap Lode and I worked our way through this book and had lots of fun chatting with each other and writing the pages. It is already a nice keep safe book that will always remind me of his vacation .
What are must-see places in the world according to you?
The Costa Brava… The rough beach side and the spectaular little villages that bring you back to the middle ages...
I will try to be back later today with some more images from the beach at parafrugell where we are heading right now for a late lunch at the beach in a restaurant called Tragamar.
