Along the coast of Spain you can find lovely places to dip your feet in the Mediterranean Sea while taking in some of the most beautiful views. For my birthday I was looking for a quick weekend getaway and my heart settled on Blanes.
Blanes is a quaint town located in the Province of Girona. It is a little less than 2 hours away from the border of France by car.
From my brief experience, it seems to be more of a European / Spanish vacation spot. At this time of the year (May) tourists were not flooding the beaches or nearby restaurants, which was exactly the break I needed from the constant energy that is forever flowing in Barcelona (current residence).
For those of you who don't know, I am originally from the United States of America and decided to move to Europe in October 2018. My boyfriend and I have been living in Barcelona since December!
To get to Blanes we took an hour and a half train ride from Barcelona to Blanes and a less than 10 minute bus ride to the coast. For this trip, I wanted to get away from the hectic city life in Barcelona and sleep as close to the water as possible. So, of course, we booked a hotel right on the beach! Without getting into details of our stay, I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures of our short but sweet visit, all raw & unedited. Enjoy..
