Reason for the trip: Due to the end of the semester, many students of the Erasmus program are leaving the town in this time, the end of the academic year. So we decided to do the last trip with everybody.
As we just entering the spring, the time helps for a better stay. We gathered all the people and organized to rent a bus and share the hotel to be cheaper for everyone, and even with the low price the hotel is very good, we didn’t want to return. We plan to rest on Thursday night and so we could go out rested,
…but when you are on the exchange, nothing goes as planned. Right
We partied on Thursday night and Friday were all in hang over, but we did not know that the road were curves and more curves, which caused some of us stay sick along the way. Yes, we survived and got to the destination as expected, Costa Brava. We left our stuffs in the hotel and went straight to the beach to enjoy the rest of the day and the sunset in front of the sea.
We wanted to rest to enjoy the night in Costa Brava, but the time went so fast on the beach that we didn’t have much time for it. Back at the hotel we prepare to go to the Trinket Bar, a cozy place with snooker and an open environment in the back.
The night didn’t last much, after all we only had Saturday to enjoy the beach, and we wanted to enjoy early on, every minute that we were there. So, we raised around 9am for breakfast in the hotel
a wonderful, complete and entitled to many fatty foods – and went to the beach!
We could see some differences between the cultures here in Catalonia and in Brazil, which in our country all are always very willing. To enjoy the whole day in the sand appreciating the sun, sea, and all that the context can offer. And compared to here, people do not like to go so soon and spend all day in the beach.
And there we were, three of us, brazilian flatmates arriving very early to stay until the last minute of sunshine. From the beach we could see the stones on the right, away from us but where we could get going. And to the left, the castle, small, simple, in the edge of the cliff in front of the sea.
Tossa de Mar is a beach in Costa Brava, located 100km from Barcelona, and it was there that we spent one of the best weekends so far.
You can relax lying on the seafront or go to an adventure on the rocks that lead to amazing places, without mention the pure and clear water to swim. You can also know the castle, and from above enjoy a wonderful view of both the city and the calm waters.
