Spontaneous Visit of Montserrat Mountain, Spain

Another spontaneous idea of visiting Montserrat Mountain arrived at our heads, after Google Maps misguided us from the main traffic road to Barcelona, and we went on the wrong direction - but hey -  we noticed a sign directing to Montserrat. Signs speak themselves.  Update: Visit of Mount Montserrat was a place from our about week long travels across region of Catalonia in Spain and Andorra. (Originally this article featured 18 bad quality pictures, 2 years...

Road to Andorra

During our one week trip in Spain, region of Catalonia, we did a lot of driving. We drove almost all around Catalonia, stayed at lovely Costa Brava townlets - and you know what? It's more than enough with one week - and you are sick and tired of completely identical seaside town lets. They are nice, they are charming... but if you need more - go away from those charming town lets with beautiful seaside views.At least we did so - after another charming tay at lovely resort town of Sitges, we...

Hotel Es Cel de Begur Review in Begur, Spain

On our third Spain trip day we stayed overnight at one of the interesting hotels I have ever stayed - Es Cel de Begur Hotel at Bergur.We booked this hotel on Booking.com it offered a huge savings, instead of paying EUR 400 we paid for room with partial sea view and bed with baldachine EUR 81.Well I doubt the actual value for this room is EUR 400, it's more some booking.com neat marketing trick. But price EUR 81 for such a hotel room in such an amazing place with partial, but still sea view...

Hotel Tarongeta Review in Cadaques

We stayed at hotel Tarongeta in Cadaques in our second day trip to Catalonia, Spain.You can read my photo article - covering Cadaques here.Choice of Tarongneta was made spontaneous and all agreements regarding accommodation was made on site, not using any third party booking services (thus, I must admit I found this hotel on booking.com before we arrived at Cadaques)This hotel offers few benefits - free parking on site, located in centre of Cadaques. The price? EUR 55 per night (I guess could...

Hotel Ultonia Review in Girona

During our first day on our Catalonia trip for a first night we stayed at Girona - Hotel Ultonia.For a starter I must admit - I wanted to book other less expensive hotel, but that was out of city centre - so hell, for a sake of couple of bucks we decided to book something valuable in city centre.But to keep up with the costs - I found it's more affordable if you are using hotelclub.com rather booking.com. Basicaly it works like this  - what on Booking costs in Euro's, the same on hotelclub...
