Costa Brava, a very brief photo glimpse 32


I was honored to be invited to a blog trip to the Costa Brava region of northern Spain a few weeks ago by the amazing and wonderful folks at the Costa Brava Tourism Board.

Unlike seemingly all my other blog companions on that trip, I am so far behind on my posting schedule that I likely won’t be able to do all my posts about this great trip for a month or so. But in the meantime, I did want to roll though some of my photos to just give you a very brief and non-comprehensive look at just a few of the sights I was able to absorb in this trip packed full of action and memories.

Ferran Adrià with bart simpson

Ferran Adrià is one of the most famous residents of the region (one of the best chefs in the world). How famous is he? He was a character in an episode of the Simpsons.

We spent a lot of time on the coast part of Costa Brava — look at this water.
