Let me just say that Sitges, Spain is quite possibly the nicest place I have ever visited. I had never heard of it before, I didn’t know what Connor had set us up for, but it plain knocked my socks off! It’s a little beach town about 30-40 minutes outside of Barcelona via train, and it was absolute heaven for me for the last week.
Upon arriving, I was immediately thrilled with the outcome of the airbnb flat we rented:
I should explain that while I most definitely loved Madrid and thoroughly enjoyed my time in that exquisite city (incredible parks, museums and restaurants), our accomodations consisted of a rather small bedroom within an apartment we shared with our 2 hosts (who slept in the living room) and 2 other guests (who slept in the other bedroom). So it was a bit cramped, and our bedroom had absolutely no sunlight b/c of there being zero windows & only 2 small, flimsy pillows over which Connor and I fought quite a bit. The hosts were incredibly kind and generous, and we had an excellent time in Madrid, so we couldn’t complain too much about our living situation. However, I was ecstatic when I was greeted by our Sitges flat 😀
And did I mention it was literally 20 meters from the beach! 5 out of the 7 days were in Sitges, I even managed a nice little jog along the boardwalk! This place clearly was doin’ wonders for my well-being…
Pretty much Sitges is where it’s at!
They even have a gay pride festival going on! So Connor made friends with a couple of the local drag queens 😀
We took the train into Barcelona couple days and did some exploring around the city as well.
For those of you who know Connor, it’ll come as no surprise that we rented a scooter…
We definitely got maximum usage out of our little “moto” and saw some amazing views and sights 😀
It’s safe to say that Spain has been my favorite country thus far, and Sitges is most definitely my favorite spot we’ve visited. When that alarm went off at 5am yesterday morning for us to catch our flight to Dubrovnik, I very nearly told Connor where he could stick that alarm and refused to leave such a blissful town. Alas, it was time for our next adventure, so I got my happy butt outta bed and now here we are in Croatia! On tap for today is a hike up Mount Srd and probably some beers to follow 😀
