Sunshine & Snow Capped Mountains

We woke up to clear blue skies and plenty of sunshine but before we started on our drive to Spain Tony took a photo of the following van that may suit, John Nichols and anyone like-minded for a bargain!

Not so modern campervan

We headed south and decided to call in on Perpignan as we had visited there before (about 20 years) ago and wanted to see what it was like today. We followed signs to the Centre but were unable to find suitable parking and gave up, maybe save it for our journey home.

The scenery was lovely over the Pyrenees and in the distance we could see the snow capped mountains of Andorra.

We followed the coast, passed through Barcelona and have now camped south of Sitges at a campsite near Vilanova i la Geltru where we plan to stay for the next 2 nights.

Tomorrow we will venture into Sitges, a coastal town that I visited in 1968 and is now renowned worldwide for its Film Festival and Carnival and is a popular destination for gay and lesbian travellers, as it has become one of the most gay-friendly places in the world. Tony says I take him to all the best places! I will be on a mission to find ‘Paddy’s Bar’, which when I came in 1968 with my Mum, Dad and brother Terry, was a place we frequently visited and according to Terry it is still there.
