Nuria picked us up at our Hotel in Barcelona and we headed straight to there coast. While driving, she managed to also give us a thought background about the region, the politics, culture, economy, education and child care, history of Catalonia, real estate challenges, jobs for this just graduating, wages vs cost of living, status of the arts, and anything else we wanted to discuss. Driving along the Costa Brava was breathtaking, and climbing aboard the ship that was to carry us to Tossa De Mar was a treat because the vessel come up to the sandy beach, extended a ramp and we walked aboard! The vistas from the water were amazing and all too soon were were at Tossa which is incredibly beautiful, historic and ALIVE with beach going groups of all ages. And the BEST PART OF THE DAY was when Nuria took us to a beach where we could swim in the sea and enjoy the beach. After the ride back, we agreed the was an incredible adventure designed just for us an it was TERRIFIC!!
