Hello to all
Well I am back writing my blog again. After nearly three weeks getting over this cold of mine I am fully back to myself again.
Sitges - a place in the sun. The drive was great and I am now use to driving at the minimum speed of 120klms an hr on the other side of the road as one does in Europe. A very uneventful drive fantastic road and Sitges was really easy to get to even with my hand drawn map.
My hotel the Santa Maria is at the doorstep to the Med just walk across the road then the broadwalk and into the calm of the Medeterranean Ocean.
Sitges is a lively town with plenty for all to see and do from shopping to visiting galleries and historic sites as well, the people are as everywhere I have be so far very polite and friendly always a hello and a smile. My three days there was very good with a 2 hr walk along the many beaches after brekky then sit on the beach for some tanning (which I got a lot of) then a wade along the beach and a pint or three to finish off. Most people seem to start the day at around 10.30 am and finish around 11pm with some hanging out til 4.30am. Saturday there was a festival and the place was packed as you can see from the pics I took.The food was great the beer cold and the accomodation was really tops especially the location a balcony overlooking the beach what more does one need.
Right now the sun is shining in Florensac good stuff
Hope you like the photos and get an ideal of what Sitges is like
