We can all agree las Easter was quite unconventional, in fact, the whole year of 2020 was. Although we are still going through a global pandemic, we can all agree we do have more freedom that we did at this point last year.
I have never been the one to do loads of things during Easter, first off, I am not religious so the whole holiday itself doesn’t have a real meaning to me, a part from the fact that I get days off. Secondly, this years I decided I would spend it a bit more different than the previous years. We have been lucky enough to have the best weather so of course I tried to maximize my time exposed in the sun.
I started the week with some friends, although being from Catalonia, I had never been to Vic before, a little town in the Osona area. There are plenty of little villages around that are really worth your time as well as some walks in nature, great to disconnect for a while.
The first day we walked around Vic and got to know the area a bit more, we got there in the evening so we headed home and recharge our energies for the days ahead. The following day we wok super early and headed to Rupit,
From there, you can start a little walk to Salt de Sallent, the highest vertical waterfall in Catalonia. It is a 20 minute walk and it is easy access. Also, once you get there you can go to a viewpoint that it is not signed, yet if you keep walking on the left you will find pretty easily.
Once we got back after spending about an hour and a half walking around nature, we decided the best thing to do was to head back to Vic and do some Vermut. If you are not familiarized with the word, we do not literally mean the drink itself but the fact of going for a few tapas and drinks. Some people do like to get the vermouth to go along with the food but I personally am more of a beer girl.
On the following day, the weather was outstanding so we thought the best we could was to go to Costa Brava. If you have been a reader for a while, I am in love with Costa Brava. I have been going there since I was a little girl and l’Empordà has my heart. We headed to different areas such as Calella de Palafrugell, Begur (Illa roja and Sa Tuna). I will just let the images speak for themselves really.
We finished the week in Llançà, yet again, in love with this place and here are some shots I took while I was there. I would have loved to go kayaking as the water was real for it but I guess I will have to do it next time then!
