My Spain + Andorra Travel Guide

Updated: 17 January, 2022 seen 1,879

This is a round-up post of our travel discoveries in Spain at the end of October 2014, particularly in the region of Catalonia. I hope it can inspire you if you are planning your trip to Catalonia. 

Our trip started at Tbilisi, went through Istanbul, and landed at Barcelona El Prat Airport (by Pegasus)

We booked a car from the Firefly office at El Prat Airport and our one-week-long adventures started. 

This trip took us from Barcelona to Girona, then to Roses and Cadaques, and then back to Figueras to visit World famous Salvador's Dali museum, then again back to Costa Brava. Superb hotels and even a 2-hour drive to Andorra.  Did I mention a stop at one of the most popular gay resorts in the world? 

Below you will find more detailed descriptions of places we visited:

Budget?

Spain is a very budget-friendly country - we got the car for about EUR 68 for a week, for gas we spent approximately the same. Hotels ranged from EUR 40 - to EUR 130. 

I hope this guide could inspire you for your Catalonia trip.
